Bournemouth are eyeing a potential loan move for Liverpool forward Dominic Solanke, according to The Sun.
Solanke’s lack of game time for Liverpool
Solanke moved to Liverpool in the summer of 2017 on a free transfer from Chelsea.
Despite playing a fair few games for their youth side’s, Solanke made just one senior appearance for Chelsea.
Solanke is now having a similarly hard time working his way into Liverpool’s first-team picture.
The 21-year-old did make 27 appearances for Liverpool’s first team during the 2017/18 season, in which he scored one and assisted one.
However, the majority of those appearances were as a substitute.
Solanke is also really struggling for game time this season, the forward has yet to feature for Liverpool’s first-team this campaign and has played just twice for their under-23 side.
Would Solanke start for Bournemouth?
As it looks pretty clear Jurgen Klopp does not want to start Solanke in Liverpool’s main team at the moment, they may well be open to loaning the young English forward out to Bournemouth.

However, would Solanke actually start for Bournemouth or would he just be warming the bench like he does at Anfield?
Despite their current poor run of form, Bournemouth have enjoyed a solid start to the season and are 9th in the Premier League.
Their forwards have also been very impressive.
Calum Wilson has been particularly impressive for the Cherries. He has scored seven in 14 league appearances this season and his good form even earned him an England call-up.
Bournemouth’s other main forward Joshua King has also been in decent form.
King has started 11 league games this season, nine of which as a striker or secondary-striker and in those games King has scored five.
So, it is unlikely Solanke would be able to replace either King or Wilson should he join Bournemouth on loan.
