Liverpool handed boost in Karim Adeyemi pursuit

Liverpool have been handed a huge boost in their bid to bring Red Bull Salzburg forward Karim Adeyemi to Anfield in the summer transfer window.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to Fabrizio Romano, with the Italian journalist revealing in a recent post on Twitter that the Austrian side have now completed the signing of Shakhtar Donetsk’s Brazilian striker Fernando, after reaching an early agreement to sign the 23-year-old from the Ukrainian outfit.

In an earlier tweet, Romano had claimed that Fernando will be the replacement for Salzburg’s Karim Adeyemi – who himself has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool this summer.

Would Adeyemi be a good signing for Liverpool?

A huge boost

With the latest news from Romano announcing RB Salzburg’s capture of the Brazilian, it opens up Liverpool’s move for Karim Adeyemi.

Following on from his break-out season for Salzburg last year – that saw him conjure up seven goals and nine assists in 29 league appearances – the German has continued his electrifying development this term.

Indeed, Adeyemi’s 20 goals and five assists from 39 appearances in all competitions have fired his side to the very top of the Austrian Bundesliga and into the final of the Austrian Cup.

Furthermore, his three goals and two assists over eight Champions League fixtures has seen the youngster emerge as a target for some of Europe’s largest outfits – with Liverpool facing competition for the youngster’s signature from Klopp’s old side Borussia Dortmund.

First up in this 2020/21 season quiz, how many PL goals did Mo Salah score?

His game as a forward is well-rounded and, at the tender age of 20, he has done enough to prove his efficiency as a Firmino-type centre-forward – one who can both score and create goals. His 11 assists last season demonstrate this nicely.

The £31.5m-rated starlet has garnered some impressive numbers this season – seeing him rank equal with Roberto Firmino with around three shot-creating actions per 90 minutes.

However, the German massively outdoes the Brazilian when it comes to goal-creating actions, with his 0.60 GCA per 90 placing him in the elite category for this metric, in comparison to positionally similar players over the last year.

In recent years, Liverpool have been incredibly impressive in the transfer market, and this feels like another deal that could go down as a huge success in the club’s history.
