Italian outlet Calcio Mercato, as relayed via Sport Witness, claim that Manchester City have recently joined the race to sign Manor Solomon. Over the last two seasons, the Israel international made 43 appearances for Shakhtar Donetsk across all competitions.
Back in November 2019, Solomon also scored a crucial goal for the Ukrainian side when they faced Manchester City in the Champions League as the match ended in a draw. Last season, the winger scored six goals in 27 appearances.
The report claims that AS Roma have had their sights set on the youngster for a long time and are willing to pay €12m.
However, Shakhtar Donetsk want more than twice that amount. The Ukrainian club expects nothing less than €25m, claiming that ‘top European clubs’ are interested in signing the player. And it appears that Man City could be one of them.
There have been no concrete reports about Man City expressing their interest in the winger and a potential offer from the Premier League. Therefore, Man City’s name may be linked with the player in order to help justify the transfer fee while the Serie A side take a second look at their offer.
