Tottenham target Ryan Fraser is close to finalising the terms of a free transfer with one club, according to an exclusive from Football Insider.
Spurs and bitter rivals Arsenal are in a two-horse race to sign Fraser in the summer and the outlet claimed that he is on the brink of joining an unnamed club. The Scotsman’s contract with Bournemouth is set to expire in June, which will make him a free agent in the upcoming transfer window.
A source told reporter Russell Edge that a deal is nearly completed, and it appears the Scottish international will leave the Cherries after a lengthy spell with the south coast side, although it is currently unknown where he will end up.
Although the winger has struggled to make much of an impression for the Cherries this season (just one goal and four assists), it is worth noting the 26-year-old scored seven goals and produced 14 assists in the Premier League last season, finishing closely behind former Chelsea star Eden Hazard.
Unsurprisingly, loads of Spurs fans are buzzing over the transfer update on “work horse” Fraser, with one supporter comparing him to Liverpool ace Xherdan Shaqiri, dubbing him “Shaqiri-esque”, and another believing that he would be an upgrade on Jack Clarke.

Shaquiri esque, could be a good signing

Fraser is much better than Clarke. I don’t think Clarke has a chance at Spurs anymore unfortunately

I heard we’re getting him a few weeks ago. I wouldn’t even mind he’s free and he’s a work horse
