Liverpool would reportedly ‘gladly take’ RB Salzburg’s Karim Adeyemi in the summer, but a transfer to Borussia Dortmund is more likely at this moment.
The German has emerged as one of the hottest prospects in Europe over the last year, establishing himself as the key man for Die Roten Bullen and enjoying his international debut with his country’s national team.
This season Karim has 14 goals and two assists in 17 matches in the Austrian Bundesliga and also three goals and two assists in six outings in the UEFA Champions League, numbers which have not gone unnoticed around Europe.
All of the elite clubs are interested in the 20-year-old’s signature, including Jurgen Klopp’s side, who have been named as potential buyers on numerous occasions in the last multiple months.
Back in November, it was reported that the Anfield outfit would be appealing for the talent, and a call from the manager would make the player think twice about his future.
At the minute, Die Borussen appear to be leading that hunt and the attacking sensation has already turned down an offer from RB Leipzig, Bild reports.
That means there is still time for the Merseysiders to get their man if they want, although Adeyemi is clearly leaning towards BVB at this point.
Whether Liverpool would want to, given they have just signed Luis Diaz, is another topic, but there are still doubts about star winger Mohamed Salah’s future, with his deal expiring next summer and no extension signed as yet.
