West Ham to challenge Arsenal and Liverpool for winger?

According to the Mirror, West Ham United have expressed an “interest” in Bournemouth winger, Ryan Fraser. If the Irons are to complete the signing of the Scottish international, they will have to fend off interest from Liverpool and Arsenal.

Fraser, who is out of contract in the summer, would be available to sign for much less than the normal price for a player of his quality. According to reports, West Ham manager David Moyes has set his site on young, mobile players – requirements which Fraser most certainly meets.

That said, Fraser hasn’t exactly set the world alight so far this season. As a part of a struggling Bournemouth side, Fraser has managed just one goal and three assists in 26 appearances across all competitions for the Cherries.

West Ham fishing with the big boys

However, given the fact Fraser’s contract is running down and he is available on the cheap, that hasn’t put the Hammers off, and nor should it either. He’s a good alternative to the current wide options West Ham have – and might allow a slight change in system.

In the 4-1 defeat to Leicester last night, West Ham lined up with a five man back line, playing with wing-backs. Robert Snodgrass and Manuel Lanzini were both in there to drift into the wide areas, but no out-and-out wingers, which Fraser would allow.

For me, this is a great signing for West Ham if they can pull it off – but they will need to be hasty with it. Fraser will have no shortage of admirers and if Arsenal and Liverpool are sniffing around, they will NEED to get this deal done as soon as they possibly can.
