Adeyemi opened his international account with a goal against Armenia in a World Cup qualifier last September.

He has netted 16 goals in the Austrian Bundesliga in just 24 appearances so far this campaign, so it is clear why some of Europe’s heavyweights are running the rule over the talented star.

It has been reported a fee in the region of £35million would be enough to secure the services of the Munich-born forward.

Uncertainty over the futures of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino means Klopp is already on the lookout for the next young superstar.

The Kop boss has previously done business with RB Salzburg, having brought Japan international Takumi Minamino to club in January 2020.
