Chelsea are interested in a shock move for Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke.

Solanke started his professional career at Stamford Bridge after spending a decade in the academy at Stamford Bridge. He was a prolific goalscorer at youth level but was rarely given the chance for the first team.

After an unsuccessful spell at Liverpool, he has found a home at Bournemouth and is finally proving he can score goals in the Premier League. he scored 19 goals and registered three assists for Bournemouth last season

And his performances have seen him tipped to move to a ‘Bix Six’ Premier League club – he  is available for £65m this summer and we are one of the clubs interested, according to the Daily Express.

And reporter Iomie Stanley claims that we need to sign a striker – and Solanke is a man that could score a few goals – he said: ‘ Obviously CHELSEA fans want Ivan Toney – he is the number one target for the club.

‘Solanke would cost well below £50 million and is scoring goals for fun – he is the type of target man that could surprise many at Stamford Bridge and win a few games for the club with his goals.

‘It could be a very good bit of business to get this done to solve a big problem, if the right amount of money is being paid, £65 million is not that as Solanke is not worth that amount of cash.’
