Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to steal ‘ideal’ Ronaldo understudy from Manchester United


Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to steal ‘ideal’ Ronaldo understudy from Manchester United

Liverpool may have just jumped ahead of Manchester United in the race to sign a young breakout star.

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have been outstanding for Liverpool this season, as they always are. The two prolific strikers picked up where they left off, combining for 18 goals to date.

However,  Sport Witness reported that the Reds are still looking to add depth up front and have “their eyes” on RB Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi, citing a page from a recent printed edition of German outlet Kurier.

According to the report, a number of big-name European clubs are interested in signing Adeyemi, but Liverpool has been the youngster’s top suitor “over the last few weeks.”

If Liverpool’s interest in Adeyemi is genuine, the Merseyside club must act quickly, as Bayern Munich is also looking to add the forward to its squad.

Indeed, “talks” between Bayern Munich and Adeyemi’s advisor Thomas Solomon, as well as father Abbey, are said to have taken place on Säbener Straße on Saturday, October 16.

According to the report, RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund are among the other clubs interested in Adeyemi.

Furthermore, things are expected to move quickly, as Adeyemi’s transfer, which could cost between €30 and 40 million ($35 and 46 million), is expected to take place sooner rather than later.

The aforementioned sum will reportedly make Adeyemi the most expensive player in Austrian league history, breaking the record set by Patson Daka’s move to Leicester City this summer.

Manchester United is another of Adeyemi’s admirers.

According to a previous report, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are considering a move for the 19-year-old.

The Red Devils “might be able to rectify” their mistake of missing out on Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland by strategically planning a move for Adeyemi, according to the report.

What’s more, the report claims that Adeyemi and Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin are two young players Manchester United could consider as “ideal replacements” for aging strikers Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani.

Adeyemi is now regarded as one of Austria’s most coveted rising stars.

Last year, in his first full senior team season with RB Salzburg, he scored nine goals in ten matches across all competitions.

On top of that, the forward had an outstanding 11 assists to his name.
