- Ryan Fraser could leave for free next summer
AFC Bournemouth are in no hurry to sell their prized asset Ryan Fraser and are even open to let him leave for free next summer once his contract expires with the Cherries.
Bournemouth earlier let go of Tyrone Mings for £26million and hence, have no intentions to rush for another transfer to cash in before they can find any replacements.
- Arsenal defender Laurent Koscienly wants-away
Arsenal’s French defender Laurent Koscienly is reportedly eager to move away from Arsenal and has even refused to be a part of the pre-season games. The French defender is even ready to buy out his contract as he looks to leave this summer.
Arsenal haven’t received any official bids yet but seem to be unwilling to let go of him, especially until they finalise on another defender.
He recently entered the final 12 months of his deal, which is worth a reported £90,000-a-week.
- Arsenal preparing a new bid for Zaha which would include three players
Arsenal are desperately in pursuit of quality talent in the attacking third and are very keen on Wilfried Zaha. The earlier move for Zaha was rejected as Arsenal tabled a £40m bid which didn’t appease the Crystal Palace Management.
With limited budget at their disposal, Arsenal are preparing an improved bid with would include Calum Chambers, Carl Jenkinson and Mohamed Elneny in the offer.
