Dominic Solanke has completed his permanent move to Bournemouth from Liverpool.
The youngster had been linked with a number of clubs for a short term loan move but now the Cherries have snapped up the player for a reported fee of £19m. The 21 year old will add some more firepower to Eddie Howe’s attacking prowess.
The youngster came through various ranks at Chelsea and decided to move to Liverpool in 2017. The two sides had a long argument over the fee and finally the Reds paid the West London side and an undisclosed amount to acquire the service of the forward.
He was on the verge of sealing a loan move to Crystal Palace but the move was stalled and the Cherries have taken advantage of the situation by bringing him to the Vitality stadium.
Solanke said, “I think the club is going somewhere. Over the past few years, they have been really good in the Premier League and had some good positional finishes as well. I think it’s a good club to be at, especially for someone of my age.
“I spoke with the manager this morning [Friday]. He is a really nice guy. From playing and watching the Premier League, I know the sort of manager he is. I was excited to meet him and am really looking forward to working with him and seeing what he’s about.
“My main target is to score goals and, being a striker, hopefully I can get a few for the team and help the team get wins. Playing in the Premier League, every game is tough and together we can try to do as well as we can.”
