Why Ryan Fraser would be a brilliant fit for Nuno’s Wolves
According to a report from the Birmingham Mail, Wolves are interested in signing Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser during the January transfer window.
Ryan Fraser, 25, has been eyed by a number of bigger clubs after thriving with Bournemouth. During the 2018-19 campaign, he made 35 starts and three substitute appearances in the league for the Cherries, scoring seven goals and providing 14 assists in the process.
The winger has scored one goal and provided one assist in five Premier League appearances so far this season.
The Scotland international has been playing well for the Cherries for a while now, and there is no surprise that Wolves are the latest club to show an interest in securing his signature.
Fraser is out of contract at the end of the season but Eddie Howe is desperate to retain the services of their Player of the Season from the last term.
The report adds that the Cherries are preparing to offer Fraser £100,000 a week in order to fend off interest from their Premier League rivals. Wolves, however, could tempt the Scotsman by offering European football this season.
After splashing the cash upon their promotion to the top-flight, the Wanderers did wonders by earning a berth in this year’s Europa League. With the early start and additional workload, the fans anticipated that there would be a number of players added to what appeared to be a thin squad.
However, Nuno Espirito Santo welcomed only a handful of new arrivals and that approach has led fans to become concerned with fatigue, particularly after their team’s slow start to the Premier League season.
Wolves are winless in the new season, with Nuno’s men given a battering by Frank Lampard’s Chelsea at the weekend. Things aren’t just clicking at the moment for Nuno as his team is not only finding it difficult to defend but also are facing problems while breaching the opposition’s backline.
In short, the Midlands outfit are lacking a creative presence who can provide with more services for the likes of Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota in the box.
Ryan Fraser would fit the billing perfectly at the Molineux. He offers plenty of versatility, capable of playing in various positions across the front-line as well as a wing-back when required.
The Scottish international brings qualities that are unique to the side; pace, power, trickery and clever movement that absolutely frightens opposing full-backs.

The ex-Aberdeen man’s close control and ability to dribble past players in tight situations make him one of the most exciting attackers in the Premier League. All in all, Fraser can easily plug the holes and play for Nuno’s Wolves, as he already looks like a tailor-made option for them.
Hence, it makes absolute sense for Wolves to make a move for Fraser in January.
