‘Dominate football with this signing’: Some Chelsea fans excited after transfer rumour they've heard

Chelsea are being linked with one of Europe’s most in-form strikers – and some Blues fans on Twitter are extremely excited by the transfer rumour.

Calciomercato reports that Chelsea are interested in trying to sign Karim Adeyemi from Austrian champions RB Salzburg. 

It is understood that Thomas Tuchel’s side have already made contact with representatives of the 19-year-old, who’s also on the radar of Inter Milan.

The report states that Salzburg could look to cash in on him next summer. 

Adeyemi’s reputation is growing across European football due to his form in front of goal.

The German teenager has 15 goals in 22 appearances across all competitions this season, including three goals in the Champions League group stages during matches against Lille and Wolfsburg.

Chelsea fans love Adeyemi speculation

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media are over the moon with links to Salzburg’s centre-forward. 

The left-footed striker is receiving obvious comparisons to Erling Haaland, who was previously a big success in Austria with Salzburg. 

It would be fair to question the strength of the Austrian domestic league, which is where the youngster has scored most of his goals this season. However, he’s a senior Germany international netting goals in the Champions League, too. 

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea spent big on frontman Romelu Lukaku in the summer to reinforce the attack. He’s scored just four goals in 11 appearances so far.

Here are some Chelsea fans discussing Adeyemi:


Blues already own some of world’s best youngsters

Adeyemi is an emerging player that some may put in the category of one of the brightest youngsters in the game right now.

For Chelsea, they already have some of the very best stars at a young age.

Reece James, 21, is a brilliant full-back that is mature beyond his years. Blues legend John Terry was has recently been raving about him.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, who only turned 21 this month, is another brilliant rising star at Stamford Bridge. The attacker was hailed by Rio Ferdinand after a recent Champions League display.
