Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig circling for FC Salzburg’s Karim Adeyemi

TOP STORY: Bundesliga clubs to battle for Adeyemi

FC Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi will choose to join either Borussia Dortmund or RB Leipzig in the summer, as has been reported by Sky Sports Deutschland.

This comes despite some of Europe’s top clubs, including Bayern Munich and Liverpool, both showing real interest in signing the 19-year-old prodigy.

The report says the youngster is looking for a foothold to play in his native Germany and could follow Erling Haaland’s path of using Dortmund as place to acclimatise himself to the Bundesliga.

The move to either Dortmund or Leipzig could be used as an eventual springboard to Bayern as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski whenever the Poland striker moves on.

Haaland seems likely to leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer, Adeyemi’s camp believes that he can get plenty of game time there next season, adds the story.

However, Leipzig and Salzburg are closely linked, and the two clubs are already said to have discussed a move.

Adeyemi is seen as one of the most exciting attackers in Europe and already has 11 goals and two assists from 16 appearances across all competitions this season — including two goals in the Champions League group stages.
