Liverpool: Sky Sports Germany drop Karim Adeyemi update

Liverpool: Sky Sports Germany drop Karim Adeyemi update -Liverpool News

According to a report from Sky Sports Germany (via Sport Witness), Liverpool are still ‘in talks’ to sign Red Bull Salzburg sensation Karim Adeyemi. 

The lowdown: Dortmund bound?

The Reds have been heavily linked with a move for the 20-year-old in the past but it had appeared a move to Borussia Dortmund was on the horizon for the upcoming summer window.

Already a regular for club and country, Adeyemi has amassed an incredible 45 domestic goals and 32 assists in his senior career to date, racking up 123 first-team appearances after a sensational career at youth level.

He has scored once in three caps for Germany, and Liverpool could be about to spoil Dortmund’s party if reports on the continent are to be believed…

The latest: Reds in talks, Klopp loves him

As per Sky Sports Germany, translated by SW, the Anfield club are believed to be ‘still in talks’ with representatives of the exciting youngster.

The report claims that despite Salzburg and Dortmund reaching an ‘agreement in principle’, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain remain interested in scuppering the deal, and Jurgen Klopp is personally a ‘big fan’ of the player.

Dortmund were expected to pay €35million (£29million) for the man who was described as an ‘ice cold’ finisher by national team boss Hansi Flick.

The verdict: Make it happen

We feel Adeyemi would be worth the additional hard work that has so often been avoided by a clean transfer strategy amongst the Reds recruitment team.

As Julian Ward prepares to cut his teeth in place of acclaimed sporting director Michael Edwards, pulling off this kind of coup would be the ideal way to endear yourself to the Anfield faithful – Ward already played a big role in the capture of immediate fan favourite Luis Diaz.

So far this seasonm the versatile Adeyemi has scored 20 times and provided five assists in 38 appearances across all competitions – including five direct goal contributions in the UEFA Champions League.

Those numbers alone are proof of a player ready to take the next step in a promising career, but it’s the youngster’s ability to play across the frontline that would truly make Adeyemi a superb addition to Klopp’s already blessed squad, potentially starring in the next generation of Liverpool forward’s after the current famous trio eventually move on.
