Tottenham considering move for Fulham loanee Manor Solomon

Tottenham considering move for Fulham loanee Manor Solomon

Tottenham Hotspur are considering a move for Fulham loanee Manor Solomon, according to The Athletic.

The 23-year-old has impressed since joining Fulham on a season-long loan from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer after suspending his contract with the Ukrainian side.

Solomon missed a huge chunk of the campaign through a knee injury but showed his quality on the left side of Marco Silva’s attack, racking up four goals despite starting just four of his 18 league appearances.

His impressive performances have pricked the interest of Tottenham, who are exploring a move after a FIFA ruling confirmed that he would be able to leave Shakhtar on a free transfer this summer.

Fulham are interested in signing Solomon on a permanent deal, but Spurs are in pole position to secure his signature if he chooses to leave Craven Cottage.

Solomon’s contract with Shakhtar expires in December, and the Israeli forward was due to return to Ukraine in the summer after his temporary stay in London.

However, FIFA has ruled that all foreign players based in Ukraine or Russia will be able to suspend their contracts again for a further year. 

FIFA’s verdict will see Solomon’s contract with the Ukrainian club lapse at the end of the year, allowing the winger to sign for a new club on a free transfer.

Solomon’s availability has alerted clubs across Europe, but Tottenham are currently leading the chase and are working on wrapping up a transfer.

The electrifying forward could be the first summer acquisition for Spurs, who are keen to reinforce their ranks after a difficult campaign.

They have failed to secure Champions League qualification and are likely to miss out on a European berth altogether, with the club sitting eighth in the Premier League, one point behind Aston Villa.

Tottenham will go head-to-head with Villa for a place in next season’s Europa Conference League when they take on Leeds United in their final league fixture.
