Liverpool and Chelsea have finally reached an agreement over how much the Reds will pay for striker Dominic Solanke – 12 months after his move to Anfield.
Solanke joined the Merseysiders after running down his contract at Stamford Bridge, reports the Liverpool Echo.
However, the duo couldn’t agree on a compensation package for the England striker, with talks dragging on throughout the course of 2017-18.
Further discussions between the clubs has now resulted in the issue being resolved directly between Liverpool and Chelsea.
Liverpool are remaining tight-lipped over the price they have agreed to play for the 20-year-old.
The Reds had initially valued Solanke at around £3million with Chelsea demanding closer to £10million. Now a compromise has been achieved so there is no need for a tribunal.
A Liverpool spokesman told the ECHO: “The issue has been resolved between the clubs. We will have no further comment on the matter.”
Solanke, who won the Under-20 World Cup with England last summer, had been in the youth ranks at Chelsea since 2004 but made just one first-team appearance for the club.
He decided to move on as he felt his pathway was blocked at Stamford Bridge and he was attracted to Liverpool by Jurgen Klopp’s willingness to put his faith in youth.
Solanke enjoyed an impressive first season with the Reds. He made six starts and a further 21 substitute appearances.
His progress was recognised with a full England debut against Brazil and he ended his long wait for a Liverpool goal with an emphatic finish against Brighton on the final day of the Premier League campaign.
