Liverpool's Solanke Targeting More Goals After Scoring Once Last TermPublished: July 07, 2018
Dominic Solanke is keen to score more goals for Liverpool in the upcoming season after waiting until the final day of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign before finding the net for the first time in his professional career in England.
The former Chelsea youth team goalscoring sensation has been training at Melwood with other first-teamers ahead of Saturday's pre-season match against Chester.
Solanke celebrated his first goal in a Liverpool shirt in the 53rd minute of their 4-0 thrashing of Brighton & Hove on May 13 and ended the campaign with 27 first-team games under his belt.
''It’s always difficult when you haven’t got your first goal,'' Solanke said to Liverpool's official website.
''To get that was a relief. I’m happy I’ve got that now so I can build on that.''
Whilst on the books of Chelsea, Solanke spent the entirety of the 2015-2016 season on loan at Vitesse and netted 7 goals from 26 appearances for the Dutch club.
The 20-year-old made his senior debut for England against Brazil in November 2017 but remains eligible to represent Nigeria.
