Liverpool now back in for 'fabulous' forward they've TWICE failed to sign

Liverpool have interest in signing a Champions League finalist from earlier this year - a player they tried to get back in 2022.

Sky Germany reporter Patrick Berger claims Liverpool are on a list of clubs interested in signing Karim Adeyemi this summer. The forward is available for the right price after two years at Borussia Dortmund.

"Many top clubs are monitoring the situation of Karim Adeyemi," he writes. "Borussia Dortmund is open to sell if a top offer comes in, as already reported.

"Chelsea, Liverpool, Milan and Juventus among the clubs interested. But nothing concrete so far. Adeyemi repositioning himself as he parted ways a few weeks ago with his manager. He is in talks with potential agencies."

The Reds were first interested in Adeyemi back in 2021. Bild, among others, had them in the race as clubs looked to pry him away from RB Salzburg.

The 'problem' was that Adeyemi put in some fantastic performances in the Champions League that year, earning 'fabulous' reviews. In September, the supposed price was £17m but that skyrocketed. Dortmund ended up paying almost double by May.

It remains to be seen how much Dortmund would want for Adeyemi this summer. Berger only describes the asking price as 'a top offer' - and that could be anything from getting their money back to doubling it.

Liverpool like Adeyemi

While Liverpool tried to sign Adeyemi in 2022, their interest goes back further. The Athletic claims they tried to get him in 2016, when Adeyemi was just a teenage prospect.

Nothing came of that, of course, but Liverpool certainly have all the information they'd want on the forward. The bigger question is what would they do with him?

Adeyemi plays form the left, typically, and the squad boasts several players in that position. We're just not sure that the value for money would be there, given that fact.

But let's see what Liverpool do. They clearly feel Adeyemi has talent and here's their chance to get him, finally.
