Arsenal are the favourites to sign Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser ahead of Chelsea FC, according to a report.

Website football.london, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Arsenal are monitoring the Bournemouth winger ahead of the summer transfer window.

The same article states that Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been impressed with the performances of Fraser in the Premier League this season.

According to the same story, the Gunners boss is hoping that Fraser could prove to be a cheap alternative given the limited funds at his disposal this season.

Chelsea FC are also keeping tabs on Fraser’s situation at Bournemouth ahead of the summer transfer window, the story goes on to add.

Fraser has scored seven goals and has made 13 assists in 36 games in the Premier League this season.

Only Chelsea FC number 10 Eden Hazard has made as many assists as Fraser in the current campaign.

Ironically, Fraser could end up being one of the signings that the Blues make to replace Hazard if the Belgian moves to Real Madrid this summer.

The Scottish winger started his professional career at SPL club Aberdeen before the attacker moved to Bournemouth back in 2012-13.

The 25-year-old has helped Bournemouth to hoist themselves from League One into the Premier League thanks to a return of 22 goals in 171 games over the past six seasons.
