LaLiga giants Real Madrid could be making a second signing from Borussia Dortmund as they eye a move for German forward Karim Adeyemi

Real Madrid are rumoured to be in the hunt for Borussia Dortmund starlet Karim Adeyemi after completing a move for another BVB star, Jude Bellingham, this week.

Real Madrid eye Adeyemi move

Real Madrid are in the market for forwards after losing Karim Benzema, Mariano Diaz, Eden Hazard, and Marco Asensio this summer and could be on the lookout for the talented German forward to boost their ranks ahead of the 2022/23 season.

Los Blancos also have their sights set on Spain international record-breaker Joselu, who starred for Espanyol in LaLiga last season but could be tempted to forego that option in favour of a longer-term solution in Adeyemi, who is 21 years old, while Joselu is 33.

The interest in Adeyemi comes just days after Real Madrid unveiled their latest signing from Dortmund, English midfielder Jude Bellingham, who will no doubt give Los Blancos the inside scoop on one of his former teammates.

German newspaper BILD reports that a deal for Adeyemi so soon after the Bellingham signing could be a real possibility as the clubs are on good terms with one another, which could make a deal for the German youngster easy.

Adeyemi impressed with Borussia Dortmund in the 2022/23 season, as they came within 90 minutes of claiming a first Bundesliga title in almost a decade.

The German forward scored six goals and assisted six more in 20 Bundesliga starts helping Dortmund to the brink of glory before they eventually threw away the title on the last day of the season against Mainz.

Adeyemi can play anywhere across the frontline and would be a great addition to the Real Madrid team which currently lacks depth in all forward positions.
