Liverpool have had two very joyous occasions against Newcastle United so far this season as they have already done the double over them in the Premier League.

In the away game Darwin Nunez gave supporters in the away end one of the best moments in recent memory as he scored two late goals when The Reds were down to ten men.

At Anfield Liverpool absolutely destroyed Newcastle throughout the game amassing over seven expected goals and won the game 4-2.

Eddie Howe’s side were depleted with injuries and have been in a rough run of form so when they found out recently that striker Callum Wilson will also be out for a long time optimism wasn’t high.

The club are now looking to do something about that in the January transfer window by trying to sign a former Liverpool player.

Newcastle United have interest in Dominic Solanke

According to a report from The Telegraph Newcastle want to address their striker situation by bringing in Dominic Solanke who had a fine season so far for Bournemouth.

So far during this campaign he has played 22 games in all competitions scoring 13 goals whilst getting one assist for a Bournemouth side who have impressed under Andoni Iraola.

Therefore there is no surprise that other clubs are looking at the England international who joined Liverpool from Chelsea on a free transfer back in 2017.

He played 27 appearances for the club scoring just the one goal and he even came on in Liverpool’s Champions League quarter-final and semi-final in their run to the 2018 final in Kyiv.

Newcastle have supposedly enquired for the 26-year-old and are ready to make their move for him but if Bournemouth do sell him Liverpool will get some funds due to their 20% sell-on clause that they put into his contract.

So they will be hoping Newcastle pay a hefty fee but Bournemouth are likely to stand their ground as they are just four points behind them with a game in hand.
