Whilst the run in at the end of the season promises to be thoroughly entertaining, a lot of Arsenal fans are equally excited for the summer transfer window to open, and who can blame them. Reports are starting to surface linking the Gunners with signing different players, and the reliable Paul Joyce of The Times claims they’re in for Ryan Fraser.
Ryan Fraser is said to be a serious target for Arsenal. The Scotsman has scored 6 goals & provided 10 assists for Bournemouth.
He also has created 21 big chances this season, the MOST this season (his next competitor being Eden Hazard on 13).

The Scottish winger has shown his true colours this season as a top quality Premier League winger. The Aberdeen native has contributed six goals and ten assists in the top flight for Bournemouth this season. The 25-year-old has also, according to Squawka on Twitter, created the most ‘big chances’ in the Premier League this season with 21, eight more than second-placed Eden Hazard who has 13.
If the Scottish winger was to swap the Vitality Stadium for The Emirates, the fans wouldn’t be expecting him to be their answer to Hazard at Chelsea, nor would they be relying on him to post the numbers that Alexis Sanchez used to put up, but what they would be asking for is a more reliable wide-man than Alex Iwobi. All they want is someone who can provide 10-15 combined goals and assists from the wing, as the club are seriously lacking a real winger this season and Fraser can provide exactly that.

Reiss Nelson on one wing, Fraser on the other? Wouldn’t mind that.

If I had a choice between Iwobi & Fraser at LW then Fraser wins hands down. We should look to do way better than both however.

The Gunners all seem keen to bring Fraser to North London, and would much rather have him out wide on the left than the inconsistent Alex Iwobi.
