Liverpool ready to hijack Arsenal move for impressive £30m Premier League winger?
Shock reports have claimed Liverpool have joined the race to sign Arsenal target Ryan Fraser from Bournemouth this summer.
With Gunners boss Unai Emery seeking to add a bit more width and creativity to his Gunners attack, there has been some speculation in the media over the past few weeks which have suggested the Gunners 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 Chelsea and Liverpool, who are both seeking to bolster their squads in the coming weeks of the window.
Now The Sun, Liverpool are now considering a move for Fraser and are keeping tabs on his situation at Bournemouth, and the report claims that a bid of £30 million will be enough to convince Bournemouth to sell.
Despite all the transfer links with the games biggest clubs, Fraser has admitted that he has yet to make a decision on his future.
‘I’ve got a year left,’ he recently 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.’
Fraser has had a very impressive season for Bournemouth this season and is seriously ready to take that next step up to the highest level of the game. And with Liverpool just the type of club that suits his style of play, he would be a very good addition to the Reds squad.
However, his decision will come down to game time as a move to Arsenal would guarantee more game time then if he were to move to Liverpool, especially as Jurgen Klopp has the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah in the squad.
