Karim Adeyemi is apparently in discussions to sign with Chelsea, and Borussia Dortmund is reportedly prepared to let the winger go for a very low price. The Blues are reportedly in contact with the athlete to persuade him to travel to England and sign with the London club. Chelsea is now after the young talent since Dortmund is willing to let him go for a comparatively low price of €30 million.

According to Caught Offside, Adeyemi might receive a long-term contract offer from Chelsea, which would keep him at Stamford Bridge till 2030 or 2031. Raheem Sterling's future has also become a subject of curiosity due to his possible signing. If Adeyemi joins, Sterling's job at Chelsea may be in jeopardy due to interest from Saudi Arabia.

Adeyemi's impact for Borussia Dortmund has been evident since he joined from Red Bull Salzburg in 2022, despite his consistency. His goal total has somewhat decreased as a result of his shift from a primary striker to a broader role; in 66 games, he has scored 14 goals. Nevertheless, Adeyemi might provide Chelsea's offensive options a major boost. He is a desirable prospect due to his speed, technical proficiency, and versatility as a front line player.

According to Sky Germany, Chelsea is pushing quickly to finalize the transfer since Adeyemi is desired by a number of other teams, notably AC Milan and Juventus. Arne Slot is keeping an eye on things as well and might urge Liverpool to make a move to acquire the German football player.

Why would Karim Adeyemi reject Chelsea this summer?

There remains, nevertheless, a significant obstacle to the agreement. Although the Blues currently compete in the UEFA Europa Conference League, Adeyemi is hoping to play for a team that plays Champions League games. The story from the Daily Mail verifies yesterday's Bild report regarding the Premier League's interest in Adeyemi's talents.

Chelsea would be better off shelling out a lot of money to sign Nico Williams, a good prospect who the Blues are apparently interested in as well. Williams is a better all-around player and more productive than both Chelsea winger Mudryk and Adeyemi, despite his exorbitant wage demands. The winger for Athletic Bilbao is worth taking a chance.
