Transfer rumours

Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser is reportedly ready to leave the club this summer with heavy links to Arsenal.

Fraser's contract is set to expire in 2020, and according to reports by the Daily Mirror, the Scotland international is said to not have any interest in renewing and will look to persuade The Cherries to sell him in July. 

The report further speculates that Fraser is keen on testing himself at a higher level, having showcased impressively for Bournemouth over the last six years.

This 2018/19 season has been his most prolific to date, having scored seven goals and involved in  13 assists in the Premier League. 

Arsenal have however been linked with 25-year-old for some time, and if reports are anything to go by, this could be the right moment for the Gunners to make their move, with Fraser allegedly setting up a meeting with Bournemouth to share his desire to leave. 

The Daily Mail also claims Tottenham and Chelsea are monitoring developments – but it is the Gunners who are currently in the driving seat.

Fraser recently admitted he has been a little distracted by Arsenal’s interest, telling BBC Sport: “Maybe it hasn’t helped. Subconsciously, you might think about it. I’m just trying to get on with my work. Every player says that.

“At the same time, I think the best thing I can do is play well on the pitch. There’s no point in stuff coming out and then I start to have bad games.”
