HYS: Would Middlesbrough have benefitted from signing Solanke?

Middlesbrough lost some key players in the summer transfer window, but it has not affected them negatively as the team are currently second in the Championship table.

Tony Pulis’s side have won four and drawn two of their six matches since the season kicked off.

It has since emerged that the club missed out on signing a Premier League striker in the summer.

According to The London Evening Standard, Boro were among a handful of clubs who had loan offers rejected by Liverpool for Dominic Solanke.

The report claims that Anfield bosses felt that the best place for the young striker was to continue his development at the club.

The 21-year-old, who is valued at £9m by Transfermarkt, can play either up front on his own or in wide areas, which gives him versatility that plenty of clubs would be happy to have.

Following the departure of Patrick Bamford, Boro could have done with a new attacking target, but was Solanke the answer?
