Chelsea, Liverpool in transfer tussle to sign Karim Adeyemi

Chelsea and Liverpool are reportedly competing with other top clubs in the race to sign Karim Adeyemi from Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund.

According to a report by reputed German journalist Patrick Berger on Sky Sports Deutschland, Karim Adeyemi might leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window. Chelsea and Liverpool are among the prospective suitors for the German international. Meanwhile, a separate update has revealed that the Bundesliga giants want around €30 million to sell the young attacker.

Karim Adeyemi and his topsy-turvy ride at Borussia Dortmund

Karim Adeyemi has blown hot and cold since joining Borussia Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg in July 2022. The 22-year-old was one of the most highly sought-after young attacking prospects in the world when he left the Austrian giants to return to Germany nearly two years ago.

While the young attacker remains a promising prospect, he has not been prolific in the final third for the Bundesliga club. Adeyemi has turned out 66 times thus far for Borussia Dortmund, chipping in with 14 goals and eight assists. Meanwhile, the player’s stock in the market remains high.

The German international has captured the attention of a few high-profile clubs, with recent reports linking him with Barcelona. A move to the Premier League might be on the cards, with Chelsea and Liverpool vying for Karim Adeyemi’s signature in the summer transfer window.

Premier League move on the horizon?

Chelsea’s interest in Karim Adeyemi is understandable. The Blues have been scouring the market for a wide attacker heading into the summer transfer window amid the inconsistencies of Raheem Sterling and Mykhailo Mudryk. Several candidates, including Desire Doue, have thus emerged on Chelsea’s radar, with Adeyemi also a viable target.

As for Liverpool, the Merseyside club mulled over signing Adeyemi from Borussia Dortmund last summer before a move failed to materialise. The continued interest is understandable, with Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah facing an uncertain future at Anfield. So, the German international is an option worth considering for Liverpool.

Meanwhile, a report by TEAMtalk has claimed that the Bundesliga giants want €30 million to part ways with the 22-year-old in the summer transfer window. It will be interesting to see if Chelsea and Liverpool launch the offensive to sign him in the coming weeks.
