Reasons to distrust Adeyemi

Karim Adeyemi, a new talent in world football, burst onto the scene at the beginning of the season. At just 20 years old, the forward of the salzburg He made three goals and an assist in his first three games in Champions, although it did not help his team to qualify. Such an impact has led him to be chosen by the Dortmund to be the replacement for Haaland, as long as the Norwegian, as planned, leaves the club in the next summer market. However, there are a series of complications in the operation that make it difficult for the tip to arrive and a series of data that invite mistrust. In the last seven games of Austrian Bundesliga, the striker has only scored a bit. His figures are still good: 15 goals in 23 league games. But are they enough to consider that he will have an impact close to what he has had Haland? According to Artificial Intelligence (AI) Olocipthe striker is the tenth most convenient option for Dortmund to replace their top star.

Ahead, there are impossible names like harry kane, Lewandowski or Cristiano Ronaldobut also others of the same apparent difficulty of hiring: Lautaro, Tammy Abraham or, above all, Watkins, jonathan david and Gouiri. All those mentioned, always according to the AI, would fit better in Dortmund and would better replace Haland and the role it currently plays. But there is more. The CIES Football Observatory has published its weekly report of the best youngsters on the planet in the 32 European leagues. They study the total impact they have had based on the following characteristics: air defense, ground defense, recovery, distribution, creation of opportunities, high power and shooting. They had to meet only two requirements: be born in 2001 or later and have played at least 1,000 minutes until January. Adeyemi responds to these requests, but does not come off well.

According to CIES, the attacker occupies the 31st position in impact, behind players who presumably have a lower level such as Kubo, Nick Williams and more unknown men like Jan Thielman, Kotchap, Viti, Nouri or your partner Adamu. The study describes him as an “infiltrated shooter”, explained as a footballer whose role is based on receiving and shooting. In short, a ‘killer’, who falters in other fields. Dortmund was clear about it, but the statistics do not support hiring him.
