RB Salzburg forward Karim Adeyemi is a man in form, and the 19-year-old is already attracting interest from many of Europe’s top sides.

The 19-year-old is currently the top scorer in the Austrian Bundesliga this season with 11 goals in just 13 league appearances. Adeyemi has also proven his impact on the big stage with four goals in the Champions League this campaign, including three in the group stage phase.

The left footer who is known for his buzzing speed also scored on his senior debut for Germany, and according to Calciomercato, Chelsea have already made contact with the teenager’s representatives.

Chelsea and Inter Milan are currently the two sides who have been strongly linked with a move for the 19-year-old. This isn’t the first time that Chelsea have been linked with the young forward, as the Blues were linked with the young striker in January under former boss Frank Lampard.

Explaining his reason for his decision not to switch clubs in January, Adeyemi told Sport1: “First of all, it is important to me that I play regularly.

“My focus is currently on the Austrian league. I am very happy that I have so much time here. I am fully focused on the task in Salzburg.

“I’m very happy that I can play here in Salzburg and that I get my minutes on a regular basis. Every moment on the pitch is precious.

“I want to play in a club where I feel comfortable. Of course I dream of a Champions League win. It would be great to play for a club that regularly competes to win the Champions League.

“But that’s not what I have in mind right now. For me it is important that I develop myself further in Salzburg.”
