According to a report on Daily Mirror, Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser is willing to quit Bournemouth this summer and join a top Premier League side like Chelsea.

The 25-year-old Scottish international joined Bournemouth from Aberdeen in 2013 and has just over one year left on his contract.

Fraser rejected the offer of a new deal from Bournemouth last year and was originally planning to leave on a free transfer next summer, as his Bournemouth contract runs out in the summer of 2020.

Fraser is now reportedly keen on leaving Bournemouth this summer amid increased interest in him.

Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal have all monitored the progress of the 25-year-old and are reportedly ready to make a move for the Scottish international this summer.

Fraser is ambitious to play for a top six club and wants to make a move this summer while his stock is so high.

The 25-year-old has had an outstanding season for Bournemouth, scoring seven goals and providing 13 assists in the Premier League.

His 13 assists puts him joint top of the assists chart with Eden Hazard above the likes of Christian Eriksen and Raheem Sterling.

Fraser has also created the most big chances in the Premier League — 24 — and teed up Callum Wilson’s late equaliser on Saturday against Southampton.

Fraser is hoping his excellent form will encourage Chelsea and other top sides in the Premier League to tempt Bournemouth with a huge fee for a player with just 12 months left on his deal.

Meanwhile former Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle has claimed the Premier League will Eden Hazard if the Belgian leaves for Real Madrid.

“I think Chelsea will get into the Champions League, whether Hazard will be there with them… I feel it might be the right time for him personally, not for Chelsea or the Premier League, but for him to go to Real Madrid if that offer is there on the table for him,” Hoddle told TSN.

“He deserves to play in that team. They’ve got a re-build going on as well. I personally would love to see him play in the Premier League but I’ve got a feeling he might move. Chelsea, at the moment, there’s something missing but without Hazard in the team and all the hope [goes].

“The only player who was really dangerous for Chelsea when they weren’t playing so well and Manchester United were on top, was Hazard.

“Hazard was doing everything he normally does, he looks sharp, he was beating players, every time he had the ball something was going to happen.

“You take him away from that team at the moment you’ve got a massive hole to fill. ‘Can you fill it? Probably not. And it’s a real big concern for Chelsea at the moment.

“And that’s where I think they are at as a club, they’re at a crossroads. ‘With their owner, the new stadium not coming, there’s a lot of players coming to the end of their contracts, the transfer embargo as well.

“All these things are not positive. The main thing they’ve got to do is switch off from that, win their last two games, get into that top four, or win the Europa League, they are still in a good position to win that. But I think they’ll end up in fourth spot.”
