Bournemouth supporters on Twitter have reacted with uncertainty to the news that they have signed striker Dominic Solanke from Liverpool.
The Cherries announced on their official website on Friday that the 21-year-old has sealed his move from Anfield to Dean Court putting pen-to-paper on a long-term contract.
BBC Sport claim that Bournemouth have signed the England player for a deal worth £19 million as they are also set to sign Reds right-back Nathaniel Clyne on-loan until the end of the season.
Following his move to the south coast, Solanke will now be looking to pair up with his England teammate Callum Wilson, who has been in blistering form this season.
Nonetheless, during his career so far, Solanke has represented the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem.
He will be now looking to make his mark under the attack-minded Eddie Howe, with Bournemouth sitting 12th in the Premier League table.
One Bournemouth fan on Twitter stated that the club have 'paid too much' for Solanke as he pointed towards the 'quality' reported signing of Clyne.
Others simply raised their eyebrows at the reported fee that has been paid for the youngster as the supporters are hoping he can fulfil his potential with the club.
Here is a selection of Bournemouth fans reaction to Solanke's confirmed transfer on Twitter:
Clyne is a quality signing and although we’ve paid too much for Solanke, he’s a good replacement for Defoe and can hopefully realise his potential here. A centre mid in the door and that’s a good window for us. #afcb— Joe Simpson (@98Jobo) January 4, 2019
Clyne on loan is a good deal with our defensive injuries and frailties. Solanke for 19m? Time will tell I guess but I will give him a chance before I judge him. A big fish in a little pond might suit him #afcb— Scott Anthony (@Chicaned02) January 4, 2019
Jordon Ibe £15m— Bournemouth Türkiye (@AFCBTurkiye) January 4, 2019
Brad Smith £3m
Dominic Solanke £19m
It's probably not relevant, but I note that Stoke are paying £12M for Afobe and afcb are paying £19M for Solanke. Not trying to compare, but strikers are expensive and some might be better value than others.— Keith Brewer (@kcb49) January 4, 2019
Whatever you think of the fee, if Solanke is worth 19 million, then what should we be asking for Wilson? Surely double that. #afcb— James Coleman (@JColeman99) January 4, 2019
