Arsenal want 25-year-old Premier League winger – report
Arsenal are set to reignite their interest in Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser, according to a report
Arsenal are set to reignite their interest in Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser this summer, according to a report in England.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Gunners are looking at Fraser after conceding defeat in their bid to sign Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha.
The same article states that Unai Emery was impressed with Fraser’s “exceptional work rate” for Bournemouth in the Premier League last season.
According to the same story, the Spanish head coach would like to sign both Fraser and Zaha but the Arsenal manager is under financial constraints in the current transfer window.
The report goes on Bournemouth manager Howe is eager to keep Fraser at the south coast club ahead of the new Premier League season.
The Daily Mirror go on to say that Bournemouth would be looking for a transfer fee in the region of £20m for Fraser.
The media outlet add that Fraser’s current deal is set to expire next summer so Bournemouth may want to sell now rather than lose the former Abderdeen winger for nothing at the end of the 2019-20 season.
Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season before the Gunners lost 4-1 to Chelsea FC in the Europa League final in Baku.
