Blues teenager Solanke turns Red

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Teenage striker Do­minic Solanke signed for Liver­pool from Pre­mier League cham­pion Chelsea on Tues­day.

The 19-year-old for­ward scored four goals in Eng­land’s Un­der-20 cam­paign, which cul­mi­nated in vic­tory over Venezuela in June’s fi­nal to earn the coun­try its first global tro­phy since its se­nior team won the 1966 World Cup.

Solanke could cost the Reds around $3.8 mil­lion, ac­cord­ing to the BBC. How­ever, the fee will be de­cided by a tri­bunal be­cause Solanke is un­der 24 and, although his con­tract with the Blues has ex­pired, the Lon­don club is due a fee for nur­tur­ing his tal­ent.
