Chelsea reportedly failed with an attempt to sign German sensation Karim Adeyemi, who is now being linked with a move to Barcelona.

According to a report from the Express, Chelsea tried to sign German wonderkid Karim Adeyemi three years ago, but failed in their attempt to land the young striker, who is now a transfer target for Barcelona.

Adeyemi came through the youth ranks at TSV Forstenried München and spent a couple of years with the Bayern Munich academy, before returning to the former. Soon after, the young striker moved to the SpVgg Unterhaching youth setup where he spent six years between 2012 and 2018 before moving on to RB Salzburg.

And, it is at this time that Chelsea tried to sign Adeyemi, as revealed by Unterhaching’s chief Manfred Schwabl. It is claimed that the Blues even flew the then 16-year-old striker to London in order to hold talks, but a move never materialised. Instead, the youngster ended up signing for Salzburg.
