Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke looks set to make a loan move in January.

The England international is yet to feature in the Premier League so far this season and it looks like his best option to get regular football is by making a temporary switch elsewhere.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for the former Chelsea man as he scored for the England under-21 side against Italy this week – and the German revealed that he is considering allowing him to go out on loan.

“First of all it was brilliant.” he said.

“Not only Dom but if anyone saw the game against Italy. Wow! No-one should worry about the future of English football in that moment.

“This team could be the world’s best under-21 team ever if you think who could play from the first team like Trent [Alexander-Arnold], [Ben] Chilwell, Mason Mount is injured I think, [Marcus] Rashford. I don’t know.

“It is unbelievable, what a team that is. [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek could probably play as well.

“He is the striker in that team and he did really well. The situation here is a bit difficult but if Dom continues like he did so far then everything will be fine 100% but there is nothing to say about the short or long term.” he added.

Klopp was asked if he had plans to let Solanke go out on loan for the second-half of the campaign and he responded by saying that he wants to “help” the young forward.

“At the moment there is no alternative.” he continued.

“We will see, we will talk with the players first – they don’t have to watch boring press conferences to know what I think about them.

“We want to help Dom so he can help us and that is the target.” he finished.
