Dominic Solanke's Crystal Palace arrival could spell the end of Jordan Ayew's ill-fated loan spell
Crystal Palace are favourites to sign Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke on loan in January, according to recent reports in the Guardian.
The reported arrival of Solanke would surely spell the end of Jordan Ayew’s ill-fated loan spell at Selhurst Park.
The Eagles currently have an unfortunate surplus of misfiring strikers. Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham have been afflicted by injuries, Alexander Sorloth is still struggling to adapt to English football, and Ayew has floundered during his time in SE25.
While the other three forwards are tied down to permanent deals, Roy Hodgson would find it easiest to offload the Swansea loanee in order to make room for Solanke next month.
In his 14 total appearances for the Eagles in all competitions, the Ghanian international has failed to score a solitary goal and has recorded just one assist.
Ayew’s attacking statistics make for grim reading, revealing there might be a reason the striker was a part of two relegation campaigns while at Aston Villa and Swansea.
With the prospect of signing Dominic Solanke, Liverpool’s promising England youth international, Crystal Palace appear set to make the straightforward decision of cutting Jordan Ayew’s season-long loan short.
