Dominic Solanke

Liverpool have accepted a £19million transfer bid from Bournemouth for striker Dominic Solanke.

The 21-year-old has inked a permanent contract with The Cherries after Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp gave the green light for a deal to proceed.

Solanke had opted to join Crystal Palace on loan but they ended their interest due to concerns regarding his fitness following a medical. The England Under 21 international, who was handed his first cap for the senior England side against Brazil in November 2017, has been nursing a muscle injury in recent weeks but is now close to a return.

A number of other clubs registered their interest in the player but it is Bournemouth who have secured his signature.

Liverpool have confirmed the deal but they haven’t disclosed any details. However, we understand that the Reds will receive £19million and that amount can increase if various add-ons are met in the future.

Solanke’s team-mate Nathaniel Clyne is also heading to Bournemouth on loan for the rest of the season.
