Negotiations have collapsed for Chelsea’s pursuit of Tyler Adams, according to reports from football.london.
The club seemed poised to secure the services of the 24-year-old American, after triggering his £20 million release clause from Leeds United.
This move for Adams gained traction as Chelsea faced difficulties reaching an agreement with Brighton for Moises Caicedo.
However, despite their efforts, no deal has been struck between the parties involved. Nevertheless, hopes are still alive for Caicedo’s potential transfer.
Unlike Liverpool, who successfully secured Brighton’s approval for a £110 million deal on Thursday, Chelsea is yet to have an offer accepted for Caicedo.
This was confirmed by Jurgen Klopp during his Friday morning press conference. Nonetheless, the door remains open for the player to join Chelsea.
The situation has prompted speculation that Chelsea could outmaneuver their opponents, potentially landing Caicedo.
As of now, the Ecuadorian talent has not undergone a medical evaluation with Liverpool, leaving room for Chelsea to make a move.
Regarding these developments, Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea’s manager, chose not to divulge the status of any potential deal for Caicedo.
He emphasized his satisfaction with the club’s operational strategies and refrained from discussing players not currently on the team roster.
Pochettino expressed, “I think you know me very well. I never talk about players who do not belong to us. I think I am so respectful.
I can tell you we are working really hard to add more players to the squad, add quality. If we have some update to make for you, the club will do.”
He further underscored the respectful approach in dealings with other clubs and players, highlighting the intensive efforts to enhance the team’s quality and overall squad.
Pochettino conveyed contentment with the collaborative atmosphere among himself, Paul (presumably a staff member), Laurence (presumably another staff member), and the club’s ownership, which has yielded positive results so far.
In summary, Chelsea’s pursuit of Tyler Adams has hit a snag, while their bid for Moises Caicedo remains in play.
Pochettino’s focus on respectful and diligent work was evident as he shared the club’s dedication to reinforcing the team’s capabilities.
