Journalist Reveals 34M Barca Bid Could End Arsenal And Other PL Clubs’ Hopes Of Signing German Wonderkid

Barcelona could table a €40m (£34m) bid for Red Bull Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi as soon as “this week”, according to Sport1‘s chief reporter Patrick Berger.

Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City are thought to be among the teams interested in the 19-year-old, who has impressed with his performances for Salzburg this season, having scored 15 goals. Berger, however, believes that Borussia Dortmund remain favourites for the German international’s signature:

The Gunners are said to be on the lookout for a striker, with Alexandre Lacazette expected to leave the Emirates when his contract expires in June, and Adeyemi would have been an exciting addition.

However, competition for the teenager’s signature appears to be too great and it looks as though Edu and his recruitment staff have already begun to look at other targets.

Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic, Real Sociedad’s Alexander Isak, Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins and Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin have all been mentioned as possible options in recent weeks.
