Nigerian-born England youth international, Dominic Solanke has received a strong word of advice for him to quit Liverpool in January, in order to get regular playing time elsewhere.
Footballlive.ng can report that the down-to-earth suggestion is coming from none less than a former Liverpool midfielder, Danny Murphy, who believes Solanke and Adam Lallana both need to leave Anfield.
Solanke has failed to cement a place in The Reds’ main frame since arriving from Chelsea early last season and, despite being part of England’s squad that won the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup, he is still rated below average.
However, with the January transfer window now approaching fast, Murphy has given Solanke a strong piece of wisdom to hold, as the ex-player feels both forwards should seek first team football elsewhere.
Murphy stressed: “Solanke may need to leave Liverpool if he is to progress.
“He needs to be playing football if he’s to improve, but he’s unlikely to get on the pitch at Liverpool.
“It would be a big decision to leave Liverpool because it’s one of the biggest clubs in the country, but it might be best for his career.
“He will probably look to go out on loan initially as I can’t see him jumping the queue ahead of Liverpool’s other options.”
