Karim Adeyemi is said to be attracting the interest of Juventus, and Borussia Dortmund would reportedly be willing to sell him for a fee of around 30 million euros.

Reports have claimed in recent weeks that Borussia Dortmund will likely look to sell at least one of Karim Adeyemi and Donyell Malen this summer. And according to BILD, Juventus would like to bolster their squad with the signing of the German forward.

The tabloid claims that newly appointed Juventus head coach Thiago Motta is a big fan of Adeyemi. And Borussia Dortmund would be prepared to part ways with the 22 year old if they were to receive an offer of at least 30 million euros.

BVB sporting director Sebastian Kehl had made it clear ahead of the Champions League final that Adeyemi is not for sale. But rumours about the forward’s future continue to swirl, even with three years remaining on his current contract.

Adeyemi has scored 14 goals and assisted a further eight in 66 appearances for Borussia Dortmund since his move from RB Salzburg in 2022. He won the Bundesliga Rookie of the Year award in his debut season at BVB, but struggled with injuries and inconsistency for much of his sophomore year with the club.

What could also make things interesting is Borussia Dortmund’s interest in signing Juventus centre-back Dean Huijsen. The report from BILD speculates that if the Italian giants are indeed interested in signing Karim Adeyemi, a swap deal could prove to be a conceivable solution for both clubs. Although BVB are on the verge of signing Waldemar Anton, and it is unclear whether they would want to bring in another defender.
