Liverpool forward Dominic Solanke has found life difficult at Merseyside after failing to earn any first-team minutes under Jurgen Klopp this season. The Reds have made a terrific start to their Premier League campaign and have still got their unbeaten streak intact following a well-deserved 3-0 win against Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon.
The English striker is still nowhere near Liverpool’s first-team set-up as he has fallen down the pecking order behind the likes of Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi. The 21-year-old is in dire need of going out on loan so that he can earn some first-team experience away from Merseyside which could help him make a breakthrough at Anfield in the coming years.
On a positive note, Solanke has been on fire for the England Under-21 team after scoring a hatful of goals for them over the past year which once again goes on to justify his incredible potential.
Here are three ideal loan destinations for the Reds prospect to consider during the winter transfer window.
The Eagles have had a rollercoaster of a season so far, but there is no denying their struggles in front of goal. Both Christian Benteke and Alexander Sorloth have been plagued with injuries recently while Jordan Ayew has not managed to score goals regularly during his time on the pitch. The duo of Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend are being played out of position as forwards by Roy Hodgson which has eased some of their attacking concerns for the time being.
However, a potential loan move for Solanke could bolster Hodgson’s frontline at Selhurst Park and help them avoid getting dragged into a relegation dogfight this term.
The German outfit has not been able to score goals regularly in the Bundesliga so Solanke could be a decent solution to their recent goal-scoring woes if they can convince their former manager, Jurgen Klopp to let the striker join them during the January transfer period.
The Spanish team has been one of the biggest underachievers in the La Liga this season. They have just scored 11 goals in 13 league matches which is just not good enough if they want to earn a top 4 finish at the end of this campaign. Hence, a loan move for Solanke could ease their attacking problems and add more competition for places within Marcelino García Toral’s squad.
