Real Madrid ‘are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund forward Karim Adeyemi’ this summer… but could be ‘delayed by the £68.4m asking price’ for the German international
- Real Madrid need a new striker after Karim Benzema left to join Al-Ittihad
- Borussia Dortmund striker Karim Adeyemi is of interest to the Spanish giants
- But the Bundesliga side will demand £68.4m for 21-year-old Adeyemi
Real Madrid are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund forward Karim Adeyemi, according to reports.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side are in desperate need of a new striker after Karim Benzema ended his 14-year spell in the Spanish capital to join Saudi club Al-Ittihad.
The La Liga giants are tracking Adeyemi with a view to making a move for him this summer, as reported Sport image.
However, Real will have to pay £68.4m if they want to sign the Germany international, who impressed in his first season for Dortmund.
The report says it’s difficult to see the 14 Champions League winners pay this fee as it might be too expensive for them.
Real Madrid reportedly interested in signing Borussia Dortmund striker Karim Adeyemi

A move to Real would see Adeyemi reunited with Jude Bellingham, who completed his move to the Bernabeu this week for £113million.
Adeyemi joined Borussia Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg last summer and has scored nine goals and six assists in 32 appearances in all competitions.
He was also capped by Germany four times, scoring one goal in the process.
The 21-year-old has four years left on his contract at Signal Iduna and Dortmund will want to keep him at the club.
Real are keen to strengthen in attack after losing Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard and Mariano Diaz so far this summer.
The Spanish giants are keen on Kylian Mbappe who has told PSG he has no intention of signing any new terms beyond 2024.
Real will be keen to fight on all fronts again next season after a disappointing campaign that saw them only win the Copa del Rey after losing the LaLiga title to Barcelona and knocked out of the Champions League by the eventual winners of Manchester City.
