Liverpool secured the signing of young center forward, Dominic Solanke, from Chelsea last year and now, the Reds have lured another youngster in the form of Isaac Christie-Davies after expiration of his contract with the Blues (Sky Sports News).
The 20-year-old starlet is a versatile talent, who can play anywhere in the center of the park (DM, CM, AM) and can effectively be deployed on either flank as well (LM, RM).
The Welsh international played together with Solanke for the Blues from the ages of 11 to 19 and like his former team-mate, he will hope to earn game time in Liverpool’s first team under the management of Jurgen Klopp.
20-year-old English striker Solanke made 21 appearances in the Premier League for the Merseysiders last season, scored 1 goal and provided 1 assist.
On the other hand, Christie-Davies featured in 15 league games for the U-23 Chelsea team in the last campaign, scored 1 goal and provided 2 assists.
In 2015 and 2016, he was part of the U18 Chelsea squads that won the FA Youth Cup. Moreover, he made 6 appearances for the U19 team that won the UEFA Youth League by beating PSG in the final in 2016.
Liverpool have already lured two quality midfielders this summer by hiring the services of Naby Keita and Fabinho. Klopp still needs to find a top star to replace Coutinho and he surely needs to improve the depth of his attack as well.
