Super agent Pini Zahavi has contacted Arsenal technical director Edu about a summer 2021 deal for Shakhtar Donetsk winger Manor Solomon, a report has claimed.
Previous speculation has said that the Gunners are keen on a deal for the 21-year-old.
What’s more, Arsenal would soon open talks with the player’s representatives according to The Guardian‘s report.
Pini Zahavi, one of the most influential agents across Europe, has contacted Edu and is liaising with his client.
However, Zahavi is not Solomon’s usual representative. Indeed, the player is using the agent in a bid to increase his profile among Premier League clubs and potentially engineer a move to England.
As such, Solomon’s latest activity comes as an exception, with Israeli agents Shlomy Ben Ezra and Gilad Katsav his most common port of call for representation.
football.london also claims to reveal details of Solomon’s stance on a potential move to Arsenal.
A source close to the player has said that he would be “delighted” with a transfer to the north London club. However, they stressed that such a switch remains a distant possibility.
Arsenal previously had Solomon on their radar, before former head of football Raul Sanllehi featured dismissed the player.
But he has since reemerged as a target following impressive performances for Shakhtar of late. He has scored five goals in 17 appearances this season, including two in six Champions League games.
Solomon is also a fully-fledged international, having played 14 times for Israel and scoring one goal.
Goalkeeper opens up on Arsenal links
Meanwhile, QPR goalkeeper Seny Dieng has revealed his pride at supposed interest from Arsenal.
A report earlier this week suggested that he could earn a transfer to the Premier League.
Dieng has started 21 games in the Championship this season. He has kept five clean sheets and has only conceded more than two goals in two games.
