Bournemouth should target this out of favour striker
Dominic Solanke is a very promising talent in English football. The 20-year old striker has been at Liverpool for less than a year but has become frustrated at the lack of playing time at Anfield.
Solanke won the under-20 world cup with England in 2017 and secured a move from Chelsea to rivals Liverpool only to be kept out of the team by free-scoring Egyptian Mo Salah.
With his career stalling it’s vital that the young striker gets some regular playing time and a move to a smaller club may be what’s best for Solanke.
It’s no secret that there has been a lack of goals for Bournemouth this season and with their top-flight status all but secured a summer move for Solanke may be what Eddie Howe needs. Last summer they brought in veteran striker Jermain Defoe, after his heroics at Sunderland, who has failed to live up to his best scoring just three goals this season.
Dominic Solanke could be the key to Bournemouth launching a potential European charge next season. The England striker has only scored seven goals in his professional career so far but with an extended run of games and his brilliant potential, there’s no reason he can’t kick-start his career at Bournemouth.
Jürgen Klopp is a keen admirer of Solanke and showed his trust in the youngster by making him the backup striker to Roberto Firmino in Danny Ings’ absence. Klopp even sent out former England bagsman Daniel Sturridge as he chose to keep Solanke around the squad instead. This could mean that Klopp might be reluctant to sell Solanke should Bournemouth make their move which could require a substantial fee. Instead, Eddie Howe may be tempted to take the Liverpool striker on loan which would aid his development and work for both clubs.
