Manor Solomon agent reportedly in talks with Arsenal
The agent of Manor Solomon has reportedly been in touch with technical director Edu over a potential transfer to Arsenal.
Football London report that the Shakhtar Donetsk winger is open to a move to the Premier League, and the Gunners could be a potential destination.
A former Arsenal target for Sanllehi
Arsenal have been linked with Solomon before, who is valued by Shakhtar at £21m as per the report.
Solomon’s agent, Pini Zahavi, once offered the Israeli attacker to Arsenal to the Gunners’ former head of football Raul Sanllehi.
However, no deal was ever agreed on as the Spaniard left the club last year.
Lighting up both Ukraine and Europe
The 21-year-old attacker has had an electric season for Shakhtar. Once compared to Eden Hazard by the Guardian, Solomon hit 11 goals and registered one assist in all competitions for the Ukrainian club.
However, it is Solomon’s performances in Europe that have stood out this season.
The former Maccabi Petah Tikva star scored twice against Real Madrid as Shakhtar came close to progressing from a UEFA Champions League group consisting of the La Liga giants, Inter Milan and Borussia Monchengladbach.

And the 21-year-old attacker could be a smart signing for Arsenal given his impressive goal-scoring record last season.
11 goals from the wings is an impressive stat, even more so when you factor in that Solomon played both on the left and the right, as well as few games as an attacking midfielder as stats from Transfermarkt show.Embed from Getty Images
This attacking diversity could be a useful weapon for Arsenal. Who last season struggled immensely for goals and this summer could do with reinforcements who can aid with improving their scoring output. Something Solomon could offer the club and more.
