Liverpool are in talks with Red Bull Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi to slam Borussia Dortmund on a deal.
This is reported by Sky Sports Austriawho claim that Dortmund have achieved a breakthrough in talks with Salzburg.
Negotiations between Dortmund and Salzburg have been going on for weeks, and there is said to be a rough agreement.
A deal worth around €35million (£29million) is in the pipeline but a final deal with Adeyemi is yet to come.
That means Dortmund could actually miss out as Adeyemi is in talks with three other clubs over a summer move.
Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig – Salzburg’s sister club – are all said to be in talks to sign Adeyemi this summer.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be shocked by Liverpool’s interest in Adeyemi, but it seems to have come out of nowhere.
Sure Liverpool have been linked with Adeyemi but starting talks is a very recent development.
Liverpool love to sign a player with Red Bull connections; Sadio Mane, Naby Keita, Takumi Minamino and Ibrahima Konate have all played for Red Bull Salzburg, RB Leipzig or both.
Adeyemi has huge potential and suits Liverpool’s vision; young and rising with his prime ahead of him.
The 20-year-old has scored 20 goals and provided five assists in 38 games this season, with the German continuing to shine in Austria.
A big move is on the horizon this summer but would a move to Liverpool really make sense?
Liverpool already have five top attackers; Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane.
They are so good that Divock Origi and ex-Salzburg ace Takumi Minamino can’t get a taste of them at the moment.
Adeyemi is very talented but he would likely struggle with the first team if he joined Liverpool this summer.
First-team football will be more realistic with Dortmund or Leipzig and we can’t really see a Liverpool deal.
