#2 Dominic Solanke

Solanke left Chelsea this past summer

Solanke was considered one of the brightest prospects in the Chelsea youth system. He shone for the England U-20s in the World Cup this year, scoring 3 goals in 4 games for the Young Lions and big things have been expected of the young striker.

However, the youngster was allowed to depart the club on a tribunal fee of £3 million to join Liverpool, a top 4 rival. Solanke failed to play a game for Chelsea in his time at the club which is reportedly the reason for his departure.

He has featured 4 times in the league already for Liverpool. At a time when both English players and strikers have skyrocketing values, Chelsea could come to regret the sale of this young talent.

Solanke also featured in a pivotal role in Chelsea's youth teams and shone in a loan spell at Vitesse Arnhem where he scored 7 goals in 21 appearances for the Dutch side.
