Solanke, 19, quit Chelsea on a Bosman to move to Anfield because he was frustrated by his lack of first-team opportunities.
The England Under-20 World Cup winner managed just 17 minutes of senior action as a substitute when he was 17 against NK Maribor in the Champions League nearly three years ago.
Solanke’s only league appearances came during his loan spell at Vitesse Arnhem in 2015-16 and he is certain he will be given more of a chance by Jurgen Klopp.
“Every time I see Liverpool, there’s such a family nature, there’re a lot of young players doing well at the club, so I think it will be a good place for me to develop my career,” said the striker, whose compensation fee is set to be decided by a tribunal.
“As a young player, you always want to see the club you’re at pushing young players through.
“I’m quite good friends with Joe Gomez – I’ve known him since we were young – and obviously Ovie [Ejaria] and Sheyi [Ojo] were with us at the Under-20 World Cup. We spoke a bit when we were away, so I’m looking forward to enjoying it with them.
“Liverpool’s got a lot of good young players, so hopefully everyone can play their part.”
Klopp has blooded 11 home-grown players during his 21-month reign and Solanke feels the German is the right coach to help him realise his potential.
“Every time I’ve seen him, he’s always so enthusiastic and passionate so I think that’s what you need,” said the Reading-born teenager.
“As a young player you just want to reach your full potential, so to have good players around you and a good manager to help will be really good.
“I just want to make an impact. Hopefully when I get my opportunity I can take it and help the team.”
