Liverpool Sign 19-Year-Old Striker Dominic Solanke From Chelsea

Dominic Solanke completes Liverpool move after Chelsea deal ends

The Under-20 star for England who capped 4 stunners the U-20 World Cup has joined the reds from Chelsea which seems to be a huge setback for the Blues as they did not come to any terms on the youngster's contract.

'Every time I see Liverpool, there's such a family nature, there're a lot of young players doing well at the club, so I think it will be a good place for me to develop my career, ' said Solanke.

Solanke was a product of the Chelsea youth system, but despite showing bags of promise he only made one senior appearance, as a substitute in a Champions League match in the 14/15 campaign. "Anfield is an wonderful stadium so I can't wait to experience that", he told LFC TV. When you see it on TV you can get a bit of what the atmosphere's like, but to actually be there.

Chelsea are thought to have been pushing for towards £10 million although Solanke had not played for the club since making his first-team debut in October 2014, with the Reds hoping to pay nearer to £3 million. "Hopefully when I get my opportunity I can take it and help the team".




Solanke admitted that he is "quite versatile" to operate out wide or in the hole despite preferring to play up front.

"Even just pulling on the training top, I was over the moon".
