Liverpool may have just taken the lead in the race to sign the breakthrough young star, who is already on Manchester United's radar. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have always been outstanding for Liverpool this season. The two outstanding strikers have continued from their last positions and have combined for up to 18 points so far.
It seems, however, that the “Reds” are still trying to create more depth up front and are now “looking at” Salzburg Republic striker Karim Adeemi, reports Sportzeuge, citing pages from the recent edition. Deutscher Verlag Kurier.
The report said a number of well-known European countries wanted to land Adeemi, but Liverpool had consistently been the young man's biggest fan "in recent weeks".
If Liverpool's interest in Adeemi is true, the report says the Merseyside club must act quickly, as Bayern Munich are also working on getting the striker back into their squad.
In fact, the "talks" between Bayern Munich and advisers Adeemi Thomas Solomon and Father Abbey at Säbener Strasse are said to have taken place last Saturday, October 16.
Other clubs following Adeemi include RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund, according to the report.
Moreover, it is expected to move quickly as Adeemi's transfer, which could cost around €30m to 40 m, is coming sooner rather than later.
The figures above would make Adeemi the most expensive player in Austrian league history, breaking Patson Dhaka's record move to Leicester City last summer. Manchester United is also mentioned as one of Adeemi's fans.
An earlier report said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's country may be planning a move for the 19-year-old. According to the report, the Red Devils may be able to correct the mistake they made by losing Borussia Dortmund star Erling Halland and strategically plotting an assassination attempt on Adeemi.
More interestingly, the report suggests that Adeemi and Everton striker Dominique Calvert-Levin are two young players Manchester United might consider as "ideal replacements" for aging strikers Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani.
Currently, Adeemi is one of the most sought after young stars in Austria. In his first full season for the senior national team at RB Salzburg last year, he scored an impressive nine goals in 10 games across all competitions. In the top spot, the striker has also made an incredible 11 assists to his name.
