This week, the headlines have been for Patson Daka and his sensational poker with Leicester at Spartak, but he is not the only striker out of the Red Bull factory who has shone. Karim Adeyemi (January 18, 2002) has taken command after his departure from Salzburg, just like this one did when Erling Haaland left the energy team, and is using the Champions League as a springboard to stardom: with his goal against Wolfsburg, he already has 3 in as many days (12 goals in the overall count of the course). Something that has installed the madness, in key market, in Europe to take over the Munich.

Bayern Munich seems in pole position right now, with others like Dortmund, Liverpool, or Leipzig in the race, but Sky Sports Germany reveals the interest of three new contenders: Real Madrid, Atlético de Madrid and Inter. Especially noteworthy is the appearance of the white set, since he is also related to Benjamin Sesko (18 years old), Karim’s attack partner in Salzburg. While it fits into the policy of signing the best young talents on the football planet if they get within reach: Vinicius, Rodrygo, Kubo …

Thus, it seems that in the Paseo de la Castellana they avoid a new ‘Haaland case’. The price, at the moment, is around 30-40 million euros, similar to the 20 disbursed in his day by the forward borusser and very far from the amount that is being considered for next summer, when half of Europe will try to remove Erling from Signal Iduna Park, with Madrid itself, who will share a battle with PSG, Bayern or Manchester City, in addition to some outsider.

Who is Adeyemi?

We talk about a footballer whose characteristics have little to do with those of Haaland, unlike a much more similar Sesko. Yes indeed, no one can argue that they share an obsession: the goal. In the highest European competition he appeared in partnership with his electric shock against Sevilla. He did not score, but caused up to three penalties, one of them missing. Against Lille he removed the thorn with a double and against Wolfsburg we already say that he has wet again.

In total, their 12 goals and 2 assists in 17 games indicate that he participates in a goal every 87.8 minutes, although it is not its floor, but its ceiling that makes it a collector’s item. With Germany he has already debuted, marking the same day of his premiere against Armenia and is considered, along with Florian Wirtz and Youssoufa Moukoko as the leader of the next-gen from team.

Adeyemi, this season.

You have to polish it, things of the age. He must show more pause in decision-making, sometimes agitated by his devilish speed, as well as improve physically if he wants to settle in the elite. But He is used to finishing plays and defines quite correctly (Handling both legs with ease, even being left-handed, helps), something differential if we take into account that he is only 19 years old. He likes to like himself and that is why he is the one who generates the scoring chances.

Sadio Mané was the first face known to the Red Bull factory, then the jewel in the crown, Haaland and Daka, would arrive. Now, with Sesko to a lesser extent, it’s time Adeyemi. The successor of the successor of the successor. A loop that seems infinite in Salzburg and that, this time, Madrid, among others, hopes to hunt the piece before, in years to come, the figures in which the bid will move will be three figures.
