Liverpool fans have been voicing their opinions on Twitter after Karim Adeyemi starred for Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Adeyemi won three penalties in the first half in the 1-1 draw with Sevilla in the opening group stage match.
While he missed one of them himself, the Spanish side’s defence was simply not able to handle him.
It was the latest of a string of impressive performances from the 19-year-old.
He has six goals and one assist in seven A. Bundesliga games this season. This has led many to call him the next big striker in the sport.
Many sides are interested, with Liverpool one of them, according to BILD.
Goal even report that the Reds have been scouting him for three years.
Adeyemi may be the next Red Bull recruit at Liverpool
All of the evidence suggests that Adeyemi is going to be a world-class footballer.
He has been tipped for stardom for a few years now and has finally become Salzburg’s starting striker this season. This means that he is following in the footsteps of Erling Haaland and Patson Daka.
The Red Bull system is possibly the best in the world for recruiting and making stars right now. If a player is picked up by them, it is because they have elite potential.
The amount of goals that Adeyemi is scoring at a young age suggests that he is on his way to the top.
He has even impressed Germany boss Hansi Flick enough to give him his senior debut, which he scored on, last week.
In our view, he should follow Sadio Mane, Naby Keita, Taki Minamino and Ibou Konate in making the move to Merseyside after a spell in the Red Bull system.
The fact that he has recently been commenting on Harvey Elliott’s Instagram posts are only firming up this opinion.
Fans on Twitter want him signed
Following the recent reports of Liverpool interest, fans tuned in to see Adeyemi playing in Tuesday’s game.
While he didn’t find the score sheet, he impressed enough to encourage certain Kopites to beg for his signing on Twitter.
Here are some of our favourite reactions.
