Barcelona to rival Borussia Dortmund for German starlet Karim Adeyemi
Barcelona will fight for Adeyemi
Spanish behemoths Barcelona could be set to fight German giants Borussia Dortmund over Karim Adeyemi’s services, Sport1 say Patrick berger.
The German prodigy is a prime transfer target for the Westfalenstadion team, who have already submitted a 5-year contract offer with an annual financial envelope amounting to 5 million euros as Die Schwarzgelben strike a deal that would cost the club € 35million for any deal to go through.
Karim Adeyemi is a prime target for Barca. Xavi is a huge fan of the 19-year-old forward. The Spanish side is expected to make an offer this week: 5-year contract, costs 40 million euros. No loan agreement in winter ⛔️! #BVB only able to pay 35 million euros (supplements included) and a lower salary (5 million euros) – but still preferred … @ SPORT1

But Barcelona appear ready to melt and try to steal a march on the Ruhr Valley club and bring them to Catalonia on a full deal in January that would not include a loan clause with current club RB Salzburg as well as being able to offer a higher upfront payment as well as a better salary for the German prodigy.
New boss Xavi is said to be a huge fan of Adeyemi, whom he sees as a potential long-term piece of the puzzle at Camp Nou as his Barcelona regime kicks off.
The young nucleus takes shape at Camp Nou
Despite recent links with Edinson Cavani and Raheem Sterling, Barcelona are stepping up to establish an impressive young nucleus for the future at Camp Nou.
Past starlets such as Pedri, Gavi and formerly Ansu Fati, Barca can boast of having a number of under-23 players who are ready for long-term influences in Catalonia.
Of the current first-team roster under Xavi’s command, fourteen players are 23 or younger. Names like Yusuf Demir, Álex Collado, Riqui Puig, Nico González, Eric García, and Ronald Araújo sound true to this.
If Barcelona add Karim Adeyemi to their ranks in January or during the summer window, a new generation of success could be on the horizon for Barcelona’s youngsters under the guidance of a returning prodigal son.
