Albion are monitoring Liverpool's England under-21 striker Dominic Solanke.

But they are oblivious to reports that Solanke is poised to join arch-rivals Crystal Palace on loan in preference to a permanent move to the Amex.

Solanke is expected to leave Anfield in the January transfer window in the quest for more game time.

The former Chelsea youth marksman has not made an appearance this season for Jurgen Klopp's table-toppers, who come to the Amex on January 12.

He scored his only Premier League goal against Albion at the end of last season.

The Argus understands Solanke is a player they like and they track his progress.

He is well-known to Dan Ashworth, who joins the Seagulls in the spring as technical director from the same role with the FA.

According to a report in The Guardian, Solanke may prefer a move to Selhurst Park for the rest of the season as he is more likely to get more minutes for them.

He has also been linked with relegation-haunted Huddersfield and Fulham, together with Glasgow Rangers.

Meanwhile, Albion remain open minded about a January move for fringe first team squad member Ezequiel Schelotto (below).

The Argus: The right-back nearly joined a Championship club in the summer.

He was named in Albion's 25-man Premier League squad but has not featured this season after 20 Premier League appearances last season.

The 29-year-old Argentine Italian, signed from Sporting Lisbon, two summers ago, hinted at an exit in an Instagram post on Boxing Day, when Albion drew against Arsenal at the Amex.

He wrote with a picture of him playing in the victory against the Gunners last season: "Great performance today, disappointment for not winning.

"Here remembering the great victory of last season, In a few days everything will return as it has to be."
