Shakhtar Donetsk’s man enters Arsenal’s radar

The Guardian is reporting that Arsenal is interested in signing Manor Solomon as he continues to impress for Shakhtar Donetsk.

The Israeli attacker has been developing well since he joined the Ukrainian giants in 2019 for just £5 million.

He scored twice against Real Madrid in the Champions League this season and also scored against Manchester City in the same competition last season.

Arsenal is looking to revitalise their ageing attack, and the 21-year-old has come to their attention.

The report says that the Gunners have already held initial talks about landing him.

However, the move will not happen this month because Mikel Arteta’s side cannot gather the money to complete it. This leaves him as a player that they might sign at the end of this season.

He can play across the front three, which makes him a handy addition to the current Arsenal side.

His versatility will make him unpredictable and provide Arteta with a player that can help the team from different attacking positions.

He has 3 goals in 10 league games this season, and 2 in the Champions League.

The Gunners have an abundance of talents in their attack, but some might be sold off at the end of the season to make room for him.

    seems like we can’t even afford good radar anymore

      You obviously haven’t seen him play as he is exceptional and has been under the radar.

        for your information I have watched him play for Shakhtar on numerous occasions in Champions League play both last year and this past fall…I thought he performed decently but my comment was more about why we’re looking for attacking left wingers, considering our present roster…he certainly would be a coin toss choice as a creative attacking midfielder, which is what I thought we were trying to focus on…that was the point of my radar dig…Cheers

    This guy is good, I’m tired of overrated players… Efficient and well scouted players who are hungry would do us more good

    Is he in our budget tho? Also, still prefer we look for targets that play in England, or are very established players. If he’s on the cheaper side I guess there isnt much risk tho.

    Like him, good player but i see another player in our squad in his mould. Martinelli isn’t far away from this guy except that Solomon appears more composed, perhaps it’s because the Ukrainian league is a bit lightweight. A traditional no. 9 i think would be good, Salzburg’s Patson Daka fits the profile for me. For flare i would pick Odson Edouard from Celtic, a good goal scorer but stamina wise, alot of question marks lead him.
