‘Exceptional’ – Former Chelsea manager backs 23-year-old to join Tottenham

Avram Grant, the former Chelsea manager, has expressed confidence in Manor Solomon’s ability to make a significant impact at Tottenham Hotspur if the player, currently on loan at Fulham, switches Premier League clubs this summer, writes the HITC.

Despite a knee injury that kept Solomon out for most of the first half of the season and limited playing time afterwards, he had a notable run of five goals in five games.

As Solomon is set to become a free agent at the end of the year while playing for Shakhtar Donetsk, Tottenham Hotspur appears willing to take a chance on him, hoping to replicate and expand upon his impressive performance in Fulham’s colors during the spring.

“Solomon had an amazing season in England. He is an exceptional player. There are not many like him in England,” former Israel boss Grant, who guided Chelsea to the 2008 Champions League final, tells One.

“His dribbling ability is amazing. He has game intelligence.

“Today, Tottenham is a bit of a rotten team and if they build something good there, then it’s obviously a right decision for him because it’s a big club.

“He can play there. He proved this year that he can play in the English league, without any doubt.”

According to The Athletic, Tottenham is aiming to secure the signing of Solomon on a free transfer this summer, even though his contract with Shakhtar is technically valid until December. This is made possible by a FIFA ruling that permits players to depart from Ukrainian football due to the ongoing conflict with Russia. However, Shakhtar’s president, Sergei Palkin, has been adamant that Solomon will not be allowed to leave without a transfer fee.
