Arsenal are tracking Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser ahead of a potential summer move, according to reports.
The Times claim the Gunners are monitoring the Scotland international closely, amid a prolific season in which he has scored six goals and registered 10 assists in the Premier League.
Fraser, 25, is contracted to Bournemouth until 2020, but a host of clubs are interested in signing the former Aberdeen man – with his versatility a huge pull.
With Denis Suarez failing to make an impact at the Emirates following his January loan move from Barcelona, Gunners boss Unai Emery is drawing up a list of alternatives to improve his side’s creativity and dimension from the flanks.

The interest in Fraser comes with Suarez, who also played for Emery during a loan spell at Sevilla in the 2014/15 season, having only made four substitute appearances since arriving in north London.
There is an option to make the deal permanent, but that seems very unlikely to be triggered at this stage.
