Dominic Solanke joined Premier League rivals Liverpool on a free transfer this summer and former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp believes Chelsea would regret his departure in future.
“There has been a lot of talk about Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic leaving but in the long term, Solanke’s departure could be the one Chelsea regret the most,” Redknapp wrote in Daily Mail.
“When I first met him two years ago he told me he models his game on Costa. He wants to be an aggressive centre forward and will be licking his lips at the chances Liverpool will create for him.
“He may not start many games early on, but as the season progresses he will have a big part to play. Don’t rule out an England call-up.”
