Good Morning Fear The Wall

There has been a growing rumble of hype building around the young German striker playing for RB Salzburg, Karim Adeyemi. At only 19 years old, he has made waves for RB Salzburg, averaging 1.09 goals and assists per 90, having played over 2,000 minutes for the Austrian club. The hype around the young lad has gone into overdrive this season, however, having made his debut for Germany, coming on in the last 20 minutes against Armenia, and grabbing a goal. To add to the excitement, he has also managed two goals in two games in the Champions League so far this season.

So it should come as no surprise that Adeyemi has been linked to a whole host of top clubs across Europe, including Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, and RB Leipzig. Sky Sports are reporting that all three clubs have contacted Adeyemi’s team, and it is thought that he will cost around €30 - €40m. While there is also interest from the Premier League, there is some indication that his next move is likely to be to Germany.

Kobel & Meunier Withdrawn from National Teams

The international break represents an exciting time where fans get to watch their favorite players leave to go play for teams they don’t care about, and pray that this doesn’t lead to them picking up injuries. Well, the good news is that that won’t be possible for Gregor Kobel and Thomas Meunier... Because they picked up injuries before they even got the chance to play for Switzerland and Belgium.

Gregor Kobel’s injury apparently isn’t serious, and there is no suggestion that he won’t be able to play in BVB’s next game against Mainz. However, he has been withdrawn as a precaution.

As to Thomas Meunier, it’s not clear what has happened, but the Red Devils put out this cryptic tweet. Perhaps he’s had enough. He packed his stuff up and left.

It is most likely related to the injury that Meunier seemed to be carrying in the Augsburg game, and which he seemed to aggravate in the second half, forcing him to be subbed off. Hopefully it’s nothing serious, because Meunier has improved massively so far this season.

Would Karim Adeyemi be the perfect replacement for Haaland this summer, if Haaland leaves?
