Report: Leeds join Ryan Fraser race along with West Brom

Leeds United have entered the race to sign Ryan Fraser on a free transfer this summer, with 90 Min reporting that West Bromwich Albion and Fulham have also joined the running.

Fraser has not made an appearance since March having decided to not extend his Bournemouth contract for the final stages of last season.

But that has not stopped a number of top flight teams from monitoring the winger this summer.

According to 90 Min, Leeds are rivalling the likes of West Ham and Newcastle United for the 26-year-old, who scored once and provided four assists in the Premier League this past season.

It is also suggested by 90 Min that the two sides that subsequently joined the Whites at English football’s top table are also tracking Fraser.

TBR View: Leeds move would come as surprise

Fraser is certainly a talented player. But one of the reasons that he is tempting so many teams to register an interest is surely his availability.

In a summer in which many clubs will be looking to keep costs down, signing Fraser on a free transfer looks particularly appealing.

 

Nevertheless, it would still arguably be extremely surprising if Leeds were the team to land the Scotland international.

As reported by The Sun earlier this month, Fraser rejected a £67,000-a-week contract from the Cherries. And he was reportedly initially looking at earning around £100,000-a-week.

Even if his wage demands drop significantly, Leeds would surely have little interest in going near those figures.

They could, of course, perhaps be hoping that Fraser is willing to compromise to get a move done. But with so many clubs trying to secure his signature, the wide-man may remain optimistic that he can still secure an extremely lucrative contract.
