    Could be a shrewd signing next summer.

    Probably Bournemouth’s second best player after Wilson, in a position we could use.

    Also he’s British so fits into our transfer strategy.

    Would be a very good signing on a free.

    Otherwise he's a decent level PL player who wouldn't be worth the audacious PL Premium.

    I assume Bournemouth are working on extending though, no? Callum Wilson - another decent level PL player - got a £100k+ salary very recently, I believe? Could see Fraser easily getting that from them too.

    Good player though.

    I assume he's the same as our other players, prefers to play on the left/does better there.

    Yeah that's what came to my mind. But difficult to pass up on a free. Should definitely be in for him. Not like we have a quality LW

    I'd definitely be up for this.

    We're hardly inundated with them now, with Martial playing down the middle, Sanchez leaving (hopefully for good), and Rashford being pap there.

    They’re meant to be working on a deal for him anyway, they won’t let him go on a free, IMO.

    I'd be looking at when Brook's contract is running out rather than Fraser.

    If we are interested, shouldn't we leave a hint or something, that way he wont sign a new contract.

    He doesn’t really add anything to the side apart from strenght in numbers does he though? He’s very similar to James apart from being left footed.

    With the funds raised from the summer we should be looking to add players capable of pushing the ones we already have down the pecking order.

    I’ll take him for his corner if it means we can finally get someone who can take a corner.

    Yes, Bournemouth’s second best player is exactly who we need to bring back the glory days.

    He'd be a very good signing on a free transfer, but I can't see Bournemouth letting him go for free.

    Sign him up! As an Aberdeen fan I just wish it was this year when they could have got a sell on percentage.

    I'd say let's make a deal with Bournemouth where we give them some money for fraser in exchange of them being realistic on Brooks. An 80m bid for the pair would be great. Brooks would sort our RW while Fraser would release Martial from his LW duties

    Sir Alex signing this one!

    Would be a great addition in the ji-sung, blomqvist mould but will probably go on to start 38 league games for us.

    We've met the quota to have an average Scottish player in the squad. So I don't see this happening.

    Wouldn't mind an internal competition between him and James. Helps the squad too if we are going to proceed with Martial as a central player.

    Decent player but not the one that's going to elevate us to the next level. There isn't much in his game that Dan James doesn't already have.

    Would be a nice depth signing for United or any other team looking for depth. A much better player than Pereria. Would rather have the options of Fraser/James/Chong/Rashford compared to Pereria/James/Chong/Rashford as wide forward players. It's that obvious.

    The sort of player that would suit a team aiming to finish 6th to 8th very nicely.

    As a squad option - yes.

    As a starter - no.

    Would imagine everyone in the top six bar City will all show some kind of interest in this deal. For free and probably wages of around 75k he's a great squad option to have. Has a very good delivery, decent pace and chips in with a few goals.
