Sources: Tottenham handed huge boost in bid to sign 26-yr-old after talks

Tottenham have been handed a massive boost in their bid to sign Ryan Fraser this summer after talks with Bournemouth indicated he won’t sign a contract extension, Football Insider can reveal.

The Londoners are among a number of leading Premier League clubs chasing the winger, 26, ahead of the summer window.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Fraser is worried about getting injured ahead of a blockbuster move and has told the Cherries he does not plan to sign a short-term Cherries extension to complete the season.

That would be a huge blow to manager Eddie Howe, who regards Fraser as one of the key players in his side’s Premier League survival bid.

It means the Scotland wide man would be available on a free transfer from 1 July, although he would not be able to play for a new club until next season.

Spurs are eager to offer a lucrative long-term contract to the proven performer to beat off the competition for his services.

Football Insider revealed in April Fraser has told friends he’s keen to join Tottenham if they make a move for him.

This site revealed the left-footed winger changed agents back in January and that work is taking place behind the scenes on securing him a free transfer to a leading Premier League team.

There is also interest in him from Arsenal, Everton and Newcastle United as well as West Ham.

Bournemouth have attempted to tie Fraser down to a long-term deal but he has made up his mind to quit after seven years.

 

The long-serving Cherries ace had an amazing 2018-19 season, when he scored seven goals from 38 Premier League games as well as supplied 14 assists, a number bettered only by Eden Hazard.

He has been unable to hit the same heights this term, with his 32 matches in all competitions, including 21 league starts, yielding one goal and four assists.
