Report: Arsenal and Tottenham not interested in Ryan Fraser

The duo were thought to be keen last summer but the free agent is not on either radar this time around.

Ryan Fraser is no longer a transfer target for Arsenal or Tottenham this summer, according to The Sun.

The Scottish winger rejected the chance to earn £67,000-a-week at Bournemouth and his decision to leave could now backfire financially.

This time last year, the 26-year-old was linked with Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool, as the player entered the last year of his Cherries contract.

Interest last summer was no surprise with Fraser scoring seven goals and claiming 14 assists during 2018/19.

No club came forward with an offer which tempted Bournemouth into a sale and now the speedster is in limbo.

Crystal Palace are interested but have offered a contract worth closer to £50,000 and it remains to be seen whether they can tempt him to Selhurst Park.

Arsenal and Tottenham won’t be entering the race this summer and based on his 2019/20 campaign it looks like they won’t live to regret their decision.

 

Fraser has managed just one goal and four assists with the offers now appearing to dry up for the man who played over 200 times at the Vitality Stadium.

Arsenal are set to sign Willian on a free transfer and it’s fair to say that looks like a far more exciting deal than one for Fraser.

Since Tottenham’s last interest they have changed manager and Jose Mourinho won’t be asking the club to revive the interest in the player with 11 international appearances.

When the links emerged last year many did fear that Fraser could prove to be a flash in the pan.

His tremendous 2018/19 campaign wasn’t followed up with heroics during the following campaign and he now looks in limbo.

With Arsenal and Tottenham off the table – and Liverpool almost certain not to re-enter the race, Fraser’s future is uncertain.

It will be interesting to see where he does end up, but it won’t be in North London.
