Liverpool apply for £ 34million Salzburg teenager to ‘permanently’ move in 2022 – .

Salzburg teenager Karim Adeyemi is reportedly leaving the club ‘permanently’ next summer, with Liverpool among the clubs investigating a potential £ 34million deal.
Liverpool Have been following the forward’s progress for some time and invited him to a tryout at the age of 15 from German club SpVgg Unterhaching before moving to Salzburg.

The 19-year-old entered the Salzburg squad last season, scoring seven goals and nine assists in the Bundesliga, and has already scored ten goals in 12 appearances this season, including a brace against Lille in the Champions League .

This form has led Liverpool to rekindle their interest according to reports and Sky Germany now claim the striker will ‘permanently’ leave Salzburg in 2022, for a fee of between £ 25m and £ 34m.

Although Liverpool are credited with a recent investigation, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig have reportedly already had talks with Adeyemi’s representatives.

The report continues that the teenager’s “career plan” includes time in Germany “before he goes abroad”.

A move to Germany from Austria would come as no surprise, with Erling Haaland swapping Salzburg for Dortmund in 2020 and Naby Keita, Dominik Szoboszlai, Hwang Hee-chan and Dayot Upamecano have all switched to the Austrian side in Leipzig in recent years.

Adeyemi – who scored on his senior debut for Germany last month – will likely opt for a transfer to the Bundesliga ahead of a possible Premier League move.

But Liverpool will be in the game as they look to rejuvenate their squad with young talent.

Meanwhile, Dietmar Hamann urged his former club to replace Georginio Wijnaldum in January.

Hamann said: “You always have to watch the owners because they don’t want to spend stupid money on the players.

“You have to look at what Klopp has done in the past, he sold Coutinho for £ 140million and a couple more for decent prices.

“The net spending will be much lower than the other teams, but you have to credit Klopp for what he did at Liverpool.

“If the owners say there isn’t a lot of money to spend on transfers, then you just have to accept it.

“I think they could do with another player because Wijnaldum was a huge player.

“He was very reliable and he scored a lot of goals so I think they should be looking to bring someone in in January. “
