Dominic Solanke news

Solanke felt he would have more chances to progress if he left Chelsea
Football Scout

Dominic Solanke has had a busy summer. Playing an important role in the England under-20 side that won the World Cup was followed by him making the move from Chelsea to Liverpool. Fans of the Anfield club have been impressed with what they have seen from the teenager so far, so could he go on to become a Liverpool great?

One of the most apparent attributes that Solanke possesses is his natural pace. He is able to knock the ball past defenders and retain possession with ease, which will stand him in good stead with Liverpool's fast paced attacking football. At over six feet tall, Solanke is also able to provide an aerial threat in the box. 

Whilst his preferred position is in a more advanced role, the youngster is also able to operate as an attacking midfielder. He has a good range of passing, having demonstrated on numerous occasions the vision and execution to play a through ball for his team mate into a dangerous area. 

Something that has been evident in both the under-20 World Cup and Liverpool's pre-season fixtures is that Solanke has a lot of self-belief in his ability. He has not been phased by the step up into Liverpool's first team which has so far allowed him to demonstrate what he is capable of. 

Whilst Solanke has not yet had the opportunity to test himself in the Premier League, he will have impressed Jurgen Klopp with his performances in his short time at Anfield. 

The former Chelsea attacker will not start the season as Liverpool's first choice striker, but having so much promise at such a young age, there is a lot to be excited about as a Liverpool and England fan when it comes to Dominic Solanke
