Report: 'The new Alexis Sanchez' is looking at houses in England amid Arsenal links

Reported Arsenal target Manor Solomon is looking at houses in England, according to Sport5.

The Gunners were originally linked with the Shakhtar Donetsk forward in January.

Agent Shlomy Ben Ezra told YomPod (as quoted by ZRAFC) that the chances of his client signing for Arsenal in January were “50:50, you never know”.

He added that Solomon would prefer a move in the summer and that “we won’t say no to AFC”.

Celtic fans left short-changed by Sky Sports once again

Now, Sport5 has reported that negotiations between Arsenal and Shakhtar over the 21-year-old are in “full swing”.

Indeed, Solomon has apparently started looking at residential options in England.

Talks between club and player apparently involve Pini Zahavi, who is in touch with Arsenal technical director Edu.

Zahavi apparently offered Solomon to Raul Sanllehi in May 2020 before the Spaniard left the club.

Sanllehi’s departure initially scuppered the deal, according to football.london.

However, Solomon’s displays for club and country this season seem to have put him back on Arsenal’s radar.

Impressive season

Solomon has become a key player for Shakhtar.

He impressed in the Champions League group stages this season before dropping down to the Europa League.

Solomon scored in both group stage matches against Real Madrid, while in the previous season he netted against Manchester City.

He also scored a brilliant winner for Israel in their Nations League win over Scotland.

This season, Solomon has made 35 appearances for Shakhtar, scoring 11 goals and claiming one assist.

Alexis Sanchez vibes

Solomon mostly plays on the left wing but has also been used on the opposite flank and at No.10.

His style of play is flair-based, a technically gifted player who has been compared to Eden Hazard and Pedro Neto.

Meanwhile, some fans have compared the reported Arsenal target to former Gunners star Alexis Sanchez.
