Deal Close: Liverpool to sign 'incredible' £8m striker who's 'like Ibrahimovic'. Deal confirmed to player's friends

Liverpool are reportedly close to sealing an early deal for a new striker.

According to The Mirror:

"Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke...has told friends he will join the Reds. Liverpool will be forced to pay a tribunal fee - which could be as high as £8m".

The Daily Mail adds:

"Chelsea have refused to meet Solanke's wage demands, with his representatives asking for a £50,000-a-week salary".

Fabulous - another pampered, entitled millenial with a grossly inflated sense of self-worth. Solanki is 19 - what exactly has he achieved in the game to warrant a £50k-a-week salary? Nothing is the answer.

The allegedly 'incredible' Solanke has made just ONE solitary first-team performance for Chelsea, and he's already seemingly believes that he's arrived, and is worth a massive salary. Obviously, he is mistaken, and Chelsea are right to reject his greedy salary demand.

All of which begs the question: Why are Liverpool interested? After the Raheem Sterling fiasco, the club should steer clear of players who are clearly motivated by money, Solanke is obviously more interested in money than development.

On a related note: Liverpool already have Origi, and several Academy strikers coming through, so what's the point in signing another teenager? If the Reds sign a striker, it should be he finished article, not another player who may or may not come good at some undetermined point in the future.

Thanks, but no thanks.
