Tottenham are preparing a £50million move for Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke in the final 48 hours of the transfer window.

The 26-year-old is the leading English scorer in the division this season, scoring 12 goals for the Cherries.

Andoni Iraola is understandably desperate to keep Solanke but Bournemouth are not in a position to reject bids of around £50m for the former Liverpool ace.

Tottenham are the only member of the top six that are not close to their limit on Profit and Sustainability ruling.

Ange Postecoglou opted against spending the £100m from Harry Kane’s exit on a striker last summer, with Brennan Johnson arriving in a £45m deal.

The board promised him the money moving forward and the Sun say he wants to spend it on Solanke.

Iraola admitted at the start of the window that there’s no guarantee that Solanke will stay.

‘Dom (Solanke), Lloyd Kelly, they are some of our best players for sure. But you never know what’s going to happen every time the window is open,’ he admitted.

‘Of course, I want to keep our best players.

‘If we are talking about these players, there is no doubt that they are playing really well. We’ll see what happens.’
