According to the latest reports, Premier League giants Arsenal has been given a big boost in order to sign Bournemouth attacker Ryan Fraser in the upcoming summer transfer window. The Scottish star has been tipped to leave the Dean Court Stadium after Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe stated that there are no guarantees on the star forward remaining at the club.
With the transfer window coming closer and closer with each passing day, the top clubs in the Premier League are planning out their respective targets to make a splash in the summer transfer window. Arsenal seems to have an interesting summer transfer window awaiting at the moment as the Gunners are being linked with a few top quality departures and arrivals at the Emirates Stadium.
Unai Emery has implemented his philosophy into the club and has already figured out the players that he wants in the future at the club. The Spaniard took charge of Arsenal football club back in the summer of 2018 and has helped the club to the quarterfinals of the Europa League and they hold a 2-0 advantage over Napoli from the first leg of the tie. The North London side is sitting in fifth place on the Premier League table and is in a solid spot to finish inside the top four at the end of the season. But the 47-year-old is well aware that he needs to sign top quality players in the summer transfer window if he wants to compete for titles and win silverware in the near future with Arsenal.
The recent reports have linked Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser with a move to the Emirates as well as the 25-year-old is reportedly keen on moving away from the Dean Court stadium. Fraser has been incredible for the Cherries this season as he has netted seven times and also got 11 assists across all competitions this term catching interest from a few top clubs in the country including Arsenal.
More so, Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has hinted that Fraser could be linked with a move away from the club in the summer as he is not keen on signing a contract extension. While speaking to reporters, the 41-year-old English manager said, “We have spoken to Ryan and his representatives about his contract. It is one where we will see what happens. There is no doubting Ryan’s quality and how highly we think of him. He is an outstanding talent but it is a two-way prospect to sign a contract, so let us wait and see. Ryan has contributed to the team this season but it is not the time to talk about speculation. Who knows in the summer? It is that time of year when things change and we ourselves will be looking to sign players.”
With Aaron Ramsey set to leave the club, Fraser would be a great addition for Arsenal as he has the experience of playing in the Premier League. His dynamism, energy and work rate are all characteristics of a player who is wanted by Unai Emery.
