According to a recent report by the Sun, Liverpool are ready to sanction a loan deal for Dominic Solanke during the January transfer window with a whole host of clubs such as West Ham United and Crystal Palace looking to snap him up to bolster their attack. It is believed that the Reds are keen on sending the English forward out on loan after he was not able to feature in any of the Reds’ matches so far this season.
Solanke’s Recent Misery At Merseyside
Solanke got a handful of games under his belt last season, but he failed to score goals consistently and has since fallen down the Anfield pecking order behind the likes of Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi. The 21-year-old’s only appearance for Liverpool this term was for the club’s Under-23 team in the Premier League 2, and he marked that occasion with a goal.
The lack of first-team opportunities could have a detrimental impact on his career as he needs to get more game time if he wants to fulfil his real potential. Hence, Solanke can opt to go out on loan during the winter transfer period in search of greener pastures.
What Can Solanke Do To Turn His Anfield Career Around?
Solanke is a well-rounded centre-forward who has scored goals for England at every youth level from Under-16 onwards. However, the Basingstoke born talent has failed to replicate the success of his youth career after stepping up at the highest level. He has only managed to become a sporadic option for Klopp.
At the mere age of 21, the former Chelsea wonderkid needs to play football more regularly if he wants to establish himself as a first-team regular at the red half of Merseyside someday. For now, Solanke needs to concentrate on improving his game and going out on loan in January could help him grow into a top-class centre-forward.
Does He Have A Future At Merseyside?
There is no doubt that the English striker has a promising career ahead of him in England and with a world-renowned manager like Klopp keeping a close eye on his development, he would be in good hands as long as he can improve his game on the pitch. Solanke could still have a bright future at Liverpool but only if he is willing to work hard for it.
