That sort of form has been in Solanke’s locker for some time, with the striker scoring 30 goals to help Bournemouth to promotion in 2021/22, before racking up seven goals and seven assists in their first campaign back in the top flight.

But while the 26-year-old’s goal tally this term sees him third in the Premier League’s top scorer list behind Erling Haaland and Mohamed Salah, drawing transfer links to Arsenal and Tottenham, his manager believes that he offers a variety of things to their team.

Speaking about Solanke’s great form on The Sports Breakfast, Iraola said: “He has been really from the beginning.

“Even last season he played really well but it’s true that now he’s playing with the confidence that goals give you.


“I think we value him a lot more than just the goals. He gives us a lot out of possession, holding up the ball and providing the play for the line of three behind him.

“It’s true that the first thing you look for when you evaluate is the goals and he’s getting them.”

Solanke was targeted by a number of clubs during the January transfer window as a result of his form this term.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur were among the clubs linked with the striker.

Solanke has a contract with Bournemouth that runs until 2027, meaning that they’re under no pressure to sell their most valuable asset.
