According to Football.London,Winger compared to Hazard fancies Arsenal move, Edu in talks with his agent, Shakhtar Donetsk ace Manor Solomon is interested in signing for Arsenal this summer, with Pini Zahavi playing a key role in a move.
It’s claimed that agent Zahavi actually offered Solomon to Arsenal last summer when Raul Sanllehi was at the club.
Sanllehi’s exit means a deal was shelved, but Zahavi is now thought to be speaking to Edu about rekindling a potential move to Arsenal.
Solomon is allegedly keen to make the move to North London, and would be ‘delighted’ to sign for Arsenal, but there is a long way to go before a deal can be done.
The 21-year-old wants a summer move rather than joining this month, as he wants to be on board for pre-season training instead of joining in the middle of the season.
Solomon has earned comparisons to ex-Chelsea star Eden Hazard thanks to his dribbling ability and low centre of gravity, predominantly playing as a left winger.
The Israeli international has bagged five goals and one assist in 17 games this season, and his versatility in the final third has to be appealing.
Solomon can play on either flank or as a number 10, meaning he can be brought into the side without stunting the development of Gabriel Martinelli, Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka.
Arsenal do need additional creativity now, but teeing up a summer deal for Solomon would be a fine start to the next window – if Edu can get a deal done with Zahavi.
