Tottenham are ‘closely monitoring’ former Chelsea wonderkid Dominic Solanke, according to Sun Online.

Solanke is in fine form for Bournemouth, scoring 12 goals in 18 Premier League games.

After a terrible start to the season, his fine form has helped the Cherries to seven wins in their last nine games.

It comes as no surprise that Ange Postecoglou’s side are keeping a close eye on the 26-year-old who was once tipped to be the ‘next Didier Drogba’ at Stamford Bridge.

“Spurs want to sign a striker in the summer,” reads the Sun’s report. “The club hasn’t replaced Harry Kane so recruiting a new forward is a big priority, and Solanke is someone they are closely monitoring.

“They’ve sent scouts to watch him already several times this season, and they will continue to track him into the New Year.

“He ticks a lot of boxes for Spurs, and Bournemouth know if he carries on showing the kind of form he is then they will struggle to stop other clubs from sniffing around him. They are bracing themselves for bids.”

Former Spurs player wants Solanke

Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara believes that Solanke would be an excellent addition to Postecoglou’s squad and is disappointed that they will probably have to wait until January to bring him in.

“I just don’t see how Bournemouth can let him go [in January],” he said on talkSPORT. “They were tipped to go down this season and then all of a sudden, they’ve found some great form and are playing well.

“Look, at the end of the season, if someone comes in for £80 to £90 million, then they’ll let him go and rebuild from there, buying a couple of decent players.

“But I can’t see how they’d let him go [in January]. I’d love him to be at Tottenham. I look at him and think he’s perfect for how we want to play.”
