Tottenham signing Fulham’s right winger is smart business to boost Postecoglou team

Tottenham’s acquisition of Manor Solomon on a long-term contract appears to be another astute move, addressing a gap in their squad with the talented free agent, reports the Evening Standard. While Solomon had limited opportunities at Fulham last season, starting only four Premier League matches, he has demonstrated his ability to make an impact at this level as a substitute. During his loan spell from Shakhtar Donetsk, he scored in five consecutive matches, three of which came off the bench, in February and March.

At first, the 23-year-old is unlikely to challenge for a spot in Ange Postecoglou’s starting lineup. However, his versatility across the front three positions will provide healthy competition, particularly on the left wing, where he featured under Marco Silva. Solomon’s strengths lie in his dribbling, ability to take on defenders, and quick passing, which align with Postecoglou’s vision of playing fast and entertaining football. Additionally, Solomon is also willing to contribute defensively.

Effectively replacing Lucas Moura in the squad, Solomon is expected to be an improvement over the Brazilian. Moura had notable performances, such as scoring in his final appearance against Leeds, but his inconsistent cameos, including a red card in the costly draw against Everton and a costly mistake in the 4-3 defeat to Liverpool, highlighted the need for an upgrade.
