Liverpool and Arsenal have reportedly both set their sights on RB Salzburg starlet Karim Adeyemi, who has already seen a bid denied from Barcelona.
The 17-year-old is currently on loan at FC Liefering and has scored seven goals and five assists in 14 matches so far this season.
In turn, he seems to be the latest talented youngster to come out of Salzburg, and his form has already started to attract interest from around Europe.
According to The Sun, both Liverpool and Arsenal are keen on him and could enter a transfer scrap over his signature, although they could also face competition from Barcelona as the report adds that the Catalan giants have already had a £13m declined.
That would suggest that Karim Adeyemi is going to cost more than that fee to convince Salzburg to sell, but time will tell just how much as ultimately given he hasn’t confirmed his ability at the highest level yet on a consistent basis, the clubs supposed to be interested would surely weigh up the risk factor of splashing out on a young star too.
Liverpool appear 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 netted just 16 in 12 Premier League games, notwithstanding the talent available to Unai Emery.
In turn, as seen with the impressive early impact from Gabriel Martinelli, the Gunners could be tempted to swoop for another talented starlet to add more firepower to their squad moving forward.
