NEWCASTLE have enquired about Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke.
The 26-year-old has been in fine form for the Cherries so far this season.
His 12 goals in 19 Premier League matches are already double his previous best tally in the competition.
That injury leaves Alexander Isak as Newcastle’s only available senior centre forward.
According to The Telegraph, the Magpies have made an approach to Bournemouth for Solanke in a bid to solve their striker crisis.
However, the Cherries have responded by telling them that they are unwilling to sell the forward this month.
The former Liverpool striker still has three-and-a-half years remaining on his contract at the Vitality Stadium after signing an extension in September.
His 12-goal Premier League haul this season has only been bettered by Erling Haaland and Mohamed Salah.
Those strikes include a brace in a 2-0 home win over Newcastle in November.
He has not been capped by the Three Lions since making his senior international debut against Brazil in 2017.
