The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are absolutely delighted with this…
After weeks of speculation, and in particular a day of heavy reporting, it looks like Liverpool are closing in on a summer deal. The Liverpool Echo reported it for much of Tuesday, leading to an eventual confirmation from the Reds that Chelsea forward Dominic Solanke is closing in on a move to Anfield – with the deal set to go through when the transfer window opens.
Solanke is a highly-rated youngster, having made his name both for Chelsea and with the English national side’s developmental teams, having garnered a reputation as one of Europe’s most deadly young finishers.
Interestingly, he rose to prominence alongside Tammy Abraham, who impressed in the Championship with Bristol City this season, with the pair striking a real partnership for the Chelsea.
This is certainly a big loss for Chelsea, given how highly-rated he is, though with the Blues rarely affording opportunities to young players anyway, it is tough to say that this deal will effect Conte’s long-term aspirations.
Unsurprisingly, the Liverpool fans in the Liverpool Subreddit on Reddit are delighted at the news, with many highlighting how much of a coup this is for the Reds. Indeed, many are touting him to get some game time next season.
