Crystal Palace were also interested in signing the striker from Liverpool.

AFC Bournemouth unveil new signing Dominic Solanke at Vitality Stadium on January 4, 2019 in Bournemouth, England.

Crystal Palace fans are reacting on Twitter after one of their transfer targets made a shock switch to Bournemouth instead. Dominic Solanke left Liverpool to join the Cherries on Friday - for a reported fee of £19 million, plus add-ons.

It comes just days after the Palace manager, Roy Hodgson, confirmed his side had opted against pursuing a deal for the striker, with the BBC suggesting that was due to medical reasons.


But what do those of a Crystal Palace persuasion - who have seen their recognised centre-forwards score just once in the Premier League this season - make of Solanke's move?

Some of them aren't too pleased...






Others, however, are supportive of the Eagles' decision...





Solanke moved to Liverpool from Chelsea in 2017, but only scored once in 27 games for Jurgen Klopp's side.

The England Under-21 international is expected to replace another (rumoured) Crystal Palace target, Jermain Defoe, at Bournemouth, with Rangers thought to be closing in on the 36-year-old.
