Borussia Dortmund are said to be the favourites to sign Karim Adeyemi, and the RB Salzburg striker reportedly sees the club as the perfect next step for his career.

Karim Adeyemi looks set to leave RB Salzburg next summer and the Bundesliga appears to be his preferred destination. Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig are all said to be interested in signing the highly rated striker. And it looks like the Black and Yellows are leading the race for his signature.

This is being reported by Sport1, who add that there have been promising talks so far between Adeyemi’s representatives and the Borussia Dortmund bosses. Sebastian Kehl and Michael Zorc are keen on bringing the 19 year old to the club, irrespective of what the future holds for Erling Haaland. They do not see the German international as being a one on one replacement for the Norwegian international, who could leave the club next summer.

The report also adds that Adeyemi sees Borussia Dortmund as the perfect next step for his career, and the club is very appealing to him. Despite Bayern Munich’s interest, Adeyemi prefers a move to Dortmund as he wants regular playing time. He also believes that BVB is the best club to help him develop further.

Adeyemi still has three years left on his RB Salzburg contract, but the Austrian giants are ready to sell him next summer for a fee of 30-35 million euros.
