Tottenham Hotspur given hope in Ryan Fraser transfer chase
According to Football Insider (h/t Daily Mail), Bournemouth star Ryan Fraser has revealed to his friends that he is keen to swap the Cherries in favor of a move to North London, amidst interest from Tottenham Hotspur.
In an added boost for Spurs, the 26-year-old could be available for a nominal fee. The Scottish international’s contract at the Vitality Stadium expires this summer, adding his name to the list of free agents to choose from.
A versatile player capable of playing anywhere along the midfield and on the wings, Fraser will be a solid addition, especially in the current market.
The finances of football clubs will be hit by the COVID-19 outbreak. As a result, the upcoming transfer window could be a muted affair. With funds at a premium, swap deals and free agents could be the way forward.
Finding value where it exists!
Spurs look to be doing just that with the likes of Willian and now Fraser being targeted. Not only we would be getting a Premier League proven player in the Scotsman but by signing him on a free, we will free up money for other signings.
With just weeks left on his contract, Spurs can steal a march on their rivals by agreeing on a nominal fee for the player. One point that could go against us is the inability to provide Champions League football.
The player is keen to move to a Champions League side. Given our current position in the league, we are in no position to guarantee him the same.
However, returning to the top tier of European football will be a priority for Spurs. It could help us convince Fraser to join the cause.
Liverpool are among the clubs keen on the player. Fraser will have to settle for a rotational role given the quality at the Reds’ behest. He is far more likely to get more playtime at Spurs.
