Arsenal face competition for RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams

Arsenal are facing competition for RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams.

CBS Sports says Adams is on manager Mikel Arteta's radar - but his club face stiff competition from other PL outfits also looking at the USA international.

Despite signing a new contract with the East German club in March and soon to be reunited with American coach Jesse Marsch, who gave him his debut for New York Red Bulls in 2016, CBS' sources have indicated that the Bundesliga midfielder has a release clause in his contract.

The Gunners are said to be 'seriously interested' but some sides who'll be competing in Europe next term are better placed to secure his signature.

Extremely versatile, he can also fill in as a wing-back or right-back, which could appeal to Arteta if Hector Bellerin also packs his bags this summer.
