Liverpool summer signing tipped to make speedy Anfield exit with Premier League transfer in January

Posted by

Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke has been tipped to seal a transfer to Swansea City this January after his slow start at Anfield since joining from Chelsea in the summer.

The 20-year-old has barely featured for the Reds so far this season, making just seven Premier League appearances for the club, all as a substitute.

Solanke struggled to make a first-team breakthrough at Chelsea as well, so will no doubt be disappointed to have been overlooked by Jurgen Klopp so far at Liverpool.

The England international shone in pre-season but has not since kept his place in the side and Ladbrokes now say odds on him moving to Swansea in the winter are just 7/4, according to Wales Online.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: ‘Solanke is struggling to force his way into Jurgen Klopp’s first-team plans and with increased speculation surrounding his future, Tammy Abraham may well be set for a reunion with his old Chelsea pal at the Liberty.’

Liverpool may well feel they’d like to keep hold of Solanke for a little longer, with the youngster perhaps not yet viewed as being ready to play week in, week out for a club with top four ambitions.

Still, the player himself may not feel content with a super-sub role, as his development will already have been hindered by limited opportunities at Chelsea.

Based on the potential he’s shown when he has played, Solanke could prove a superb addition at Swansea in their fight for Premier League survival, particularly after they lost star striker Fernando Llorente to Tottenham in the summer.
