Tony Cascarino has given his verdict on Dominic Solanke and has said that it is unlikely that the Blues board will sign the striker

Solanke started his professional career at Chelsea 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 – with Chelsea, Arsenal and rivals Tottenham among those linked.

Solanke is available for £65m this summer and The Blues are one of the clubs interested, according to the Daily Express. But Cascarino has been speaking on a possible Blues deal for the striker.

“I would probably, I am showing my bias here, probably slightly CHELSEA,” said Cascarino about Solanke moving to Stamford Bridge or north London.

“I am not sure a club will pay £65 million for Dominic Solanke. He had a terrific season. You have had an outstanding season.

“There’s a much bigger picture there. If you look over his career in total, then Dominic has improved, he got goals in the Championship, he didn’t really in his younger days he didn’t really make it at Liverpool, they let him go, they didn’t think he was good enough.

“I still think it’s a lot of money for someone that if he had gone in and had two, three seasons scoring at huge amounts, like Ollie Watkins has got goals regularly year by year, increase regularly.

“I don’t know if we just saw a standout season by Solanke there. Not saying he is not a really good player because he has improved a hell of a lot and fair play to him for that. Would I want to pay £65 million? I am not sure Spurs or CHELSEA would want to go that deep.”
