Arsenal end interest in Premier League winger?


Ryan Fraser news

Arsenal won't sign Ryan Fraser this summer

Arsenal have reportedly ended their interest in signing Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser on a free transfer.



The Scotland international has snubbed the option of extending his contract with the Cherries and he will leave the club on a free transfer on July 1.

The Gunners have been one of the clubs credited with an interest in his services but according to The Star, they are unlikely to make the move to sign him next month.

The north London side have been financially hampered due to the coronavirus pandemic and they are reluctant to meet Fraser's £100,000-a-week demands based on his form this term.

Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta is said to be satisfied with the wide attacking options at hand and the focus could instead lie on pursuing a new striker to replace contract rebel Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Fraser has experienced a tough league season where he has bagged just one goal and four assists from 28 outings. Still, he has been fancied to join a bigger club with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Everton said to be interested in him.
