The Blaugrana's search for a new No. 9 goes on as the club seeks to bring in a striker one day worthy of replacing the Uruguayan forward.

Adeyemi is currently on loan from Red Bull Salzburg at FC Liefering in the second division of Austrian football, where he has spent the past two years.

The Munich-born forward has scored 11 goals and assisted a further eight strikes in 30 senior appearances for Liefering, a very healthy return for a player who only turns 18 next year.
