Bournemouth are growing increasingly resigned to losing Ryan Fraser this summer with Arsenal still being heavily linked with the player.
Ryan Fraser has 14 assists this season in the Premier League, second only to Eden Hazard who became the first player across Europe’s top division to hit 15 for the season. That he’s doing it with Bournemouth makes his return even more impressive than the Chelsea man’s and his stock is the highest it has ever been.
Fraser is aware of Arsenal’s interest and has even admitted he found it a bit distracting. Still, not so distracting that he’s ignoring it totally.
Although Spurs, Chelsea and Newcastle are also keen it is Arsenal who have been linked with the player the most.
Speaking recently, Eddie Howe said, “We would sign Ryan to a new contract tomorrow but that’s obviously a two-way process.”
At the start of April Fraser himself said, “I’m not going to lie, it’s very nice,” Fraser said. “It means you are doing something right. They [Arsenal] are a huge club, a massive club. When you see your name thrown around you always think to yourself that you are a Bournemouth player and you try to do well.
“I’m not going to lie, you do feel good, especially when it’s a massive club.”
Fraser is out of contract next summer and the winger is said to be top of Unai Emery’s wishlist.
