Forget Carrasco, Unai Emery eyes move for £20m-rated winger

Arsenal are expected to make a push for Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser. According to the Daily Star as they report Arsenal boss Unai Emery is a big fan of Fraser and has informed the board that he wants the 25-year-old.

Fraser’s current contract expires next summer and Bournemouth are ready to cash-in on the player as he is yet to sign a new contract. Fraser was sensational last season, bringing pace and quality to the attack last season as he linked up with forward Callum Wilson.

It is thought that Arsenal are looking to take advantage of the player’s contract situation and are preparing a transfer fee of £20 million for the forward. Bournemouth are believed to be holding out for a fee of £30 million as both sides have begun talks.

Fraser would be a perfect player for the Gunners as he would bring the width that was missing last season. At 25, the Scottish international is entering his peak and could improve under the tutelage of Unai Emery.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are thought to be closing in on the signing of William Saliba from Saint Etienne as part of their summer spree.

Fraser was exceptional last season, netting seven times and bagging 14 assists.
