Borussia Dortmund have announced the signing of Karim Adeyemi from RB Salzburg for a reported €38m plus bonuses, becoming BVB’s record transfer.
The 20-year-old forward has signed a five-year contract with the Bundesliga side until 2027.
“Karim Adeyemi is a highly talented, young German international who through his strong finishing and incredible pace will make a valuable addition to our attacking play,” said Sporting Director Michael Zorc. “After the transfers of Niklas Süle and Nico Schlotterbeck, we are getting another very exciting player for next season with Karim Adeyemi.
“What is more, he is someone who has a strong affinity for BVB, who supported the Black & Yellows as a youngster and who decided to sign for Borussia Dortmund amidst several offers from Europe’s top leagues.”
Borussia Dortmund fended off the likes of Premier League side Manchester United to sign Adeyemi, who always stated his intention to join Die Schwarzgelben despite interest elsewhere.
The Germany international is not seen as a replacement for Erling Haaland.
