Liverpool and Arsenal have reportedly both set their sights on RB Salzburg starlet Karim Adeyemi, who has already seen a bid rejected from Barcelona.

The 17-year-old striker is currently on loan at FC Liefering and has bagged seven goals and five assists in 14 matches so far this season.

In turn, he appears to be the latest talented youngster to come out of Salzburg, and his form has already begun to attract interest from around Europe.

The Sun claimed both Liverpool and Arsenal are keen on him and could enter a transfer scrap over his put pen to paper, although they could also face competition from Barca as the report adds that the Spanish giants have already had a £13m rejected.

That would suggest that Karim Adeyemi is going to cost more than that fee to convince RB Salzburg to sell, but time will tell just how much as eventually given he hasn’t proven his talent at the highest level yet on a consistent basis, the clubs have shown to be interested will certainly weigh up the risk factor of splashing out on a young star too.

Liverpool look set in that department as they continue to pursue significant trophies this campaign, but perhaps Jurgen Klopp is keen to add some long-term solutions too.

As for Arsenal, they’ve struggled for goals so far this year as they’ve scored just 16 in 12 Premier League games, despite the talent available to Unai Emery.

In turn, as seen with the practical early impact from Gabriel Martinelli, the Gunners could be tempted to swoop for another talented youngster to add more firepower to their squad moving forward.
