Edwards plotting move to reinforce attack in January but must pay €30m to do so – strong relationship with club 

Liverpool have a ‘strong interest’ in bringing RB Salzburg attacker Karim Adeyemi to Anfield in January but they will need to pay €30million to do so.

According to Bild, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Liverpool are all interested in the 19-year-old but after signing Takumi Minamino last January, the Reds may already have the contacts in place to fast-track a deal for the German.

According to Transfermarkt, Barca and Liverpool have a “strong interest in signing the offensive player” and a “fee of around 30 million euros is necessary” to recruit his services.

Last season, Adeyemi scored 9 goals and assisted 11, playing alongside the prolific Patson Daka and this season, he seems to have shouldered the goalscoring responsibility and has scored 7 goals in 9 games for RB Salzburg.

Adeyemi

Adeyemi fits perfectly the Liverpool transfer profile. Still only 19, he’s rapid, has an eye for goal and can play anywhere across the front three but most importantly, he is already comfortable in a high pressing system.

Liverpool’s relationship with RB Salzburg is strong after they bought Minamino last year and so I wonder if that would help them sign Adeyemi and Jurgen Klopp even praised the Austrian club directly when the Japanese forward joined the Reds.

Adeyemi would be a decent signing for Klopp’s side and would come into the squad with the potential to make an impact without the need for an immediate starting role which would give the German forward time to acclimatise to life in the Premier League and would be able to learn from Sadio Mane and co.

Karim Adeyemi

€30million for a young forward with the potential to grow into a top player would be great business and it seems like the type of deal that Michael Edwards has become well known for.

It’s a pity Liverpool didn’t make any signings this summer but if they atone for it in January, it might not be that bad after all.
