Brendan Rodgers will hope to put Champions League disappointment far out of the minds of supporters and focusing on bringing silverware back to Celtic Park once again.
With the Scottish Premiership and Europa League now their main priorities this season, Rodgers must look to delve into the transfer market early in January, mainly to spend wisely some of the money brought in by selling Moussa Dembele.
As good a deal as it was to get rid of the French forward, the Hoops need to bring in a striker who could be their goalscoring source alongside the likes of Griffiths and Edouard and that could be Liverpool’s Dominic Solanke.
Solanke, (who is valued at £9 million on Transfermarkt) came from Chelsea to Liverpool and many were excited about this deal, having seen what Solanke had been like prior with the Chelsea reserves. After only scoring two goals in 30 appearances however, his time at Liverpool hasn’t quite been as successful as many thought it would be.
Few teams will be willing to risk a young forward especially in the Premier League but up in Scotland and alongside a manager who has made that transition from Liverpool to Celtic in Brendan Rodgers, Dominic Solanke could re-invent himself as the top young striker he always promised to be.
With great height and physical power, Solanke is good in the air as well as with the ball at his feet. The Hoops don’t have an option like him currently and if he was to be available on a loan deal to recover his form, that could be an agreement perfect for both parties.
