Bournemouth

Cherries reveal Fraser deal

16th June 2019, 03:37 by Michael Holland

Ryan Fraser still has a contract offer on the table with Bournemouth as they look to fend off interest from Arsenal.

25-year-old Frazer impressed for the Cherries last season, with seven Premier League goals and 14 assists, and his form has led to him being linked with a move away from the Vitality Stadium.

The former Aberdeen midfielder, who joined Bournemouth in 2013, has been linked with a £30million summer move to Arsenal.

Frazer is heading into the final year of his current deal and, in an interview with the Scotsman, he suggested Bournemouth's reported price tag could be putting off potential bidders.

On Saturday, Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake issued a statement to "provide balanced clarity on the situation" as the club prepare for another campaign in the Premier League.

"Much has been written and spoken about the future of Ryan Fraser, as his contract with AFC Bournemouth heads into its final 12 months," Blake said on the Bournemouth website.

"As is the club's policy, details regarding contract negotiations or transfer activity are kept confidential and do not enter the public domain. However, following some recent reports, I felt it was imperative to speak publicly and provide balanced clarity on the situation.

"The offer of a new long-term contract has been on the table for Ryan for some time."

Blake's statement concluded: "Quite simply, Ryan is a fantastic player and an integral part of our squad.

"We look forward to welcoming Ryan back to us next month after a well-earned break, upon which he can focus on having another standout season for AFC Bournemouth."
