Chief football writer John Cross exclusively revealed Tottenham have emerged as serious candidates to sign Fraser this summer after previous interest from rivals Arsenal and Liverpool.
The 26-year-old will be allowed to leave the Vitality Stadium on a free transfer in June as his contract will expire at the end of the month.
Jose Mourinho is no doubt well aware he will have to work around a limited budget as the North London club braces for the economic impact of the pandemic.
Spurs were initially linked to wantaway Chelsea star Willian but the Brazil international rebuffed reports earlier this week (talkSPORT).
Fraser is reportedly keen to play Champions League football in the future and feels Mourinho’s side are his best chance of playing in the top club competition.
Who should Ryan Fraser replace in Tottenham Hotspur's squad?
After arriving at Dean Court from Aberdeen FC for £432k in 2013, the Scotsman has scored 24 goals and created 33 assists for Eddie Howe’s Cherries in all competitions.
As expected, many Spurs fans buzzed over Fraser’s ‘sensible’ transfer update, with one supporter tweeting he is a “better signing than Willian.”

I’ll take him for free, not high wages, good sub and overall he’s alright

Lucas offers nothing 99% of the time as a starter. I'd rather start Fraser as a winger than Lucas. Lucas is much better as a ST or CF, but he really needs to be utilized as a super sub. Fraser is a classic winger w pace who'll whip in accurate crosses from the wing consistently.

Our liability of injuries shows we need squad depth

Better signing than Willian

Would be a solid addition to the squad

Sell one of Moura, Lamela or Sissoko to free up funds to spend elsewhere
Sensible transfer imo
