Arsenal favour signing 25-year-old winger over Yannick Carrasco – report
Arsenal are prepared to snub a move to sign Yannick Carrasco to land Ryan Fraser this summer, say reports
Arsenal are prepared to snub a move to sign Yannick Carrasco to pursue a deal for Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Gunners would prefer to seal the signing of winger Fraser this summer ahead of the Belgium international.
The same story says that although Carrasco remains on Arsenal’s radar, the north London side would favour a move to bring 25-year-old Scotland international to The Emirates this summer.
It is claimed in the same article that Fraser is “significantly” higher on Arsenal’s summer wish-list as they look to bolster their squad ahead of next season.
Fraser was in impressive form for Bournemouth last season, scoring seven goals and making 14 assists in 37 Premier League appearances for the Cherries.
The same story says that Fraser is under contract until 2020 and is valued at around £30m by Bournemouth.
Arsenal are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to bolster their squad following another trophyless campaign.
The north London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League table and lost 4-1 to Chelsea FC in the Europa League final last month.
