Arsenal linked with a move for RB Salzburg teenager Karim Adeyemi.
The latest transfer rumours doing the rounds claim that Arsenal want to sign RB Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi
The teenager has been in fine form for the Austrian side’s feeder team, Liefering and his performances have attracted the interest of some of Europe’s top sides.
Adeyemi started his career at Bayern Munich but left the German champions to pursue a senior career elsewhere. He has since developed into one of the best young strikers in Austria.
The Gunners are rivalled by Liverpool and Barcelona in their bid to sign him. The Reds have watched him closely as he turned out against their U19 side in the UEFA Youth League.
While Liverpool and Arsenal have been monitoring him, Barcelona has reportedly made a bid of €15m. That bid was reportedly rejected and the Catalans haven’t returned with a better offer.
Arsenal has apparently been attracted to Adeyemi after the success of Gabriel Martinelli. The young Brazilian joined Arsenal from Ituano over the summer and he has been a revelation.
Adeyemi would prioritize his development at this stage of his career, it is unclear if Arsenal would be able to convince him to make the move from a team where he plays regularly.
To be honest, I know nothing about the young lad. I have watched a video of him and he looks decent. However, we all know that videos can be misleading. I also do not understand why we would want him when we have an abundance of young strikers already.
It is November and the transfer window opens in the next eight weeks or so. This means the gossip will very shortly kick into overdrive. This particular piece of speculation is probably just the start of an avalanche of rumours about to descend upon us all.
