Fraser has become one of the top targets in the Premier League as he will be out of contract at Bournemouth by the end of June. The winger is keen to move to Tottenham when the transfer market opens but Mourinho is doubtful of his pedigree and rivals Arsenal have retracted their interest.
As it stands, Crystal Palace are set to launch a bid for the Cherries star, as Roy Hodgson has indicated he thinks highly of the Scottish international.
The Portuguese boss will have to cope with a tight budget as Daniel Levy looks to balance the books due to financial pressures from the coronavirus pandemic and Spurs could lure Fraser to north London with the prospect of Champions League football.
However, the Eagles would be able to offer the 26-year-old a starting spot, although Bournemouth have not given up their hopes of convincing the speedster to extend his stay at the Vitality Stadium. His current market value is estimated at £15.75m via Transfermarkt.
Football pundit Ricky Sacks tweeted the news on social media: “Ryan Fraser favours a move to Tottenham Hotspur over any other club this summer. However Spurs head coach Josè Mourinho is not convinced at present the Bournemouth midfielder has enough quality in order to take the club forward in his position.”
Unsurprisingly, loads of Spurs fans blasted Fraser’s transfer update, with one fan tweeting “he’s rubbish” and another believing that he is “not good enough”.

Not good enough, not a home grown player, don’t see this happening

We don’t need another winger.

Be rotation option at best. Better to invest in the future not short term. Besides we already have Lamela and Moura to play the right wing role

We need a freshen up with youth and quality. Fraser doesn’t match up to either.

If he was any good, a club like Bournemouth would’ve have let him go for free. They would’ve extended his contract or at least sold him last transfer window for any sum

Not good enough
