18-year-old has already been called up to the full Israel national team and is earning rave reviews playing in his homeland
LIVERPOOL are preparing to make a £4.5m move for the teenager knows as the “Jewel of Israel”.
Manor Solomon has been earning rave reviews playing for Maccabi Petah Tikva, and at the age of 18, has already been called up to the Israel national side.
And now Tuttotsport are reporting that Jurgen Klopp is preparing to bid for the teen sensation.
However, they could face competition from Italian giants Juventus, who are also keen on the midfielder.
Solomon made his debut for Maccabi Petah Tikva on November 26 last year.
But his first goal didn’t come until January this year when he netted in a 2-0 win against Bnei Yehuda.
He has played for his club side 29 times and has scored four goals.
But one player who is STILL being linked with a move away from Anfield is Philippe Coutinho.
SunSport reported how Barcelona believe they are close to finalising a deal for the Liverpool star in January, according to reports.
Mundo Deportivo report the Brazilian’s agent Kia Joorabchian will act as a conduit between the clubs and plans to meet with the Liverpool top brass within the next week to thrash out details of the big money switch.
Barca were desperate to land Coutinho in the summer to replace Neymar who joined Paris Saint-Germain.
Two huge bids were rebuffed with the highest of around £138million for the 25-year-old who was desperate to join the Catalan giants after four years in the Premier League.
Coutinho shook off his disappointment and recovered from his back injury to score four goals for Liverpool since his return to club football in mid-September.
Despite a fee being closed to being agreed, Barca could try and lower the price for Coutinho, as he will not be eligible to play in the Champions League after featuring in the Kop’s first three group games.
