Alex McLeish has revealed Scotland are in talks to give Che Adams a national team call up.
The Tartan Army manager spoke to the media this morning and covered a number of subjects, including Scotland’s under-fire referees and the plastic pitch that his team will play on away at Kazakhstan next month.
And while he didn’t announce a squad ahead of the games against Kazakhstan and San Marino, McLeish did reveal that Adams could be included:
But who is Adams? That’s a question many will be asking between now and whenever a decision is made on his international future.
Here, we tell you why Scotland fans should be excited about Adams’ potential call up:
He’s a 22-Year-Old Talented StrikerEmbed from Getty Images
Adams has been starring for Birmingham as a striker under Garry Monk this season, helping them to ninth in the English Championship table at this point of the campaign. His 19 goals this season is outstanding for a 22-year-old and you’d expect him to hit more between now and the end of the season.

Tottenham, Celtic and Southampton Have All Been Linked With Him
And those aren’t the only teams who have been linked with Adams. His strong form suggests it won’t be long until he’s in the English Premier League and that could be big if Scotland manage to call him up soon.
Chris Sutton is a Big Fan
He said: “Che Adams I like. I think he is a tremendous young talent with great movement. Adams is a really exciting prospect. He’s got good pace is intelligent and I think he is going places.”

With Leigh Griffiths still not back in a Celtic shirt, that reduces the amount of quality in the Scotland striking department. So the addition of Adams to the likes of Oli McBurnie, Steven Fletcher, Matt Phillips and Johnny Russell will really help McLeish and the national team.
