Speculation in the English media today suggests that Bournemouth star Ryan Fraser has set his sights on a summer move to Tottenham.
26-year-old winger Fraser has been plying his trade at the Vitality Stadium since 2013, when he arrived from Aberdeen.
And, after playing a key role in the club’s promotion to the Premier League in 2016, the Scot has since gone from strength to strength.
It was his stellar production last season, though, which saw many begin to stand up and take notice of Fraser’s talents.
Across appearances in all 38 of Bournemouth’s league fixtures (35 starts), the pacy wide-man directly contributed to 21 goals.
His haul of 14 assists, meanwhile, proved the 2nd-highest total in the English top-flight, behind only Eden Hazard.

As such, though the current campaign, amid Bournemouth’s struggles, has not proven quite as fruitful for the Scottish international, the interest of some of England’s biggest clubs in his signature has remained.
Last summer saw Arsenal persistently touted as a potential destination for Fraser, with the Cherries star having also been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in January.

This comes with Fraser’s contract at the Vitality Stadium due to expire this summer.
And, as outlined above, if the latest speculation in England over the last 24 hours is to be believed, then a new frontrunner appears to have emerged in the race for the wide-man’s signature.
The outfit in question? Tottenham.
As per a report from Football Insider, Fraser has set his sights on a Lilywhites switch ahead of next season.
In fact, it is claimed that the Scot ‘has told friends he would be keen on joining Tottenham’.
‘A source with knowledge of Fraser’s situation has told Football Insider the Scotland international is eager to join a Champions League calibre club and Spurs would interest him.’
Fraser actually making the move to north London would of course be dependent on the will of Jose Mourinho and co., though FI add that Spurs are ‘expected to be interested’.
