Real Madrid identify second Borussia Dortmund star as summer target

Carlo Ancelotti’s side are on the hunt for yet another German-based star

Spanish giants Real Madrid have identified yet another Borussia Dortmund star in the form of Karim Adeyemi as a summer transfer target, but will reportedly have to shell out £69m to sign him this summer.

Los Blancos have already signed Jude Bellingham from the German giants, paying over 100m euros to lure the English teenager to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer where he will take the no.5 shirt most famously worn by Zinedine Zidane.

But their summer business is not set to stop there, with a striker having shot up to the top of their priority list in the aftermath of Karim Benzema’s shock departure to Al Ittihad this summer, cutting short his time with the Spanish giants.

They have explored moves for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, Chelsea’s Kai Havertz and Napoli star Victor Osimhen, but have been priced out of moves for all three players, meaning that they are still on the hunt for a new no.9.

Now, as per German outlet SportsBild, Carlo Ancelotti’s side are tracking Borussia Dortmund striker Karim Adeyemi, who only joined the German side last summer but has impressed in spurts during his time with the Black and Yellow.

The 21-year-old scored six goals and grabbed six assists in 24 Bundesliga outings, and also managed to net in the Champions League knockout stages too.

Elsewhere, Los Blancos are on the verge of completing a move for experienced striker Joselu to replace their second choice option Mariano Diaz, who has left on a free transfer.
