Fraser may run Cherries contract down
Bournemouth would reportedly rather let winger Ryan Fraser leave for nothing next summer than sell him to Arsenal in the current transfer window.
The 25-year-old is now in the final 12 months of his deal with the Cherries and is said to be keen on playing for a bigger club.
The Gunners are thought to be interested, with manager Unai Emery reportedly a big fan of the Scotland international wide man having watched him in action last season.
The north Londoners are still trying to sign Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha but may turn their attentions to Fraser should that deal not go through.
Manager Eddie Howe has a decision to make in the next few weeks with Fraser able to leave for nothing in 12 months’ time, and has the option of offering him improved terms at the Vitality Stadium.
He could also be sold and would commend a decent transfer fee for the club, but the Mirror are suggesting the south-coast outfit do not want to sell him to Arsenal at any cost.
It remains to be seen what happens and it may be that the former Aberdeen man does remain with Bournemouth for another campaign or at least until January, when Emery may look to pounce once again.
