Arsenal scouts in Belgium to check on wingers
Arsenal officials were in attendance to check on Ryan Fraser and Yannick Carrasco in Belgium’s 3-0 over Scotland on Tuesday.
Bournemouth wideman Fraser did not start the Euro 2020 qualifiers Brussels, coming on after the half-hour mark but had little opportunity to impress against a Belgium side who comfortably maintained their 100 per cent record in qualification.
Arsenal are said to be big fans of the Cherries winger and have been linked with a £20million bid, which Bournemouth will struggle to turn down as he has just a year left on his present deal at the Vitality Stadium.
Despite attracting interest from elsewhere, reports claim Fraser has set his heart on a switch to the Gunners and will hold out for a move to north London.
However, he could be forced to consider other options with Arsenal also keen on Carrasco, who only came off the bench in the 90th minute.
Reports in Germany claim the Gunners are in advanced negotiations for the former Atletico Madrid man, who is valued at £25million by his current club, Dalian Yifang.
