Arsenal have reportedly decided to revive their interest in Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser after failing to find the breakthrough in negotiations for Wilfried Zaha.

Zaha has been identified as the club's prime transfer target for the summer but their initial £40m bid has been knocked back by Crystal Palace, who are said to demand double the figure.

According to The Mirror, the Gunners have second thoughts over making a renewed move for Zaha and they may instead turn their attention towards landing Fraser.

The Cherries are currently reluctant to consider any offers for the Scotland international, but it is reported that the the Gunners may test their resolve with a £20m bid.

Fraser has just 12 months remaining on his contract with Bournemouth and so far, he has shown no indication that he would be prepared to extend his stay beyond the length of the existing deal.

The Scot was only one assist behind Eden Hazard with 14 during the previous Premier League campaign while he contributed a further seven goals to the team's cause.
