PL club think attacker will choose them despite Spurs links – Journalist reports

Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of Manor Solomon could be at an end, with journalist Neil Jones suggesting his future lies with Fulham.

Solomon joined Fulham on a season-long loan from Shakhtar Donetsk and was mightily impressive as Fulham secured a top-ten finish in their first season back in the top flight.

The Israeli attacker bagged five goals in 24 appearances (Transfermarkt) and often came up trumps as a game-changing super sub for Marco Silva’s men.

In light of Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, FIFA has ruled that players attached to clubs like Shakhtar Donetsk can leave the club for free this summer.

Tottenham have been linked with a move for the 23-year-old (The Sun) as they attempt to rebuild their squad after a dismal campaign.

Solomon expected to stay at Fulham

However, it appears Solomon may have already decided on his next steps and a move to North London is seemingly not on the cards.

According to journalist Neil Jones, Fulham expect Solomon will stay at Craven Cottage next season.

He told Football FanCast: “The interest in Manor Solomon is interesting.

“I know that Fulham anticipate him staying and have been hopeful that they would be able to extend his time at Craven Cottage. 

“It’s obviously quite complicated because of the manner of this transfer and how he ended up signing for Fulham in the first place.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It would make sense for Solomon to stick with Fulham after they gave him his chance in England and I would not be surprised to see him have an even bigger impact for them next season.

It’s a shame we may not be able to sign him, but I do think he would have been a fringe player for Spurs and we should not be too disappointed to miss out on him.

There are better options out there, albeit not necessarily on a free transfer.
