Arsenal will submit their opening offer to Bournemouth for Ryan Fraser after their Europa League clash against Chelsea.
The winger has been one of the Cherries’ key players this term with eight goals and 15 assists and the Scotland international is now one of Unai Emery’s top targets for the summer window.
Bournemouth value the 25-year-old at £30 million, although the attacker has just one year left on his current deal.
According to The Independent, the Gunners are optimistic that they can lower the asking price and are readying to make a move after the Europa League final in Baku.
The report also adds that Manchester United will not challenge their rivals for Ryan Fraser as they have no interest in signing the attacker.
Bournemouth will also have to pay Aberdeen 20 percent of the transfer fee they receive following the agreement they made when the Premier League side signed Ryan Fraser back in 2013.
Ryan Fraser, meanwhile, has also given a clear indication that he would be open to joining Emirates Stadium. ‘I am not going to lie, it is very nice,’ Fraser said last month when asked about being linked with a move to the Gunners.
‘It means you are doing something right. They are a huge club, a massive club. ‘When you see your name thrown around you always think to yourself that you are a Bournemouth player and you try to do well. ‘I am not going to lie, you do feel good, especially when it’s a massive club.’
