According to reports, Arsenal and other Premier League clubs are interested in Shakhtar Donetsk winger Manor Solomon, who has been likened to Eden Hazard in the past.


Reports from The Guardian are claiming that Arsenal are planning to move for the Israeli winger at the end of the season.


The 21-year-old has go five goals and one assist this season, starring as a left winger for Shakhtar, whilst also playing as a right winger and as an attacking midfielder.


The Israeli winger has been compared to Eden Hazard recently, with his play style being very similar to the Belgian forward.


Solomon has given Arsenal and other Premier League clubs hope of sealing a deal in the summer, during an interview with Sport5 in Israel, admitting that talks have already started with several teams in England, with there being plenty of competition for his signature.


"There are talks with teams from England, there are things that can happen in the summer," he said.


"My dream is to play in England and it also seems to me the most realistic option for me. And teams in England can pay."


Given the financial power of Premier League clubs, English clubs seem the most likely to tempt Shakhtar to selling one of their most important players.


Arsenal were linked with Solomon in January, but eventually opted to sign Martin Odegaard on loan from Real Madrid, yet the Norwegian has played just 32 minutes so far for the Gunners, being subbed on with the hope of rescuing Arsenal some points in recent weeks.
