Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Newcastle United target Ryan Fraser is receiving more praise following his performance for Bournemouth during their 5-0 win over Brighton over the weekend.

Sky Sports pundit Phill Babb lauded the attacking qualities of the 25-year-old and boldly claimed that he ticks 'a lot of boxes' when going forward.

The Mirror recently claimed the Cherries are considering whether or not to cash in on Fraser, whose contract runs out next season, with interest rising from the likes of North London duo Arsenal and Spurs

 

Added with that, the Chronicle claims that Newcastle United are considering using their current winger, Matt Ritchie as 'bait' for a cash-plus-player deal for the Scotland international in the summer. 

Speaking to Football Centre on Sky Sports News (15/04/2019 at 12:50 pm), Babb admitted that other big teams will be keeping an eye out for Fraser after another eye-catching performance. 

"There will be [other teams watching him]," Babb told Sky Sports News. "It's going to be difficult [to keep hold of him] because of his pace. He's slipping [for his goal against Brighton] but he still managed to get it up and down the goalkeeper.

"He's got trickery, he's got that energy, assists, passing, vision, he's ticking a lot of boxes. I expect him to move on and there will be definite interest in him this summer from bigger teams."

Last season was a bit of a breakthrough campaign for Fraser at Dean Court, but it is during this season where he has stepped up to another level. 

Over the course of the season, the versatile attacker has played 34 Premier League games for Eddie Howe's side, scoring seven goals and supplying his teammates with 11 assists [transfermarkt]
