Liverpool are reported to have agreed a deal to sign Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke, who is out of contract this summer.
The Reds have long been linked with the England U20 star – and the Liverpool Echo reports a deal for the striker has now been agreed with Solanke set to become Jurgen Klopp’s first signing of what promises to be a busy summer.
Solanke was also being courted by Arsenal, RB Leipzig and Celtic, but the player has decided on a move to Anfield as the club prepare for the 2017/18 season and a return to the Champions League.
Although Solanke is out of contract at Stamford Bridge, the fee for the 19-year-old will be decided by tribunal.
The Echo claims that the Reds are “expecting to pay around £3million” for Solanke, given he is yet to make the first-team breakthrough at Stamford Bridge and going on the £6.5million Liverpool were ordered to pay Burnley for Danny Ings in 2015.
Solanke is currently away with England at the Under-20s World Cup, but the move will be sealed upon his return.
The striker made his debut for Chelsea during the 2014/15 campaign, with his Champions League appearance that year making him the club’s youngest-ever player in the competition.
