Liverpool are in advanced talks to sign Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser in the January transfer window.
The Scottish international is out of contract with the South Coast side in the summer, and had previously linked with moves to Manchester United, and, in particular Arsenal, before the Gunners turned to Nicolas Pépé instead.
25-year old Fraser scored 8 times and provided 15 assists for Bournemouth in all competitions last season, with 14 of those coming in the Premier League, making him, statistically at least, the second most creative player in the division behind Eden Hazard.
He has had a less impressive return this campaign , providing just one goal and two assists, as his form appeared to suffer in the wake of all the transfer speculation during the summer months. Nevertheless, Liverpool have seen enough to want to sign him, as Jurgen Klopp looks to strengthen his squad in their bid to finally land the Premier League title.
