Dominic Solanke failed to break into Antonio Conte's first-team squad at Chelsea.

Chelsea and Liverpool are set to head for a tribunal in order to determine a transfer fee for former academy product Dominic Solanke, reports the Mirror.

Dominic Solanke joined Liverpool on a free this summer after the 19-year-old striker failed to agree a new contract with the Premier League champions.

The London club are due a fee from Liverpool for their efforts in developing the young talent, who, according to the Mirror, left his boyhood club in order to seek first team opportunists elsewhere.

However, the Mirror report that the two teams are miles apart in their valuation of the player and, as a result, the two Premier League teams look set to head to a court tribunal where the despute will be resolved.

Solanke joined Chelsea at Under-8 level and was tipped to become a star of the future. However, the 19-year-old managed just one appearance for the Blues, making his debut at Stamford Bridge in a Champions League group stage game against Maribor.
