Solanke wants to leave Chelsea - Conte

Solanke wants to leave Chelsea - Conte

Nevertheless, the Blues have failed to agree personal terms with the 19-year-old attacker.

"Solanke for now is a Chelsea player".

However, due to the player's age, Liverpool will have to pay compensation for the England youth global, and reports suggests a fee of around £8million could see the deal go through.

Liverpool could be a good place for Solanke to thrive given their setup and manager Jurgen Klopp's willingness to promote youth, but he is likely going to have to lower his wage demands if he is to earn a move anywhere.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte insists talks regarding a new contract for Diego Costa should be shelved until the end of the season.

When asked about Solanke's future in west London, Conte said: 'I don't know [about his future] I should have a crystal ball to tell you about his future.

"For now it seems to be his will and this question is for him to answer; Chelsea are a great club for young players to be in". He is a Chelsea player, but I do not know his future. The striker has scored goals for fun at every youth level, and has always been tipped as the next player to break into the first team.

"I have spoken with him to try to understand his will".

'His contract expires in June and he has the full will to stay in Chelsea or to go away'.
