Sky Germany reports that Borussia Dortmund and RB Salzburg have, after several rounds of talks, come to an agreement in principle over a potential transfer fee for German striker Karim Adeyemi.

At last check, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig sat in complete stalemate over a potential transfer for Karim Adeyemi. Sky Germany now reports that there has been a breakthrough in negotiations, with the two sides settling on a transfer fee of €35 million for the 20-year-old phenom.

Germany's Sky outfit takes care to emphasize that a transfer is by no means imminent. The two sides may actually remain far apart on bonus payments. Moreover, the striker's own contract with Dortmund has not been fully negotiated. A five-year-deal, inclusive multiple built-in exit clauses, is said to be on the table.

Dortmund's Ruhr Nachrichten reported in early March that RB Salzburg were seeking upwards of €45 million for Adeyemi. It thus seems reasonable to assume that, if the Sky report is true, the two sides have probably also made progress on the bonus structures as well. A €35 million base transfer would surely include at least €5-10 million in incentive payments.
