RB Salzburg president Harald Lürzer has admitted that Karim Adeyemi will probably leave the club at the end of the season.


The 19-year-old forward has been linked with some of Europe's biggest clubs, including Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool, Bayern München and Borussia Dortmund.

Speaking on the Bild podcast 'Bayern-Insider', Lürzer commented on the reported interest in his prized asset.

"We're aware that Karim will probably take the next step next summer," said Lürzer and added that Salzburg "don't want to put any obstacles in the way."

When asked if Salzburg have set an asking price for Adeyemi, Lürzer confirmed that the 19-year-old has no release clause, responding:

"We haven't made an estimate because we're not under any stress. He has a long-term contract."

Dortmund have been reported to be front runners to sign Adeyemi. Bayern, on the other hand, are said to be out of race.
