Ryan Fraser has reportedly told his friends he wants to join Arsenal this summer.
The Gunners are expected to make a £20million move for the Bournemouth winger, who has just a year remaining on his contract, and they will be boosted by this latest revelation.
Football Insider report that a number of teams are keen on Fraser, but the Scotland international wants to secure a switch to the Emirates Stadium.
Fraser caught the eye with performances for Bournemouth last season and other clubs have been looking as Tottenham have also scouted him.
But the Gunners are keen to win the race for the talented forward, and are in the process of beginning negotiations with their Premier League rivals.
Despite the interest, the winger, currently on international duty with Scotland, has remained tight-lipped on where he’ll be playing his football next season.
“The lads have been asking,” Fraser told BBC Scotland.
“I don’t know myself so there’s no point thinking about it, wherever I’ll be, I’ll be. I don’t know what is happening. I’m not just saying that.
“Wherever I’ll be, if it’s Bournemouth or if it’s at somebody else, then all you can do is try your best and enjoy football.
“If you think about anything else, I’ll probably have a bad game.”
The Cherries value Fraser at £30million, particular as Aberdeen are owed around 20 per cent of the fee as part of a sell-on clause.
