AC Milan join race for €35m-rated striker taking Europe by storm

AC Milan have joined the race for €35 million rated RB Salzburg gem Karim Adeyemi. The young German striker is followed by Europe’s biggest clubs.

The Rossoneri are looking for a young, convincing and talented centre forward who can inherit the weight of the AC Milan attack from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Oliver Giroud. According to French sources, AC Milan have joined the race for Red Bull Salzburg wonderkid Karim Adeyemi. The 19-year-old striker is attracting the attention of the major European clubs with his goals this season.

The former Bayern Munich youth academy talent is making waves in the Austrian Bundesliga. After scoring 9 goals and providing 11 assists in 38 appearances last season, the new year has started even better for Adeyemi who has already found the back of the net on 11 occasions in 16 appearances so far. His recent performances have increased Adeyemi’s market value to around 35 million euros.

The young German striker has done quite well in the Champions League recording 2 goals and 1 assist with RB Salzburg. In addition, he scored on his debut with the German national team. Impressive numbers for a 19-year-old player. Adeyemi has a contract that binds him to Salzburg until 2024 but the big European clubs are ready to snatch him from the Austrian club.

Red Bull Salzburg have reportedly set an asking price between 30 and 35 million euros. The most interested club seems to be Laporta’s Barcelona. But according to Le10Sports, AC Milan, Inter, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund are also in the race for his services.

Karim Adeyemi is a centre forward with a keen eye for goal but he’s also a versatile player that likes to dribble on both wings. The competition for the German international is set to be fierce but the Rossoneri want to try their chances.
