In a recent report, The Daily Mail stated that Real Madrid are showing interest in Borussia Dortmund winger Karim Adeyemi. It has been claimed that Los Blancos are eyeing a move to acquire the services of the German wide player this summer.
Adeyemi’s Impressive Form In German Football This Season
Adeyemi enjoyed a decent campaign at Signal Iduna Park which ended in disappointment as he failed to help Dortmund secure the Bundesliga title. The German prospect banged in nine goals and grabbed six assists in 32 matches for the German outfit this season across all fronts.
The Munchen-born talent was a reliable performer in the final third as he averaged 1.6 shots, 1.2 key passes and 1.4 dribbles per 90 minutes in Bundesliga. He was even tidy with his ball distribution after making 77.2% of his attempted passes in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).
Adeyemi is under contract at the German club until the summer of 2027. Thus, Los Blancos will have to launch a convincing offer if they want to recruit the German wing wizard in this off-season.
Is Adeyemi A Dream Option For Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti?
Adeyemi can use his quickness to make life difficult for his marker in the final third. He can strike the ball with power and accuracy from long range. The German talent can also orchestrate a few promising chances for his teammates from the wide areas and remains a decent dribbler with the ball. He is primarily a left-sided wide player but can also play on the right flank or as a centre-forward up top if required.
Someone with Adeyemi’s skillset and potential would no doubt be a great signing for Los Blancos this summer. We can expect him to serve as an ideal replacement for Eden Hazard at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in the long run.
Adeyemi would enhance the quality of Carlo Ancelotti’s frontline and could help the Madrid giants compete for some major trophies over the next decade. At 21, he has the potential to become a generational talent in the future which makes him a dream option for Real Madrid to consider this summer. However, only time will tell whether Adeyemi can make a smooth transition to life in La Liga.
