Tottenham Hotspur are ready to make Ryan Fraser an ‘enticing’ offer to move to north London, according to Football Insider.
A source told Football Insider that the Lilywhites are prepared to offer the Cherries star a lucrative deal after Jose Mourinho identified him on his shortlist of transfer targets.
Earlier this month, the Daily Star reported that Spurs are the frontrunners to sign the Scottish winger, and this move could benefit Son Heung-min in the long run.
While it is fair to say that the Scotsman has struggled for consistency in this campaign, as he has returned just one goal and four assists so far, it is worth remembering that he scored seven goals and created 14 assists in the Premier League last season, beaten only by former Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard for the latter metric. Also, he seems a tremendously reliable player given that he last picked up an injury all the way back in 2015.
In comparison, Son is Tottenham’s second-highest goalscorer this season, just one goal behind Harry Kane, while he has provided more assists than the club captain up until now. Furthermore, the South Korean international has bagged nine goals and produced seven assists in the English top flight, registering three shots per game, averaging more than one key pass and completing at least two dribbles per match on average (via WhoScored).
Spurs are reportedly keen to secure an agreement for Fraser as soon as possible. The 26-year-old will become a free agent when his contract runs out, which would make him a shrewd investment if he ends up at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Moreover, Mourinho has been hampered by a string of injuries to a number of his options on the flanks. Indeed, Son and Steven Bergwijn are finally returning from spells on the sidelines, which will no doubt give the side a massive boost as Spurs had suffered from several poor results in their absence.
Bearing this in mind, Fraser can provide able cover for the wide forwards, and signing the speedster makes perfect sense. It is fair to say the South Korean has been an integral part of the squad over the years, and the Scottish winger could ease help to ease the burden on him next season.
Whether or not he lives up to expectations remains to be seen but, if the transfer goes through, the Lilywhites will have gained a valuable asset at no extra cost.
