Dominic Solanke: Bournemouth set to sign Liverpool striker in £19m deal

Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke completed a permanent switch to Bournemouth on Friday, following in the footsteps of Jordon Ibe, who swapped Anfield for Dean Court in 2016.

The 21-year-old failed to make a single appearance under Jurgen Klopp this season, and he is looking forward to linking up with Cherries boss Eddie Howe.

According to a Sky Sports report, the 27-year-old England global, who has only four Premier League bow in the current campaign will help Bournemouth's injury situation with Simon Francis and Adam Smith out on the sidelines.

Solanke - who moved to Liverpool from Chelsea 18 months ago - is being tracked by several Premier League clubs.

He looked like joining Crystal Palace on loan earlier this week, but that move collapsed with Palace citing concerns over his fitness.

"Dominic is technically gifted, very athletic and has the physical profile that will give us something different in our front line", said Howe, as per The Guardian. "It's great chance for me to come and play football", Clyne told afcbTV.

Although the latter is now injured he is expected back from a fractured bone in his foot in the next fortnight and therefore Jurgen Klopp is prepared to allow the 27-year-old to leave even though they are in the middle of a title battle with Manchester City.

"I've spoken to the manager and we've talked about what we can achieve for the remainder of the season".

James Milner was used as a right-back in the recent win at Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Fabinho operated there during large spells of his time at Monaco. "I can't wait to get going", he added.

"With Adam Smith and Simon Francis suffering injuries, it was imperative to strengthen the right-back area and Nathaniel is a great fit for our squad in terms of his character and style of play".

Meanwhile, youngster Ki-Jana Hoever, a summer signing from Ajax, has impressed in the position during his appearances for Liverpool's under-18s and U23s sides.
