Knowing that his chances to play for Chelsea next season would not, most probably, be better than those of last season (he made just one first-team appearance), it didn’t take him long to accept the Reds’ offer.
Every time I see Liverpool there’s such a family nature, there’s a lot of young players doing well at the club, so I think it will be a good place for me to develop my career
Dominic Solanke told LFC TV, a day after signing his contract at Liverpool.
As a young player you always want to see the club you’re at pushing young players through
the England international with the U20 team added, before talking about his excitement to play at Anfield.
It is an amazing stadium so I can’t wait to experience that. When you see it on TV you can get a bit of what the atmosphere’s like, but to actually be there… I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like
Solanke said. The 19-year-old striker already knows some of his new teammates.
I’m quite good friends with Joe Gomez – I’ve known him since we were young – and obviously Ovie [Ejaria] and Sheyi [Ojo] were with us at the U20 World Cup. We spoke a bit when we were away, so I’m looking forward to enjoying it with them
the new Liverpool signing said.
