Roko Simic: Salzburg's €4m teenage striker linked with Real Madrid and Arsenal

 The 18-year-old, who is the son of a Croatia legend and has been likened to Dusan Vlahovic, has scored 15 goals for club and country already this term

The term 'elite striker factory' is thrown around when fans speak about Red Bull Salzburg, but there is no doubt that the Austrian champions do something right when it comes to developing No.9s.

Erling Haaland is, of course, the poster boy, but he is not the only centre forward who has thrived when wearing the red and white of Salzburg.

Patson Daka left for Leicester City in the summer of 2021 with a better than one-in-two record, and Karim Adeyemi looks set to be the next to fly the nest after scoring 15 goals in 22 games to start the season, drawing interest from the great and good of the European elite.
