Last week, the England U-21 side recorded a 2-1 away victory over Italy, propelled by a double from Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke.
The youngster linked up superbly with Fulham phenom Ryan Sessegnon for the Three Lions’ first goal, and Fulham could replicate the fruitful international partnership by signing Solanke on loan in January.
Sessegnon received a measured through ball after a lovely run down the left wing, and after showing impressive pace to catch up to the pass, he delivered a succulent first-time lofted cross into the box.
The service found Solanke’s head after the Liverpool man’s purposeful jump, and the striker nodded home past the Italian goalkeeper.
In addition, Sessegnon also played a role in Solanke’s second strike, combining with Tom Davies on the left wing before Jay Dasilva delivered another cross that the forward swept into the back of the net.
The promising England U-21 team is full of burgeoning stars at club level, yet Solanke is currently starved of playing time at Anfield.
A loan move to southwest London to gain more consistent first-team minutes, as well as to link up with international teammate Ryan Sessegnon, would be a prudent switch for Dominic Solanke.
