Leeds United are now looking to sign Ryan Fraser on a free transfer, according to 90 Minutes.

Fraser’s contract with Bournemouth has expired, and the winger is now one of the most in-demand players in England, with Leeds joining the race for his signature.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side will have to compete with the likes of West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United to land the 26-year-old, but they are now hopeful that a deal could be done.

If Fraser was to join Leeds he could be a good fit for Bielsa’s system, given his pace and boundless energy.

Fraser provided 14 assists for Bournemouth just two seasons ago, and has proven that he can be a massive threat at Premier League level.

When Eddie Howe was in charge at Bournemouth he was keen keep Fraser, who he called an ‘incredible talent’ to BBC Sport, but the club simply could not agree to his terms.

Fraser was seemingly eyeing up a big move to a top six club, but Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have now apparently pulled out of the race to sign him.

That does make things slightly easier for Leeds, as they battle to attract him to Elland Road.

But any deal for Fraser is likely to take a while to complete, due to sheer number of clubs who are keen to sign him this summer.
