    But the Daily Mail claim the Saints No10 is interested in a move to Goodison Park.

    Ralph Hasenhuttl has now squeezed Adams a place further down their pecking order and sides may have a chance to nab him.

    Southampton paid around £15million for Adams in 2019.

    He has since become a regular in the side – featuring 110 times and scoring 21 goals.

    The forward’s form was rewarded with a place in the Scotland national team in time for Euro2020.

    However, with the addition of forward Sekou Mara – a £12m signing from Bordeaux – it appears his chances in the first team might be limited.

    Leeds are said to be circling too and would like to do business at around £10m.

    Adams started his career at Sheffield United and could fancy a return to Yorkshire if it means he gets more game time.

    Saints are looking for more of a profit but there is optimism that a compromise figure can be reached with one of the chasing pack.

    Meanwhile, the Toffees have completed the signing of Amadou Onana for £33.5million.

    The Belgian star, 20, penned a five-year deal at Goodison Park to complete his switch from Lille.
