Rangers move for Solanke could finally kick-start forward's career
A switch to Rangers in January could finally kick-start the career of talented young Liverpool forward Dominic Solanke.
After choosing to make the move from Chelsea to Liverpool upon the expiration of his contract at Stamford Bridge, the England under-21 forward has failed to make much of an impression at Anfield.
Bagging only one goal for Liverpool so far on the last day of the 2017-18 season against Brighton, Solanke has done little to justify a compensation fee estimated to be anywhere between £3million and £10million.
Despite his goalscoring exploits in England’s youth teams, Solanke is unlikely to find consistent opportunities available for him at Liverpool, with Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge ahead of him in the pecking order.
The Englishman was also shunned for Divock Origi in Liverpool’s recent defeat to Red Star Belgrade, and youngster Rhian Brewster will be champing at the bit to get some first-team minutes under his belt when he returns from an ankle injury.
A move to Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side has been rumoured in recent weeks, and it could be a fantastic step forward for the former Chelsea man.
With the opportunity for regular football and the backing of incredible supporters, Solanke could thrive in the Scottish Premiership.
Whether it’s a loan move or a permanent switch, it’s certain that Solanke – like any young player looking to develop – will be looking for more game time over the coming months.
