Former European champion and English premier league side Liverpool has finally announced the capturing of Nigerian-born, Chelsea starlet Dominic Solanke.
The Merseyside giants announced through their website, Liverpool.com on Monday.
The 19 year old attacker who shone like a million star at last month’s FIFA U20 World Cup, was given jersey number 29 and is expected to quickly link up with the rest of the squad for preseason training.
According to the player: “It feels amazing and everyone has made me feel welcome already. Even just pulling on the training top, I was over the moon. Hopefully I can put on the shirt in the near future and make some good history here,” he stated.
Solanke netted 4 goals at the FIFA U20 World Cup recently concluded in South Korea to emerge tournament most valuable player.
