Barcelona Identify This Promising Striker As A Target: What Will He Add To Koeman’s Side?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Bild stated that Barcelona have identified Red Bull Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi as a target. However, it has been revealed that the Catalan giants could face competition from Liverpool and Bayern Munich in the race to sign the German forward.

Adeyemi’s Recent Rise In Austrian Football

The Munchen-born talent has made an incredible start to this campaign as he has already managed to bang in some important goals for the Austrian outfit before this international break. Adeyemi deserves a lot of praise for finding the back of the net seven times and grabbing one assist in nine matches for Salzburg this season across multiple competitions.

The 19-year-old has successfully established himself as the main centre-forward at the Red Bull Arena and seems to be growing in confidence with each game. Therefore, he could be a shrewd option for Barca to consider in January or at the end of this campaign.

Adeyemi has often been utilized as a central striker but he is also versatile enough to play as a winger out on the flanks if needed. However, the German whizkid is still quite raw and would need time before he can taste success at the highest level.

What Will Adeyemi Add To Ronald Koeman’s Team?

Adeyemi is blessed with electric pace which he can use to race in behind the opponent’s backline. The youngster is slowly developing himself into a prolific goal-getter in the final third but needs to work on chipping in with a few more assists so that he can play a more prominent role at Salzburg this season.

The German marksman has the potential to become a future star in European football, so Barca boss Ronald Koeman will do well to bring him to the Nou Camp in the future. Adeyemi will be a good signing for the Catalans in the long run as he ticks the right boxes in terms of what Koeman demands from his forwards.

The RB Salzburg whizkid could act as a decent cover to Memphis Depay, who has carried most of Barca’s goal-scoring workload this season. Koeman needs to build for the future if he wants to bring some success back to the Nou Camp. Signing Adeyemi will be a step in the right direction for the Spanish outfit as he will add a lot of pace and goals to their attack.
