Borussia Dortmund star Karim Adeyemi finds himself a man in demand this summer with Liverpool among the clubs reportedly interested in signing him.

Adeyemi, 22, has been with Dortmund for the last two seasons and caught the eye of Jude Bellingham in his first campaign. The England international completed a move to Real Madrid last summer but sung the praises of Adeyemi.

The German's spell at Dortmund since his 2022 transition has been marred by injuries and patchy form, yielding only five goals in 34 appearances this season, with just 10 Bundesliga starts.

Nonetheless, he retains interest from the Premier League with Chelsea apparently keen on luring him away from Germany. BILD claims that Chelsea chiefs are in talks with Adeyemi, eyeing to tempt him to England.

But a new report from Sky Germany claims that Liverpool is also in the mix for the forward, alongside Juventus and AC Milan. It is reported that Dortmund will not settle for anything under $32m (£25m/€30m)

Adeyemi may not have hit his stride entirely at the German club, but glimpses of his exceptional talent clearly made an impression on Bellingham during their shared stint there. The England midfielder didn't hold back in his commendations following Adeyemi's stunner against Chelsea in the Champions League back in February 2023.

"We are really confident when he gets the ball one on one. Not many players can stop him," Bellingham revealed to BT Sport. "He had a tough time coming here at the start - finding his feet - and now he's flying."

Adeyemi didn't make Germany's squad for the Euros but Bellingham has played a pivotal role and scored twice for England en-route to the semi-finals, where they're set to clash with the Netherlands on Wednesday (July 10).
