Ryan Fraser

The Scottish attacking midfielder has a contract with the Cherries until 2020 but he isn’t opposed to an exit.

Player stats

The 25-year-old progressed through the youth ranks of Aberdeen and soon got promoted to the first-team.

Later he signed for Bournemouth, who were playing in League One at the time.

Fraser is currently having the best season of his career in the Premier League with some incredible stats.

He has bagged 9 goals and 13 assists to his name across all competitions this season, and he is the joint top assists provider in the Premier League with Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

Fraser has earned seven caps for his national team so far.

Interest from other clubs

Fellow London clubs Tottenham and Chelsea were also said to be tracking the Scotsman

Why Should Arsenal go for Fraser?

The Scotsman is a versatile forward, who can play on the wings and also as an attacking midfielder.

And the Gunners have undergone a dip in form as of late, which has raised questions regarding their top-four hopes.

With players like Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s future up in the air, Unai Emery can seek the services of Fraser to fill their void.

While being asked about the interests from the Gunners, Fraser replied that it feels good to be linked with such clubs. (h/t The Mirror UK)

The statement indicates his willingness to raise the bars and test himself at the big clubs.

Emery’s men suffered a humiliating defeat in the hands of Leicester City.
