According to the Liverpool Echo, Bournemouth are trying to sign Liverpool hitman Dominic Solanke for £19 million this month.

Jermain Defoe looks all set to leave the Vitality Stadium for Rangers, so Eddie Howe will undoubtedly need reinforcements in the attacking department.

 

The Cherries began their season in magnificent fashion, but they are currently in the midst of a woeful run of form that has seen them win just once in their last seven games in all competitions, so an injection on new blood and fresh legs would be a major boost for them.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Bournemouth want Liverpool hitman Solanke, and are closing in on a £19 million deal to acquire his services this month.

The 21-year-old is hardly prolific, but it could be argued that he hasn't actually been given ample opportunity to prove himself.

He's scored just one goal in 27 career appearances for the Reds, so Bournemouth laying out £19 million for his signature would obviously represent quite a risk.

Solanke does have bags of potential, however, and if he continues to improve, he could end up being an absolute bargain for the Cherries.
