Breaking news: Chelsea Striker to quit Blues after contract talks stall
Chelsea are in danger of losing Dominic Solanke on a free transfer next summer after contract talks hit a stumbling block, according to reports.
The 19-year-old’s current deal expires at the end of the season and although negotiations have begun, The Sun claims there is a major disagreement over the striker’s desire to be sent out on loan.
Solanke is keen to leave Stamford Bridge on a temporary deal once again, having seen the likes of Tammy Abraham and Lewis Baker flourish this season.
The striker spent last season on loan at Vitesse, scoring seven goals in 26 appearances for the Dutch club, but Chelsea have stopped Solanke from leaving again, even though he hasn’t made a first-team appearance this term.
The report claims that Solanke is attracting interest from several Premier League clubs, while Chelsea would only be due compensation as he was trained through their academy.
