Ryan Fraser has quite clearly earned himself some admirers following the season he has just had with Bournemouth.
The 25-year-old, who provided 14 assists in the Premier League campaign just gone, has apparently caught the attention of Arsenal as Unai Emery looks to bolster his squad after a tough start to life in England.
But as well as the Gunners, according to the Daily Star, Tottenham are also interested in Fraser, though any decision on the Scotland international’s future is unlikely to be made until the end of the transfer window the English newspaper also reports.
Should Bournemouth give the ok, it would not be a surprise to see Fraser end up at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium if the Lilywhites really are interested in him.
They managed to reach this year’s Champions League final and will be in the competition again next season while they also have a shrewd coach in Mauricio Pochettino running the show. Who would not want to work with the Argentine right now?
Even so, you cannot help but feel the Emirates would be a much better destination for the former Aberdeen man. He has a much better chance of nailing down a regular spot in an Arsenal team that needs to be rebuilt than a Tottenham side whose attack looks complete.
For as good as Fraser was in the recently completed Premier League campaign, the likes of Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura are probably a level above. Ousting either out of the starting XI will be no easy task.
Ultimately, if Fraser is to leave the Vitality Stadium this summer, then Arsenal would be his best bet if it comes down to a straight shootout between the two north London rivals.
