The 26-year-old Bournemouth and Scottish professional Ryan Fraser, has been on the radar of some Premier league clubs since his refusal to extend his current contract beyond the summer.
Primarily deployed as Left Winger, Fraser is a right-footed player described by his compatriot Charlie Nicholas as an “old-fashioned type of player” and “little pocket dynamo” for the muscly physique he has developed to “take the knocks and kicks that come his way.” Ryan has featured even as a right-back for both club and country, on occasions.
After he ranked highly in the assists chart during the 2018–19 Premier League season, sitting just behind former Chelsea winger Eden Hazard, it led to transfer speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal.
Many blamed Fraser’s ill form to the failed Arsenal move, and in January 2020 Ryan admitted that speculations to Arsenal caused his performances during the 2019–20.
Arsenal were rumoured to have been close in having him sign a pre-contract with them in January 2020, but no real progress was made.
A summer move to the Emirates for the soon to be free agent player was thought to be on the card but Arsenal’s hope of landing the Scottish international winger has now suffered a huge blow as @footyinsider247 and @dailystar revealed that Ryan Fraser has informed his close friends that he is set to reject Arsenal for a move to Tottenham Hotspur on a free agent at the end of this season.
Though Fraser’s performance hasn’t been on the same wavelength with last season’s contributions for Bournemouth, but he’s still regarded as one of the club’s most important player and also one of the best and productive winger in the league.
With the influence of Tottenham’s highly rated manager Jose Mourinho, the Spurs might just eventually snatch the Bournemouth winger from Arsenal’s radar, if the speculations (lately) are true.
