Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser has been linked with various Premier League clubs and journalist Ed Malyon has provided an update on Twitter saying that Crystal Palace are monitoring his situation, much to the excitement of many Eagles fans.
The Scottish winger is out of contract in the summer as it stands, despite a superb 2018/19 season in which he managed seven goals and 14 assists, per WhoScored, whilst averaging 1.3 shots and 2.4 key passes a game, as well as being fouled 1.8 times per match.
Would Fraser be a good signing?
Even though both Fraser and Bournemouth are having poor seasons, his 1.4 key passes a game still ranks highest when you compare it with the Eagles squad (excluding Brandon Pierrick, who has only played on game) and it would add a much-needed eye for goal for a team which have scored the second fewest goals in the division this season, per SofaScore.
Here is what these Palace fans have been saying about the club’s links with Fraser:
Ryan Fraser one of those in a weird situation. Contract expires soon and he’s 99% certain to leave, so returning to play for Bournemouth in their survival bid could actually put his next contract -a career-defining contract- at risk.

Would take him in a heartbeat. Difficult season but his ability to cut inside and beat players would work really well for us.

He’d be one heck of a signing for us but I can’t see him not getting a seriously good offer from one of the top six. https://t.co/BK0izS0x5E
