Chelsea and Liverpool have agreed a fee over the transfer of Dominic Solanke. No, you haven’t travelled back in time, this has only just been announced.
Solanke was once considered one of the most promising attacking players we had on our books. After getting a taste of first-team action in the Champions League under Jose Mourinho, the Englishman appeared hungry for more.
He subsequently joined Liverpool, where he was further starved of regular first-team football, though playing a more considering role in the squad than he did at Stamford Bridge.
Solanke scored just one goal in the entirety of last season, and that came on the final day of the season against Brighton, who had nothing to play for. One goal in 27 appearances is not a great return, perhaps we won’t live to rue his exit after all.
Either way, Goal report that Chelsea and Liverpool have finally reached an agreement over the transfer fee, without having to go to a tribunal. It’s not revealed how much The Reds paid for Solanke, but the report claims that Chelsea wanted around £10M.
