Good Afternoon (?) Fear The Wall
Welcome to the late, late edition of The Daily Bee. My day job had the audacity to expect me to do lots of work today, so I didn’t have a chance to get to this until now. Rest assured, I plan to quit in the most dramatic fashion tomorrow. Anyway, on to today’s BVB news.
Borussia Dortmund apparently remain the most likely destination for RB Salzburg’s Karim Adeyemi (who are currently playing Wolfsburg, if you’re interested in watching the BVB target).
#BVB still in pole-position to land Salzburg’s top talent Karim Adeyemi. Additionally there will be a meeting this week with the player representatives and RB Leipzig. Also in the race: Paris St. Germain. A decision is to be made this month! @SPORT1— Patrick Berger (@berger_pj) November 2, 2021
Piecing together the various reports on the subject of the young German’s future, it would seem that Adeyemi is not keen on Bayern Munich, because of concerns about lack of playing time, but BVB and RB Leipzig are both real possibilities. That is despite clubs from all over Europe (reports of varying credibility suggest PSG, Liverpool, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, and Atletico Madrid are all interested) keeping tabs on him. According to SPORT1, the decision is likely to be made by the end of the month.
According to SPORT1, a decision in the Adeyemi poker game should be made by the end of November so that the attacker can focus fully on his job at RB Salzburg, where he actually still has a contract until 2024.#BVB— BVB Newsblog (@bvbnewsblog) November 1, 2021
Marco Asensio to BVB?!
If you’d like some really leftfield rumors, how about Borussia Dortmund being the team in pole position to sign Marco Asensio from Real Madrid this winter?
Borussia Dortmund is among the interested parties for Marco Asensio of Real Madrid. The 25-year-old Spaniard is not satisfied with his current role. BVB is even said to be in pole position for a possible signing in the winter.— BVB Newsblog (@bvbnewsblog) November 2, 2021

I dunno. Sounds like nonsense to me. But maybe? I mean I wouldn’t say no? Must be a slow news day in Spain.
The Daily Buzz
What’s the best sports rumor you’ve ever heard? A friend of mine claimed that Frank de Boer was staying in a posh hotel near Southampton and was imminently going to be announced as the new Saints manager a few years back... I think it might have been when Mark Hughes ended up getting the job.
