Report: Manchester United have looked at Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the head coach

Ryan Fraser is on the radar of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United, though the Premier League giants are expected to sign Swansea's Dan James.

Manchester United considered making a move for Bournemouth flyer Ryan Fraser this summer, according to The Standard, before turning their attention to Swansea City winger Daniel James instead.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces a huge challenge during his first transfer window as the permanent United boss. And it is reported that the club legend is prioritising young, up and coming talents as he looks to overhaul an ailing squad with United's recent ‘Galactico’ transfer policy falling flat.

 

And The Standard claims that Scotland international Fraser caught United’s eye after a season in which he established himself as one of the Premier League’s most influential attackers.

Only Eden Hazard produced more assists than Fraser’s 14 during the 2018/19 campaign with the former Aberdeen youngster forming a superb understanding with Callum Wilson and Josh King.

According to The Standard, however, Manchester United have decided to make Wales international James their top target instead as he is likely to be a lot cheaper than Fraser.

The Swansea star has just one year left on his contract at the Liberty Stadium and is expected to cost in the region of £15 million.
