As per a report from the Mirror, Arsenal remain interested in the potential summer signature of Bournemouth star Ryan Fraser.

Bournemouth stint

26-year-old winger Fraser has been plying his trade at the Vitality Stadium since 2013, when he arrived from Aberdeen.

And, after playing a key role in the club’s promotion to the Premier League in 2016, the Scot has since gone from strength to strength.

It was his stellar production last season, though, which saw many begin to stand up and take notice of Fraser’s talents.

Across appearances in all 38 of Bournemouth’s league fixtures (35 starts), the pacy wide-man directly contributed to 21 goals.

His haul of 14 assists, meanwhile, proved the 2nd-highest total in the English top-flight, behind only Eden Hazard.

Arsenal bound?

As such, though the current campaign, amid Bournemouth’s struggles, has not proven quite as fruitful for the Scottish international, the interest of some of England’s biggest clubs in his signature has remained.

Last summer saw Arsenal persistently touted as a potential destination for Fraser, with the Cherries star having also been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in January.

This comes with Fraser’s contract at the Vitality Stadium due to expire this summer.

And, as per the aforementioned report from the Mirror, interest on the part of Arsenal has remained intact ahead of the opening of the off-season transfer window.

The Gunners are said to be continuing to monitor Fraser’s situation, with the insinuation being that the capital giants are ready to swoop if the 26-year-old refuses to put pen-to-paper on fresh terms with Bournemouth.
