Tottenham target Ryan Fraser wants Everton transfer in the summer
According to a report from the Daily Mail, Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser, who is out of contract at the end of the month and has been linked with Tottenham Hotspur, prefers a transfer to Everton instead.
Fraser has been with the Cherries since 2013. He has made 208 appearances for the South Coast club, contributing with 24 goals and 33 assists.
In the ongoing campaign, the Scotsman has produced a return of a solitary goal and four assists in 32 appearances across all competitions. The 26-year-old’s deal with Bournemouth is on the verge of expiry. It is being claimed that the 26-year-old Scotsman has refused a short-term extension with the club to see out the 2019/20 campaign.
The Scotland international’s contract situation has led him to being linked heavily with a move to Tottenham in recent weeks. Reports had even claimed that Fraser had his heart set on a transfer to Spurs, with Daniel Levy readying a lucrative contract to sign him up.
However, as per the aforementioned report, Fraser has had a change of heart and is now keen on securing a transfer to Everton instead.
This development is set to come as a blow for Tottenham. While there is no urgent need of a new winger, adding depth is important if we are to compete on multiple fronts. Fraser, to that end, would have been a good addition, given his age and experience in the Premier League.
