Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is said to be keen to bring Ryan Fraser to Anfield from Bournemouth.

Reported Liverpool target Ryan Fraser told the Liverpool Echo that he wanted Jurgen Klopp’s side to win the Premier League this season.

Speaking back in February, Fraser spoke of his admiration for Liverpool’s style of play.

And he threw his backing behind the Reds, as they battled for the Premier League title with Manchester City.

 

“I'd like to see Liverpool win the league,” he said. “I like watching good football. If Man City win it, Man City win it. I like the way Liverpool play. They’ve been waiting for it for a long time, and with the players they’ve got, they’ll do it, I think.”

Liverpool ultimately came short in their bid to win the Premier League title for the first time, as they finished one point behind City. 

Fraser’s comments make hugely interesting reading now that Liverpool are said to be attempting to sign him.

According to The Sun, Liverpool are looking to take the £30 million-rated winger from Bournemouth, despite competition from elsewhere.

Fraser’s public admiration of Liverpool surely puts them in an advantageous position in any negotiations, and he could be an exciting addition to the Reds’ attack.

Fraser has provided 14 assists for Bournemouth over the past campaign, and his pace makes him a real threat to any defence.
