Tottenham strike free agent deal for chief attacking target

Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur have reached a verbal agreement over the signing of a leading summer target, according to reports.

The player in question? Manor Solomon.

The name of wide-man Solomon, of course, has long taken its place front and centre in the media chatter in north London.

This comes after the 23-year-old was revealed as being firmly in the sights of Daniel Levy and co, amid Spurs’ ongoing pursuit of reinforcements in the attacking third.

For those not aware, Solomon spent this past season plying his trade in England, enjoying a fine stint with Fulham.

Amid a complicated situation with his Shakhtar Donetsk contract owing to rules put in place by FIFA surrounding Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, however, Tottenham are now ready to pounce, to snatch the Israeli international away from their capital rivals’ grasp.

A medical, in turn, has been pencilled in for some point over the coming week.

Shakhtar, for their part, are expected to lodge an appeal against the transfer, with Solomon’s terms in Donetsk technically still having a year to run.

FIFA, though, have thus far refused to budge on their extension of ‘Annex 7′ through the summer of 2024, meaning Spurs, as things stand, will be permitted to bring the talented winger in as a ‘free agent’.
