Who is Karim Adeyemi?

Remember the name.

For the next year or so, until he moves clubs, you will hear about and read about Karim Adeyemi.

The 19-year-old German striker is the next best thing, straight off the Red Bull production line.

Before the international break he had six goals in six games for Salzburg in the league.

Chelsea approached Karim Adeyemi

Some clubs have had their eye on the forward for some years.

Reports have claimed the Chelsea tried to sign Karim Adeyemi when the striker was 16-years-old.

The Express has stated that the Blues flew him over to London two years ago for talks.

However, the player and his camp decided it would be better for his development if he stayed with Salzburg. The report adds that the Reds are one of a number of interested parties.

What RTK has to say

Transfermarkt has claimed Liverpool want to sign Karim Adeyemi.

We need him urgently given the lack of quality in depth in the final third.

Given that Chelsea have tried their luck before we shouldn’t let another important signing slip us by.

The Reds need to go all out to bring the German to Anfield.
