Arsenal are among eight clubs that are looking at signing striker Dominic Solanke, according to the Daily Mail.

Liverpool were believed to be in the driving seat for the 19 year old but it seems they have turned their attentions to other targets. The other six clubs are Bayern Munich, Everton, Sunderland, West Ham, and Celtic.

With the exception of Bayern Munich, and perhaps and Everton, it seems unlikely that many will be able to match Solanke’s wage demands. The forward is believed to be demanding £50,000 a week despite playing just one first team match for Chelsea.

He came on as a second half substitute against Maribor in the Champions League back in 2014 but has not featured since then. The 19 year old has spent some time out on at Vitesse Arnhem. During the 2015/16 season, he featured 25 times in the Eredivisie, scoring seven goals and providing one assist.
