Fraser is ready for a new challenge with his Bournemouth contract about to expire. Jose Mourinho is aware that he will be limited to swap deals and signing free agents in the upcoming window, as his budget has been slashed due to the economic uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
Spurs and their bitter rivals Arsenal have seemingly been locked in a transfer battle for the winger, but he is reportedly no longer considered a top target by Tottenham, despite the fact he will soon be available for free.
Although initial reports suggested that the Lilywhites are prepared to offer the Cherries star a lucrative deal, it appears that Mourinho has more pressing matters on his mind.
Indeed, Spurs should perhaps turn their attentions to Fraser’s teammate Nathan Ake instead to plug the gap. The former Chelsea defender impressed on loan at the south coast side before joining the club for £20m and he could be the ideal replacement for the Belgian veteran.
Ake is valued at £25m via Transfermarkt and it is likely that he won’t come cheap, but he could turn out to be a shrewd investment in the future.
Even in the unlikely event that such a move doesn’t work out for him, a player of his calibre could still be sold on for a greater profit, so the board don’t have much to lose.
