Bournemouth are in advanced talks with Liverpool over the permanent signing of Dominic Solanke for £19m plus add-ons, Sky Sports News understands.
The 21-year-old striker had been a loan target for Crystal Palace but Eagles manager Roy Hodgson confirmed the move would not be going ahead on Wednesday.
Solanke joined Liverpool in July 2017 after his Chelsea contract expired and made 27 appearances, scoring one goal, last season but has not featured for Jurgen Klopp's side this term.
He won the Golden Ball award after helping England win the U20 World Cup in 2017 and made his senior England debut against Brazil in November that year, his sole senior cap so far.
Bournemouth entered negotiations for Solanke after striker Jermain Defoe moved closer to joining Rangers on loan.
Defoe has agreed personal terms with Scottish side and is set to join on an 18-month loan deal, according to Sky sources.
Manager Eddie Howe refused to comment on the potential move in his Friday morning press conference.
