Are you excited to hear that Dominic Solanke could be the next number nine for Newcastle United?

With his impressive skills and experience, he could be the perfect fit for the team. Keep an eye out

Newcastle United may be looking to make a move for a new striker this summer to fill the number nine position, as Callum Wilson has spent a lot of time on the sidelines this season due to injuries. They previously inquired about Dominic Solanke in January, but Bournemouth was not interested in discussing any offers at the time. However, given the history between Eddie Howe and Solanke, and the forward's ability to press, this could be a beneficial move for both player and coach.


Wilson has been an essential player for Newcastle since he arrived back in 2020, scoring 47 Premier League goals and helping the team stay in the league during his early years with the club. Although he signed a one-year extension in September, there was reported interest from European clubs in Wilson during the January window, with Atletico Madrid being the favorites to secure his services at the time. Wilson's ability to stay fit consistently has been a hurdle, and the club will need a forward player who can guarantee availability as they aim to achieve European football and compete in the domestic cup competitions.


Alexander Isak has been instrumental for Newcastle this season, and rumors have already circulated that he is the number one target for title contenders Arsenal. Therefore, it's crucial to strengthen the front line and provide insurance in that position if Isak were to leave the team.


Dominic Solanke could be an excellent option for Newcastle as he can not only score goals but also press, which is a key element of Howe's tactics. Solanke's agile approach and hold-up play can support the likes of Isak, Gordon, Barnes, and Almiron, who will work off the target man. With 18 Premier League goals so far this season, Solanke is also knocking on Gareth Southgate's door to be on the plane to Germany this summer. There's no doubt he could fill the void if Wilson were to leave this summer, and his proven track record in the league would increase the chances of him hitting the ground running and continuing his current goalscoring exploits.


However, the issue for Newcastle will be the fee Bournemouth would demand for their main man. Solanke's price tag will be high, and Bournemouth will have every right to demand a significant fee, considering what other strikers have gone for in recent years. As Solanke looks to continue his form going into Bournemouth's last two games against Brentford and Chelsea, his ambition to play in Europe could become a reality, as Newcastle may potentially look to secure his services this summer.
