A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on reported Toffees target Ryan Fraser and his apparent request for wages of over £100,000-a-week.
The 26-year-old winger, who has been linked with numerous clubs over the past few months, has turned down the offer of a short-term contract at Bournemouth for the rest of the season.
According to the Daily Mail, Fraser has his heart set on a move to Everton, while Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have also been linked with the Scotland international.
However, a report from The Times suggests that the Goodison Park side is not “actively interested” in Fraser.
His £100,000-a-week wage demands are reportedly considered too high and Carlo Ancelotti apparently wants a left-footed right-winger, not a right-footed left-winger, this summer.
Fraser, currently believed to be on £27,000-a-week at Bournemouth, joined the Cherries in January 2013 from Aberdeen.
Fraser was impressive last season, registering seven goals and 14 assists in the Premier League, but this term has yielded just one goal and four assists in the top flight.
But what have Everton fans made of these latest reports? Below is some of the social media reaction:

He should be more interested in playing than demanding 100k a week, he’s a millionaire already so just enjoy your football

I would hope that under Carlo, we are setting our sights higher than Fraser. Yes, under previous managers, we would have had a punt, and to be fair he’s not a bad player, but if we want to get to the next level, then he is not the answer.

No chance he’ll probably do his knee in about the first four games and never played for us for 18 months as well
