Phil Brown wants to partner Adu with his American teammate Altidore.
Currently back at Benfica after another unsuccessful loan stint with Belenenses, the 20-year-old is apparently looking for a new club to try and establish himself.
A loan move to Greek club Aris is one option for Adu, but nothing has been finalized yet and Brown's EPL club may be another avenue for him to consider.
Previously a member of DC United, Adu has suffered through a difficult spell in Europe and has lost a place in the USMNT with only six months remaining before the 2010 World Cup.
