Atalanta offer €12m for Shakhtar winger Manor Solomon

Atalanta have had a €12m bid rejected by Shakhtar Donetsk for Israel winger Manor Solomon, according to Maariv.

Solomon, 21, was on the scoresheet for Shakhtar against Wolfsburg on Wednesday night after coming off the bench.

And his talents have caught the eye of Serie A side Atalanta, who want to sign the young attacker.

The Italians will have to improve their offer though, with Shakhtar turning down an initial €12m bid.

Other Italian teams as well as a club from Germany are also following Solomon, but his entourage confirmed that only Atalanta have made an official bid.

Shakhtar paid €6m last year to sign Solomon from Maccabi Petah Tikva after Benfica had seen a bid rejected.

Liverpool and Juventus had also showed interest in the talented Israeli, capped seven times by his national team.

The Ukrainian giants want a ‘much higher amount’ than the €12m offered by Atalanta with negotiations set to continue.

Solomon has racked up and five assists and six goals this season, including a goal against Manchester City in the Champions League.

He also found the net against Atalanta in October, which first alerted them of his quality.
