In a major development, BILD is reporting that Real Madrid have turned their focus towards Borussia Dortmund starlet Karim Adeyemi in order to reinforce their attacking line this summer.

Real Madrid have already raided Dortmund once this summer to sign Jude Bellingham in a €103 million deal. Now they have cast admiring glances towards yet another young talent at Signal Iduna Park in the form of Adeyemi.

The 21-year-old German international is a versatile attacker who can play across the frontline. He is coming on the back of a fairly decent season during which he scored nine goals and set up six more from 32 matches across all competitions, even though he had to battle injury issues.

Real Madrid have bid goodbye to four attackers this summer, with Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard, Marco Asensio, and Mariano Diaz all departing the club. It has left Carlo Ancelotti with only Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes as the senior attacking options.

Moves for Kylian Mbappe and Harry Kane have been talked about and there is a likelihood that one of the two will arrive. But, that would not be enough for the Merengues to replenish their depleted attacking resources.

The report states that the Spanish capital club wish to add more pace to their attacking line, leading to the interest in Adeyemi. It is claimed that Real Madrid have already held talks with the agents of the 21-year-old to explore the possibility of a summer transfer.

Dortmund value Adeyemi at around €80 million and it is unlikely that they will offer any discounts despite the good relationship between the two clubs.

Considering that Real Madrid abandoned their pursuit of Kai Havertz due to his €60 million price tag, it remains to be seen if they would be willing to splash €80 million to sign Adeyemi this summer.

In a recent report by Manu de Juan in AS, it has been revealed that Arda Guler is expected to play a significant role for Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid next season, despite ongoing rumours connecting him to Liverpool

Currently, Carlo Ancelotti has five key players listed on the club’s official website: Kylian Mbappe, Vinícius Jr, Rodrygo, Brahim Diaz, and Endrick. However, Guler is an additional player who is likely to make a substantial impact next season.

In fact, it is said that the Turkish teenager is set to be Ancelotti’s versatile player for the 2024-25 season. His adaptability is a major asset as he can play in various positions, including as a central or attacking midfielder, a right winger, or even as a forward. 

His recent performance in the European Championship highlighted his capabilities, where he scored one of the tournament’s standout goals. This versatility makes him a valuable addition to the squad.

Ancelotti has clear plans for Guler

Ancelotti has indicated in the past that he sees Guler’s primary role as a forward. However, the coach is not hesitant to use him in a midfield role when needed.

This flexibility will be crucial, especially with changes in the team’s lineup. With Toni Kroos having left and Aurelien Tchouameni expected to play more as a centre-back, there will be a need for additional midfield options.

Despite his potential, there are concerns about Guler’s physicality and his ability to cover extensive ground on the field. Ancelotti has acknowledged these limitations, noting that Guler needs to improve his defensive positioning and overall physical endurance. 

The coach has mentioned that Guler is already working on these areas, aiming to overcome these challenges.

Meanwhile, during one of the celebrations at Cibeles, Ancelotti hinted at Guler’s increased involvement in the upcoming season. He described Guler as a “very interesting boy,” suggesting that the young player will have more opportunities to showcase his skills. 

This implies that fans can expect to see a lot more of Guler in action, making him a player to watch closely in the next season.
