West Bromwich Albion are reportedly rivalling both newly-promoted sides Leeds United and Fulham in the race to sign free agent Ryan Fraser as the former Bournemouth ace looks for a new home – and Baggies fans have reacted.
Fraser, 26, has been widely criticised for deciding against playing for Bournemouth in their fight against relegation after the restart. With the Scot set to leave, he chose not to risk injury as he looked to push through a move.
Now a free agent, interest from both Tottenham and Arsenal has cooled in the winger – according to 90Min. Fraser’s hopes of a side challenging for European football seem long gone, which Bournemouth fans may see as karma.
The report claims Leeds, West Brom and Fulham all want to sign Fraser, who has had a hand in 45 goals during his 120 Premier League appearances for Bournemouth. Newcastle, West Ham and Brighton remain keen.
It is unclear how much Fraser would want in terms of wages, though his reported demands of £100,000k-a week earlier this summer look unlikely – given a move to the likes of Spurs or Arsenal have hit the skids.
West Brom supporters reacted to the reported news that the Baggies could go after Scotland international Fraser this summer, and many are desperate to see them beat Leeds and land the tricky wide man.
Would be a class signing if his wages aren’t too much

A lot of the big boys have cooled interest in him, didn’t have a great season last season. On the right wages he would be a great signing

Would be a great signing but really can't see it happening.
