England striker Dominic Solanke has joined Bournemouth from Liverpool. The 21 year old completed the move for about £19m.
Solanke was due to join Crystal Palace on loan earlier this week but the deal fell through because of fitness concerns.
Bournemouth are about to allow forward Jermain Defoe to join Scottish Premiership side Rangers.
It is understood Solanke cannot move to the Cherries on loan under Premier League regulations.
Bournemouth are also set to sign Reds right-back Nathaniel Clyne on loan until the end of the season.
“The club is going somewhere – it’s a good club to be at, especially for someone of my age,” said Solanke.
Cherries boss Eddie Howe said he was “really excited” about working with Solanke.
“Dominic is technically gifted, very athletic and has the physical profile that will give us something different in our front line,” said Howe.
Solanke, a former England youth international who has one senior cap against Brazil in 2017, joined Liverpool from Chelsea on a free transfer in 2017.
The Under-20 World Cup winner made 21 appearances last season, 16 of which were from the bench, scoring one goal.
He never made a senior league appearance in three years at Chelsea, spending the 2015-16 season on loan at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, where he scored seven goals in 25 Eredivisie appearances.
Welcome, @DomSolanke 🙌
