Arsenal turn back to Cherries ace

7th July 2019, 09:41 by Michael Holland

Bournemouth star Ryan Fraser is back on Arsenal's radar as their attempts to land Wilfried Zaha look doomed to fail.

The Gunners have made Zaha a top transfer target but are struggling to agree a fee with Crystal Palace, who are demanding big money, so it looks as though they will have to look elsewhere, with Fraser back on the radar.

The Scotland international was a big hit for the Cherries last season when scoring seven goals and providing 13 assists, up there with the best in the Premier League, so it is no surprise the Gunners are keen.

The fact he falls out of contract in 12 months and would not command a huge fee, is also a bonus for Arsenal boss Unai Emery, who is working with a tight budget.

Bournemouth have insisted he is not for sale so trying to strike a deal could be tricky. However the fact he could leave for free this time next year could force their hand as there is no sign of him penning a new contract at the Vitality Stadium.

With that in mind, a fee of £20million could be enough to tempt Bournemouth to sell.
