Liverpool Striker Set To Leave In January But Which Club Will He Choose?

2 Posted by - November 19, 2018 - News

Crystal Palace have been linked with a move for Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke over the last week or two but it now looks as though the Eagles may be facing real competition for his signature in January. 

Despite Jurgen Klopp being known as a big fan of the 21-year-old, he’s clearly mindful of the fact that the frontman will be given extremely limited first-team opportunities at Anfield between now and the end of the 2018–19 season, with a loan move elsewhere seen as the ideal scenario for him ahead of what is sure to be a pivotal summer. 

Given Solanke’s pedigree, it was no surprise to see both Palace and West Ham linked with moves for him but now, it looks as though Fulham and Huddersfield may both he throwing their hats into the ring too; meaning we’ll have to be our game if we are to convince the youngster that Selhurst Park is the best place for him. 

If anyone had started to forget about him, the brace he bagged in England U21s 2-1 win over Italy last Friday is bound to have brought him back into people’s thoughts, proving that despite a lack of opportunities in the North West, he’s still more than capable of taking chances that fall his way when they come along. It’s a sign of his quality that so many clubs are credited with an interest given his lack of first-team football but now, it all comes down to the choice he makes when January rolls around. 

One thing Palace do have in their favour over almost every other interested party is the promise of guaranteed first-team minutes, as a direct consequence of our ongoing crisis at the head of the side. 

Whilst Benteke is supposedly due back early on in the New Year, there’s no telling how the latter stages of his rehab will pan out, whilst Connor Wickham has been struggling to regain match fitness for over two years now. We’ve seen Jordan Ayew try and fail to flourish in the striker’s role whilst Alexander Sørloth still isn’t being trusted to start Premier League games by the gaffer. Taking all of that into consideration, you’d assume Solanke would be afforded rather a large amount of minutes throughout any time he spends with us, which at this stage of his development, would surely be welcome. 

We’ll keep an eye on it.

    Could be a great loan move, I think he’s sharp and hungry. Klopp hates us though. Could potentially go for him and Llorente.

    I would have preferred Origi, he looks more suited to our style and pace and from what I have seen of him on UTube he is pretty similar to style and pace of our Zaha if you don’t believe me utube him and see for yourself before you make ye verdict..!!I think he could be decent for us if we can get him, even on loan..
