young starKarim Adeyemi
, who has proved himself as an important part of the club’s squad, has talked about his intentions for his future, insisting that he wants to follow the footsteps of the club’s former stars, who have joined big clubs.
Adeyemi had joined the Austrian side in 2018 with a €3million contract, and then he spend a season and a half at sister club Liefering before returning to Salzburg in 2020, and big clubs likeLiverpool
, andBorussia Dortmund
are said to be interested in signing the 19-year-old, and the player seems to be keen on a move to a major league, which means that he will probably move away soon.
Asked about Salzburg's impressive list of alumni, Adeyemi told Tuttosport:
"It's true, in recent years a lot of young players have matured in Salzburg and then landed at the best international clubs.
"I'm thinking of Erling Haaland, but also of Sadio Mane and Naby Keita of Liverpool, or Dominik Szoboszlai, who moved to RB Leipzig.
"Obviously, I also have this goal: I would like the next stage of my career to be at a top club."
He has also admitted to the club’s part in his improvements and his quality, insisting that Salzburg is a good place for young players to gain experience and improve.
"The experience at Unterhaching was very important, but for the first time I played at a really high level with Salzburg,"
"It's a fantastic club for young people like me. They throw you in right away and give you the chance to get to a high level quickly.
"Competing for the title of the Austrian championship is very helpful for the growth of a young person, it gives you experience.
"Equally important is the possibility of being protagonists in international competitions. This year we are in the group stage of the Champions League for the third season in a row, a fact that is far from obvious for a club in a small league like the Austrian one.
"In the Champions League we face the best teams and top players in the world: these experiences are priceless."
