Tyler Adams has sent some Arsenal fans into a transfer frenzy.
The Gunners’ search for a new right-back has seen them linked with a move for the RB Leipzig star
According to The Athletic, Adams is seen as an addition that could potentially plug a number of gaps in Mikel Arteta’s squad – including both in central midfield and at right-back.
Furthermore, according to CBS, the Arsenal manager and technical director Edu might well have been handed encouragement in their attempts to sign Adams with the news that he has a release clause inserted in his contract at the Red Bull Arena,
Whilst the value of that clause has not been disclosed, it could make a summer deal more straightforward, as the Gunners would not need to enter negotiations with the Bundesliga outfit.
Interestingly, Adams’ estimated transfer value on CIES Football Observatory is between €40m-€50m (£34m-£42m).
Therefore, if the release clause is lower than the aforementioned valuation, it could be a good idea to activate it as soon as possible as the Gunners could be getting themselves a bargain.
But is Adams teasing a move to the Emirates Stadium?
That could well be the case as Arsenal fans have taken to Reddit to share a theory after the 22-year-old’s uploaded an interesting post on his official Instagram account.
As seen in the image above, Adams shared a video of Emile Smith Rowe – his former teammate at Leipzig – with a two-word message that read: “My Guy”.
The summer window is officially open, and it’s going to be tough to keep up with the comings and goings in and out of the Emirates.
