Arsenal have been linked again with a move for Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser.
The 25-year old Scottish international was linked with a move to the Emirates earlier in the transfer window, before the Gunner turned their attentions to Wilfried Zaha instead.
However, having had an initial offer of £40 million for the Ivorian forward turned down flat by Palace, who are demanding a fee twice that amount, they are considering Fraser again as a cheaper option.
Fraser had an impressive campaign for Bournemouth last campaign, scoring seven times and providing seventeen assists. The South Coast side would like to keep him and have offered the player a contract extension. However, Fraser has refused to sign it and, with his current deal running out next summer, they would rather sell him now than lose him on a free in 12 months’ time.
Bought for £400,000 from Aberdeen six years ago, Fraser would probably command a transfer fee of £20 million.
