England youth international of Nigerian descent, Dominic Solanke, is linked with a move away from Chelsea, new reports claim that Arsenal FC might hijack the young prospect.
According to reports, Arsenal is keeping tabs on the situation of Dominic Solanke and the North London side might make a fast move to sign a deal with the 19-year old.
However, Solanke who earns £7,000-a-week is assumed to want an increase in his current wages to £50,000, a demand Chelsea is not willing to offer.
ManagerAntonio Conte recently affirmed that Solanke is unlikely to be at Stamford Bridge come next season.
He said: ”I think [he will leave], I am not sure, but I think this is his will.
“I don’t know, I should have a crystal ball to tell his future, I wish for him and his family the best.
“I have spoken with him to try to understand his decision. It is normal. We must have a great respect for every decision.”
Solanke has only made one first-team appearance for Chelsea and spent last season on loan at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem.
