Arsenal to bid for 25-year-old after Europa League final – report
Arsenal are interested in a deal to sign Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser, according to a report
Arsenal will launch a bid for Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser after the Europa League final later this month, according to a report in England.
The Independent is reporting that the Gunners are interested in signing the Scotland international to bolster the options in wide areas ahead of the new season.
The same article states that Bournemouth are prepared to sell the 25-year-old in the upcoming transfer window rather than lose Fraser for nothing next summer.
According to the same story, the south coast club value Fraser at around £30m after Fraser created 14 goals for his Bournemouth team-mates in the 2018-19 Premier League campaign.
The Independent report goes on to say that Arsenal will attempt to drive down the Scottish winger’s asking price due to Unai Emery’s limited budget this summer.
The Gunners could be in a powerful negotiating position after interest from their Premier League rivals Liverpool FC and Manchester United cooled, the article suggests.
Arsenal will take on their bitter London rivals Chelsea FC in the Europa League final in Baku later this month following a 7-3 aggregate victory over Valencia in the semi-finals.
The Gunners missed out on a top-four finish in their first season under Emery’s management after the Spanish head coach replaced Arsene Wenger last summer.
