Palace want Solanke

Crystal Palace are interested in signing Liverpool’s Dominic Solanke on loan for the second half of the season, according to the Evening Standard.

Solanke is a product of Chelsea’s academy, but in the three years he spent as their player, he appeared only once in their shirt. He did, however, spend the 2015/16 season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, where he played 26 games and scored seven goals. Since moving to Liverpool in 2017, he scored a single goal in 27 appearances last season, and he’s yet to play in 2018/19, with Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi all preferred by manager Jurgen Klopp.

He won the 2017 U-20 World Cup with England and made his senior international debut in November the same year.

Palace, on the other hand, are struggling for goals this term, but their funds for signing new players are very limited. Their manager Roy Hodgson hopes that the good things they’ve done for the development of Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be enough to persuade both Liverpool and their 21-year-old striker to agree for him to move to Selhurst Park for the rest of the season.
