Spurs fans have already caught glimpses of his mesmerizing dribbling skills and ability to glide past defenders, not to mention his two crucial assists in his first Premier League start against Burnley.
Yet, the path to consistent starts at Tottenham is laden with challenges. With attacking firepower like Son Heung-Min, Dejan Kulusevski, Richarlison, Ivan Perisic, Brennan Johnson, and Bryan Gil all vying for places, competition is fierce.
However, it appears that Manor Solomon’s arrival has not gone unnoticed among his peers, with both Oliver Skipp and Emerson Royal heaping praise on the young winger. In an informal video chat discussing FIFA 24 ratings for various Spurs stars, Skipp was quick to spotlight Solomon’s prowess
