Dominic Solanke looking to make history

Newboy Dominic Solanke is hoping he can help Liverpool make history and feels he has joined the perfect club to continue his development.

The 19-year-old left boyhood club Chelsea at the end of last season upon the expiration of his contract after making just a handful of senior appearances.

The forward has now linked up with Liverpool, who are priced at 12.00 to win the Premier League, for pre-season as he looks to force his way into Jurgen Klopp’s plans for the 2017-18 campaign.

Solanke did earn some senior experience during a season-long loan spell with Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem in 2015-16, which saw him feature 25 times, scoring seven goals.

The England under-20 international, who helped the junior national side lift the World Cup this summer, believes Liverpool is the right club for his development to continue and hopes he can play a part in creating some history.

Solanke told LFCTV GO: “There’s a lot of young players doing well at the club, so I think it will be a good place for me to develop my career.

“Even just pulling on the training top, I was over the moon. Hopefully I can put on the shirt in the near future and make some good history here.

“As a young player you always want to see the club you’re at pushing young players through.

“I didn’t really play much football last season so for me to get some minutes on the pitch and some game time (at the World Cup) was really good.”
