The London giants have stepped up their efforts to sign Manor Solomon in the summer transfer window. The PL heavyweights have offered €20m to secure the services of Israeli international, but Shakhtar Donetsk want to recoup a higher sum to offload him.
Manor is coming off a breakthrough 2020/21 season with Shakhtar Donetsk, having established himself as a pivotal footballer for the Ukrainian giants. Solomon raked in 35 games in all tournaments while amassing a respectable tally of 11 goals and an assist.
Heading into the summer transfer window, though, the 21-year-old winger appears ready to leave Shakhtar Donetsk, and he is keen on a switch to the PL. There is no shortage of interest in Solomon either, with the Gunners already in negotiations to sign him ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
Arsenal hold a long-standing interest in the Israeli forward, having attempted to secure his services in the winter transfer window while also being offered the opportunity to sign him twelve months ago. This summer, though, could be the Gunners best opportunity to secure the services of Solomon.
The interest in Manor makes a great deal of sense, considering Willian was sub-par in his maiden season at Arsenal and appears to be enduring a sharp decline. In addition, the veteran Brazilian winger has been linked with a potential summer exit as well and is keen on a shock come back to Chelsea.
The London giants, therefore, must sign a replacement, making Manor a viable target. The possible arrival of the young attacker ought to serve the Gunners well, adding to a young group that consists of the promising Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli in addition to the ever-improving Nicolas Pepe.
