Chelsea plan to make a move for Leeds United star Tyler Adams, should they fail to sign Moises Caicedo from Brighton.

Chelsea have had four bids for the 21-year-old Seagulls star rejected so far this summer, with the latest offer worth £80million.

Brighton are reported to be holding out for £100million for the former Independiente del Valle star.

The Athletic reports that Chelsea have made a backup plan, if they fail to convince Brighton to sell.

The Blues could turn to 24-year-old USMNT star Adams, who has a £20million release clause in his contract and has been strongly linked with a move away from the club, following their relegation to the Championship.
