Arsenal Transfer News: Manor Solomon, a winger for Shakhtar Donetsk who has excelled for Fulham after returning from injury, has drawn interest from Arsenal and Barcelona
Arsenal Transfer News: Fichajes claims that this summer Arsenal and Barcelona will compete for Manor Solomon. Fulham, the Premier League team where the winger is impressing on loan this season, may not have the chance to buy him permanently. In light of their financial woes, Barcelona is actively pursuing unusual transfers. The Catalan giants’ problems have been highlighted by the fact that they have received little media coverage in recent days despite the fact that they may be unable to make any deals during the summer transfer window.
As a result, Blaugrana might target a niche market for players who are either free agents or available at reduced costs. Hence, it’s possible that Barcelona won’t be able to afford long-term, pricey targets like Bernardo Silva or Khvicha Kvaratskhelia in the next window. They are still trying to strengthen their roster by negotiating with players like Wilfried Zaha and Sofyan Amrabat. As of late, Manor Solomon has been mentioned as a possible target. Barcelona may take advantage of his contract problems. With the money from the sale of stars like Ansu Fati, the Catalan giants may turn their position around.
Arsenal Transfer News: What’s the matter?
The current turmoil between Russia and Ukraine has worsened the circumstances for the Israel international with Shakhtar Donetsk. According to sources, he has been loaned to Premier League team Fulham, and the agreement does not contain a purchase option. Solomon has made an impressive return from a knee injury that forced him to miss a major portion of the season. Winger (23 years old) has scored in his past four games (all competitions), including three times in the league.
Although he continues to compete for a starting spot, his performance implies that his injury problems are in the past. It’s worth noting that Marco Silva has not favoured picking him first and foremost, but that might change. Fulham may come to regret not incorporating a purchase option if the 23-year-old maintains his current level of play.

As Solomon’s time with Shakhtar comes to an end in December 2023, other teams will want to make a bargain offer for the player. Mikel Arteta has stated the need for a winger in his Arsenal squad, prompting the club to express interest.
What’s next for Manor Solomon?
Even though Arteta added Leandro Trossard in January, he still thinks his team might benefit from having another wide attacker. There is no one to cover for Bukayo Saka as he plays on the right side of the attack by himself.
In the summer, Reiss Nelson might quit the team, creating a vacancy. Nevertheless, Arteta’s main issue this summer will be recruiting players to join the team and battle Saka for roster spots. The English national has been relatively unmovable over the last several seasons, and that tendency may continue.
The allure of staying in England may be too much for Solomon to resist. Yet, where he receives more playing time will ultimately influence his choice. If he continues to play regularly in Silva’s lineup between now and the end of the season, Fulham might potentially become a viable alternative.
