Impressive Prem star Fraser sends summer transfer message to Chelsea as Sarri wants deal done
Ryan Fraser has told the likes of Chelsea that he could remain at Bournemouth during the summer transfer window.
With Blues boss Maurizio sarri seeking to add a bit more width and creativity to his BLUES attack, there has been some speculation in the media over the past few weeks which have suggested the Blues could make a move to try and sign Fraser for a fee of £25 million.
Fraser has scored seven goals and registered 14 assists this term and the Scotland international has also caught the attentions of Arsenal and Liverpool. But he has admitted that he is yet to make a definitive decision on his future.
‘I’ve got a year left,’ he said in the Sky Sports news website.
“There’s a very good chance I’ll be here next season. If that’s that then I’m going to try my best as I always do and I’ll enjoy it. I love the group here and the fans. There’s no bad side to what’s happening.
‘There’s a good chance I’ll be here next season and I’ll try and beat my assists record next season as well.’
Asked if the recent speculation regarding his future has been a distraction, he added: ‘Not at all. ‘I just love playing football so I just go and play football. I go out on the pitch and try my best and that’s all anyone can do.
‘There’s no point in putting stress on yourself or burdens. If you’re going out to enjoy football, what’s the worst that can happen? You have a bad game.
‘There’s a lot of things worse in the world than that.’
It is no secret in the media that Hazard could be heading to Real Madrid at the end of the season, and with Pedro coming towards the back-end of his playing days at the very highest level, a fresh face will be needed at Stamford Bridge.
He would not command a big fee, around £20 million and his wages will be pretty modest compared to what some of the Arsenal and Chelsea players are currently getting, so if the Chelsea boss does want to add some width to the side, maybe its better to sign a player that has proven very capable in the premier League, and with a lower placed side.
It would be a risk for Chelsea or Arsenal to buy Fraser, but it would be more of a risk to sign a winger from the French League or Spanish League for double the money and half the productivity.
