Rumour has it that Liverpool are interested in signing teenage wonder kid Karim Adeyemi. He is currently playing for RB Salzburg as a forward.
This rumour originated by Sky Germany with many believing that he will move to Bayern Munich. Now, given that he is German, playing for Munich is certainly attractive. However playing for a German coach, Jurgen Klopp is equally attractive too.
Barcelona are also in the hunt. However given the way things have transpired in the recent past, it seems less likely that he will join the Catalan club.
Liverpool have a very strong relationship with RB Salzburg. They’ve bought Naby Keita and Takumi Minamino from them in the past. This only means, if Liverpool interest is genuine, then there is a high chance that the deal might go through.
The 19-year-old forward is available for just £25.5 million. Keeping that in mind, he fits the transfer strategy of FSG. He is young, talented and not too expensive.
He certainly has an eye for goal. He has shown that he possesses the ability to carry the ball or also make a smart poachers finish. Under the right coach and with the correct atmosphere, he has the ability to reach the very top.
He has had a stellar season so far. He has made 15 appearances across all competitions netting a total of 11 times. These statistics are certainly mind boggling for a 19-year-old.
Adeyemi made his senior debut for Germany against Armenia. He came on as a late substitute and scored his side's 6th goal of the game in injury time.
We will have to wait and watch if Liverpool do up their interest in him with the AFCON around the corner or wait till the summer and snap him up, if he is still available.
