Wolves to be gazumped by Premier League rivals in battle to sign Che Adams

    Nottingham Forest are set to gazump Wolves in the battle to sign Scotland striker Che Adams, talkSPORT understands.

    Adams’ move to Molineux is stalling because of a dispute over agents fees, allowing Forest to steal in.

    Adams is available on a free transfer after his Southampton contract expired.

    Wolves manager Gary O’Neil stated earlier in the season Wolves do not have a lot of funds at their disposal this summer, with Adams seen as an attractive option due to him costing nothing from July 1.

    O’Neil said last month: “I don’t think there will be money available to us if nobody leaves.”

    O’Neil added: “I wouldn’t expect it to be a summer where we spend millions of the club’s own money on players.

    “I think it won’t be the same as last year where we have to sell loads and make a huge profit, but I wouldn’t expect it to be a spending spree.”

    But it looks like Forest are going to pinch Adams, who helped Southampton back into the Premier League, from Wolves’ grasp with money expected to be tight at the City Ground this summer.

    Forest were docked four points in March after an independent commission ruled that the club had breached the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

    They failed in their appeal to have the deduction overturned but managed to stay in the top flight anyway as they came 17th in the table, six points clear of 18th-placed Luton Town, Burnley and Sheffield United were also relegated.

    Meanwhile, Wolves came 14th in the Premier League with 46 points, amassing 14 points more than Forest.

    This is another huge setback for Wolves, who earlier on Thursday had their bid to scrap VAR rejected by their fellow Premier League clubs.

    Adams leaves Saints after five years at the club, having joined them in 2019 from Birmingham.

    The 27-year-old, who has 30 caps for Scotland, has also represented Sheffield United as well as non-league sides Ilkeston and Oadby Town.
