Dominic Solanke has reportedly "demanded" £50,000 per week to sign a new extended contract with Chelsea and the club now face a choice to cough up or lose him. I want to know, based on the problems we have had with our strike force over the last few years, if Chelsea should pay him the money and promote him to the first team squad from next season?

It's a difficult situation to manage because there is little doubts over his ability and natural talents to score goals. Last season, he bagged 40 goals in the Academy and proved that he needed to be tested at a much higher level which explains the move to Vitesse. At present, he has scored seven goals in twenty-four appearances.

I would imagine the club are hesitating in agreeing to his demands based on the fact that he has only featured for the first team as a late substitute without making a first team start. Why should they feel that they should be paying an 18-year old that amount of money? To put things into perspective here, it's what Tottenham are paying Harry Kane!

Described as one of the brightest talents in the game, Solanke has reached a point where he wants assurances from Chelsea of his future and he wants assurances that he WILL be involved at Stamford Bridge before he will sign anything.

This is where Arsenal are being reported to monitor the current situation and would be willing to offer the assurances he wants over in North London but NOT the money he is demanding!

Solanke file: 

2013-2014 - 20 goals in 25 games for the Under 18's - Jose Mourinho confirms will train with the first team 2014-2015

2014-2015 - Scores 41 goals in all competitions. 12 goals in 9 games in the UEFA Youth League

2015-2016 - Scores his first senior goal against Thailand All-Stars in our Pre-Season Tour
2015-2016 - Joins Vitesse on loan - To date scored 7 goals in 24 appearances. 

Do you think that Solanke is worth it? Is it time based on the record of our strikers generally in recent seasons, that someone like Solanke should be given the opportunity especially next season? Or, do you think that by demanding that ridiculous amounts of money (which is also being reported at over SEVEN times more than what he currently earns) could talk him out of a deal with any club?

I personally think we should offer him half of what he wants with assurances and incentives to do well, to kick on and if he is a success he will be rewarded. Let's have players here with motivation to do well!
