Adeyemi only notched five goals and two assists in all competitions last season, although he did impress during Dortmund’s run to the Champions League final.

Juventus are also interested in signing the German this summer as they look to back new boss Thiago Motta in the market.

The Turin outfit have already purchased Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz, but their hopes of signing Riccardo Calafiori have been crushed by news that he is set to join Arsenal.

In addition to Adeyemi, Chelsea have also been linked with a move for Stade Rennais’ Desire Doue following their failure to sign Crystal Palace star Michael Olise.

The Blues have signed Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Omari Kellyman, Marc Guiu and Tosin Adarabioyo so far this summer, while Estevao Willian will join the club in 2025.

Chelsea to help Jadon Sancho leave Man Utd?

Chelsea’s move for Adeyemi could inadvertently help Manchester United in their bid to sell Jadon Sancho this summer.

The 24-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund and the Bundesliga club are one of the leading contenders to sign him on a permanent deal.

Dortmund are unable to match Man Utd’s asking price at current, but selling Adeyemi could free up the funds necessary to sign Sancho this summer.

The ex-England international scored three goals and provided three assists in 21 games for Dortmund last campaign, while his Estimated Transfer Value (ETV) now stands at €41.5m.
