Liverpool are interested in signing RB Salzburg forward Karim Adeyemi, according to Mundo Deportivo, as cited by Anfield Buzz’s Twitter account.

The report states that the Reds are in pole position to sign the 19-year-old. The story further adds that Liverpool will attempt to sign Adeyemi come January to cover Harvey Elliott.

The Englishman sustained a serious ankle against Leeds United at Elland Road last weekend.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

We don’t know exactly how long Elliott will be sitting on the sidelines for. However, expert surgeon Mike Hennessey has told the Daily Mail that the 18-year-old could be out of action for six months.

Therefore, it would make sense for the club to sign a forward come January.

Adeyemi is a promising player. The 19-year-old has scored 17 goals and registered 16 assists in 60 appearances for RB Salzburg.

Adeyemi would also be a long-term investment for the club due to his age. Only time will tell if the aforementioned report is true.
