Bournemouth manager Parker eager to sign Solanke cover

Bournemouth manager Scott Parker has reiterated his desire to sign a striker before the transfer window closes.

The Cherries have been relying on Dominic Solanke for their goals this season as they look for promotion back to the Premier League.

When quizzed if he needs more strikers before next Monday's transfer deadline, Parker said: "Yeah, I think so. Obviously there is a big responsibility on Dom.

"You look at the goals and where they've come from in our team, we're heavily dependent on certain players.

"I think that's very obvious. I think that's down to us and we're trying our hardest to try and support that, trying to give us a little bit more depth that we can change things in certain moments, or in certain aspects of games.

"We're just a little bit short on that. In terms of injuries, of course that's had a little bit of an affect on that, but definitely in this window now, hopefully we can try and address that with personnel as well."

Reading striker Andy Carroll has been linked with a move to the Vitality Stadium.
