Tottenham Hotspur are monitoring Bournemouth’s striker, Dominic Solanke as they aim to sign a new striker next summer, according to The Sun.
After a disastrous spell with Liverpool and Chelsea first teams, Solanke has been a mainstay in Bournemouth’s attack and was a key figure in The Cherries promotion to the Premier League last campaign. This season, Solanke has been in scintillating form for Andoni Iraola’s team including a notable hat-trick against Nottingham Forest last week.
Tottenham will be closely monitoring the 26-year-old between now and the end of the season, and The Sun also adds that Premier League leaders, Arsenal are also keen on the former Chelsea and Liverpool striker. He has scored eleven goals in the Premier League this season.
Solanke has a contract that runs until June 2027 at the Vitality Stadium and Liverpool are bracing themselves to make a significant profit as they currently hold a 20% sell-on clause following his £24m move to Bournemouth.
Dominic Solanke’s resurgence has been remarkable, with his journey showcasing the unpredictable nature of football careers. While initially struggling to make a significant impact at Liverpool, his fortunes changed after a move to Bournemouth.
The one-cap England International found his rhythm and became a crucial figure, particularly during Bournemouth’s time in the EFL Championship. Solanke’s standout performances have continued into the current Premier League season, marking a notable turnaround in his career trajectory.
Solanke’s impressive goal-scoring form, highlighted by a recent hat-trick against Nottingham Forest, has sparked interest from top clubs, including Arsenal and Tottenham.
Tottenham’s pursuit of Solanke makes strategic sense, considering their current squad dynamics. While Richarlison has shown improvement with four goals in his last three matches, the absence of a natural striker beyond the young Alejo Veliz creates a gap that Solanke could fill effectively, providing valuable depth and experience in the attacking department for Tottenham.
Solanke’s goal-scoring prowess has undoubtedly put him on the radar of clubs seeking a reliable striker and his dynamism makes him a perfect fit for Ange Postecoglou’s squad.
