Dominic Solanke leaves Chelsea to sign with Liverpool
Liverpool have confirmed Chelsea youngster Dominic Solanke will join the club.
The 19-year-old striker is out of contract at Chelsea this summer and will move to Anfield on July 1.
Due to his age, Liverpool will have to pay Chelsea a compensation fee for their part in the player's development, possibly in the region of £2-3 million, which will be decided by a Premier League tribunal.
The teenager made just one senior appearance for the Blues in 2014 and enjoyed a successful spell out on loan at Vitesse Arnhem during the 2015-16 campaign, scoring seven goals in 25 appearances.
Solanke, who is currently in South Korea competing with England at the Under-20 World Cup, will become Liverpool's first confirmed signing of the summer.
Celtic and RB Leipzig had also been linked to a move for Solanke. Reports had said negotiations over his contract at Stamford Bridge faltered over his concerns about a lack of playing time.
Also on Tuesday, Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic completed his move to Bournemouth.
