AFC Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke says he is not focused on the fee the Cherries spent to bring him to the South Coast last week.

The Daily Express write that Solanke, who will be out of action until the start of February with a hamstring injury, cost £19m from high-flying Liverpool.

The 21-year-old did not make a single Premier League appearance in the first half of the season under Kop boss Jurgen Klopp, forcing him to seek a move away to improve his playing time.

Ironically, he moved to Anfield in the summer of 2017 for that same reason, as he struggled to break into the first team at Chelsea having graduated from their youth academy.

His Cherries switch could provide him with the opportunity to transform potential into goalscoring ability, given the fact he has just one Premier League goal to his name in 21 outings.

Some claimed the fee was far too high on social media given that goalscoring record, but that is not something the one-cap England international is concerned about.

He said:

That side is a bit more of the business side. I don’t really focus too much on that, I’m just focused on playing really. I’m hoping a few more weeks but I’ve got to keep speaking to the medical team and see how my rehab goes.
