Jurgen Klopp seems to be satisfied with Solanke’s efforts in training, and following his strong performances for England’s Under-21 team, the Englishman may at last be offered the opportunity to stake a claim for a starting spot at Anfield.
The Daily Mail claim that despite Liverpool’s interest in the 20-year-old Jovic – who is currently out on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt and is the Bundesliga’s top scorer with nine league goals – they may prefer to use players currently at the squad to bolster their attack, ahead of dipping into the transfer market this January.
Although Solanke has struggled for game time with his club of late, he has impressed greatly for the England Under-21s – most recently netting a double against Denmark, which included an audacious backheel.
Solanke’s chances may be enhanced further as Liverpool await the findings of an FA investigation into an alleged breach of betting regulations by Daniel Sturridge. A ban is possible for the former Chelsea star, and with Sturridge also out of contract in the summer, the door could be swinging further and further open for Solanke to waltz through.
