Bournemouth Refuse To Rule Out Summer Sale Of This Winger Amid Arsenal Interest: Boost For Emery?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent interview mentioned by the Express, Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has refused to rule out the possibility of selling Ryan Fraser, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal (via the Express), and said, “It is one where we will see what happens. There is no doubting Ryan’s quality and how highly we think of him.

“He is an outstanding talent but it is a two-way prospect to sign a contract so let’s wait and see.

“Ryan has contributed to the team this season but it’s not the time to talk about speculation.

“Who knows in the summer? It is that time of year when things change and us ourselves will be looking to sign players.”

The Cherries boss’ recent comments will be quite encouraging for the Gunners in their pursuit of the Scottish winger. There is no doubt that Unai Emery’s team can benefit from acquiring the services of someone as effective as what Fraser has been at the Vitality Stadium this season.

Fraser’s Rich Vein Of Form For The Cherries This Season

The Scottish winger has enjoyed a fantastic campaign under Howe’s tutelage which has made him a Fantasy Premier League favourite due to his high level of productivity in the final third. Fraser has put in a series of match-winning displays for the Cherries this term, scoring seven goals while grabbing 11 assists for them in 36 matches across all competitions.

What Will Fraser Add To Emery’s Side?

Fraser is full of energy and running in midfield. He is always willing to take on his markers and beat them using his pace down the wide areas. The Scottish prospect has mainly been quite lethal on the counter when he has been able to link up with the likes of Joshua King, Callum Wilson and David Brooks. One could argue that the Bournemouth talent can perform even better with players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil around him at the Emirates Stadium.

Big Boost For The Gunners?

The 25-year-old has the makings of a reliable winger who would be able to score or assist goals consistently at a club like Arsenal. Hence, his availability in the upcoming summer transfer period would be a massive boost for the North London giants as Fraser is the type of talent who can come in and help them challenge for some major silverware next season.
