Karim Adeyemi will move in 2022, according to reports. Liverpool have supposedly asked about the RB Salzburg forward.
This comes from Sky Germany. They claim that Karim Adeyemi will be on the move in 2022 – though, clubs may need to wait until the summer.
There’s a growing list of suitors, too, given the teenager’s exploits this season. Adeyemi has taken over from Patson Daka as Salzburg’s shining attack light, scoring for fun on a regular basis now.
He’s already got 11 goals to his name across the Austrian Bundesliga and Champions League. But his figures only tell half the story. Adeyemi has been quite incredible in European competition, winning four penalties in two games against Sevilla and Lille.
Top defences struggle to handle his pace and movement – there’s a very special player here if a club stumps up the right amount of cash.
And that amount will be over £30m, according to Sky. It could fall as low as £25m but the high end will push towards £40m. We imagine the interest in Adeyemi will drive the price towards that higher mark.
As for that interest, it’s coming from some fairly predictable places.
Adeyemi to move in 2022
Adeyemi isn’t just German but Bavarian. He started with Bayern Munich before leaving their youth system at a young age – now they want him back.
Borussia Dortmund would quite like the player, too, however. It’s hard to think of a better replacement for Erling Haaland, should the ex-Salzburg man leave next summer.
Both clubs will likely tempt Adeyemi. He apparently sees the German Bundesliga as the ideal next step – it just depends on the club. Bayern will offer him immediate stardom but not necessarily an immediate starring role.
Dortmund, on the other hand, have a wonderful track record of developing young players. They can’t offer him title after title, though.
And then there’s Liverpool. The Reds have asked about Adeyemi yet again, say Sky, but it sounds as though he’ll take some convincing. The Reds are quite firmly not in Germany’s Bundesliga, after all.
Adeyemi, then, has a few more months to figure out what he really wants.
