Liverpool transfer news: Dominic Solanke set to reject Brighton interest and join Crystal Palace on loan

Dominic Solanke is set for a loan move to Crystal Palace next month as he pursues first-team football.

Solanke has yet to play a single minute for Premier League leaders Liverpool this season and has only made the bench once, in the EFL Cup defeat to his former side Chelsea.

Dominic Solanke could be on his way to Crystal Palace

However, he has been prolific for England at Under-21 level, scoring four goals in two matches against Italy and Denmark in November.

A number of clubs, including Fulham, Huddersfield and Brighton have reportedly made enquiries about the 21-year-old, but according to the Guardian, it seems he will choose Roy Hodgson’s side.

Solanke played 27 times for the Reds last season and scored his first goal on the final day of the 17/18 league campaign, at Anfield against the Seagulls.

Solanke has been in form for England

He is currently sidelined with a muscle problem and was not in Jurgen Klopp’s plans for the visit of Arsenal.

When fit, the striker is behind Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi for a place on the Liverpool bench.

He is believed to have been put off a move to Brighton due to their system of only using one-striker which he feels could limit his chances behind Glenn Murray and Florin Andone.

Crystal Palace tend to play two up front and are in need of a striker, with Christian Benteke still injured and Connor Wickham only just back from a serious long-term knee injury, and Solanke is edging towards a switch to Selhurst Park.
