Fraser is nearing the final year of his contract with Bournemouth and has sparked summer transfer talk as a result.
The club have come out to clarify their position regarding Fraser’s future, with the Scotland international continuing to be linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium.
At the moment, the winger is approaching the final year of his current deal with the Cherries. A new contract is on the table but it is yet to be signed and exit talk has grown as a result.
Fraser is open with the talk linking him with a move to Arsenal but doubts a move at the mooted £30 fee will be made.
The situation seems to continue for some time but Bournemouth are insistent that they are doing everything to keep their prized asset.
A statement released on the club’s official website by chief executive Neil Blak read:
“Much has been written and spoken about the future of Ryan Fraser, as his contract with AFC Bournemouth heads into its final 12 months.
“As is the club’s policy, details regarding contract negotiations or transfer activity are kept confidential and do not enter the public domain.
“However, following some recent reports I felt it was imperative to speak publicly and provide balanced clarity on the situation.
“The offer of a new long-term contract has been on the table for Ryan for some time.
“In September 2018, at the request of Ryan’s representative, negotiations were paused to allow the player to focus entirely on his football.
“He went on to have an outstanding season, with seven goals and 13 assists helping the club secure a fifth successive season of Premier League football.
“During that time, I have been – and continue to be – in regular dialogue with Ryan’s representative, and have made it clear to both him and the player that our contract offer remains on the table.
“Quite simply, Ryan is a fantastic player and an integral part of our squad. We look forward to welcoming Ryan back to us next month after a well-earned break, upon which he can focus on having another standout season for AFC Bournemouth.”
Fraser has been with the Cherries since 2013, helping them to rise from League One to the top flight. He scored 8 goals and provided 15 assists last season.
