Germany enjoyed a fine evening against Armenia over the weekend as they coasted to a comfortable 6-0 victory. There were multiple star performers for Germany, but the headlines were stolen by young Karim Adeyemi as he came off the bench to score his first goal for the senior team. The young forward is also attracting interest from Bayern Munich.

According to Bild, Adeyemi is on the radar of Die Roten. There are no more details about the possible transfer in this report, but Rekordmeister will be facing competition from Liverpool and Barcelona for the young forward from Red Bull Salzburg.

Adeyemi had a spell of two years in Bavaria before moving to SpVgg Unterhaching. The teenager has been steadily developing at Red Bull Salzburg in the past few years, which also included a productive loan move to FC Liefering. The 18-year-old forward has started the new campaign brilliantly for RB Salzburg with seven goals in eight appearances. (Stats courtesy: Whoscored)

The call-up to the German national team is a testament to his growth at the club level. Adeyemi is expected to grab more headlines going forward due to his talent, so it is not surprising to see Die Roten interested in bringing the player back to Bavaria.

More from Bayern Strikes

Adeyemi can play anywhere across the front three, giving a lot of tactical flexibility to the team. Die Roten did look at bringing another wide player this summer but eventually decided to add only Marcel Sabitzer to the squad in the final week of the transfer window.

The German international could provide more depth in the wide areas if Rekordmeister decides to bring him in next summer. Moreover, the future of Kingsley Coman remains a cause of concern for the German Champions. If the French winger ends up leaving next summer, then signing someone like Adeyemi becomes even more pivotal. Salzburg is in a position of strength to demand a decent fee since the youngster’s contract expires in 2024.

From Adeyemi’s perspective, he needs to make sure that adequate game time is guaranteed in his next move. He is currently playing more frequently at Salzburg, but a move to Rekordmeister may decrease the playing time a bit due to the quality of wide players at the club.

The development of Jamal Musiala at Die Roten should encourage him to move back to Bavaria. Other top European clubs are likely to make strong pitches for him, but Die Roten’s history of developing young German talent should make them favourites for his signature.
