But Gunners’ Rivals Are Also Keen
Arsenal transfer target Ryan Fraser is ready to quit Bournemouth for a top-six club according to one newspaper report today.
The Scotland international has been monitored extensively by the Gunners in recent months. His current deal with the Cherries runs to the end of next season and having rejected a new deal last summer there are no plans for fresh talks.
The Daily Mirror claims Fraser is now preparing for an exit this summer.
However, Arsenal will face competition for his signature. Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are now being linked with the 25-year-old who Bournemouth signed for just £400,000 from Aberdeen in 2013.
Fraser has scored seven goals so far this season, but his figure of 13 assists puts him joint-top of the Premier League assists table alongside Eden Hazard.
PSG Fans Call For Nkunku To Be Sold
Arsenal are also being linked with Paris Saint-Germain central defender Christopher Nkunku. The 21-year-old has suffered a backlash from the French club’s supporters after missing the decisive penalty in Saturday’s French Cup Final defeat to Rennes.
Nkunku was a January transfer target for Arsenal but PSG fans have called on Twitter for him to be sold to the Gunners following Saturday’s defeat. He was already considering his future after failing to nail down a place in the regular starting line-up.
