Chelsea striker Solanke set to join Liverpool

One of Chelsea most promising talents, Dominic Solanke, is now set to join Liverpool, as Sky Sports UK revealed today.

Solanke’s Blues contract expires this summer but the club will still be due compensation for the 19-year-old, expected to be around £3m and decided by tribunal.

That a tribunal is involved means Chelsea offered Solanke an extension to the three-year deal he signed in September 2014 – his first professional contract – but the youngster turned it down.

Solanke hasn’t made a single appearance in the first team in this title winning campaign and only played five games in Chelsea U23 team, scoring 2 goals.

The English forward returned last summer after a season-long-loan to Vitesse Arnhem, where he scored 7 goals in 25 appearances.
