Those responsible at Borussia Dortmund are busy planning the future. And a big focus is currently apparently on a commitment from Karim Adeyemi. BVB has long been said to be interested in the national player. Now it will probably be more concrete: how heaven sports reported, those responsible in Dortmund are said to have started concrete negotiations with RB Salzburg about a change in the summer. Accordingly, sports director Michael Zorc and his designated successor Sebastian Kehl are said to have returned from negotiations in Austria on Monday.
Adeyemi is under contract with the Austrian champions until 2024. Since his working paper apparently does not contain an exit clause either, Salzburg can freely negotiate the transfer. In December there were rumors about an agreement between the 20-year-old and BVB. Adeyemi disagrees and stressed that “nothing is fixed yet”. However, the adviser of the coveted youngster underlined considerations about a move to the Bundesliga: “The best thing for him is a German club,” Thomas Solomon told the Spanish specialist newspaper Sports.
According to reports, the transfer ideas from Salzburg and Dortmund were still a good deal apart. RB is said to be demanding between 30 and 40 million euros for the top scorer in the Austrian Bundesliga. Adeyemi has already scored 14 goals for the team of German coach Matthias Jaissle this season. In the fan vote for the “Golden Boy”, an award from the Italian tuttosport for the best young player, Adeyemi recently secured the “Web Award”.
