Liverpool in advanced talks with 25-year-old Scotland international

Merseyside club are in advanced talks with Bournemouth regarding a deal for Ryan Fraser in winter, which could see Harry Wilson making his loan switch to the Vitality Stadium permanent.

Scotland international was one of the standout performers in the PL last campaign, producing 14 assists. Although Ryan stayed put at the club, he has not yet recaptured last campaign’s form, managing only a goal and two assists in 11 matches this campaign.

Fraser’s contract expires at the end of the campaign, and the report claims that the Merseyside club are interested in a bargain deal in winter, with the Cherries willing to cash in on the 25-year-old winger while they can.

Harry Wilson, 22, is currently on loan at Bournemouth, impressing so far this campaign with four PL goals in 11 games. Truly, the swap deal will be a win-win situation for all the sides involved. With injuries and fatigue guaranteed, Scottish winger could be an exciting option to freshen up his front-line in the New Year.

Predominantly a left-winger, Ryan can play on the right flank, in a midfield three, as a no.10 or in a wing-back position. That only speaks volumes about his versatility. Fraser may not have set the world alight this campaign, but last campaign’s tally of 14 assists gives an idea about his creativity in the attack.

Following Philippe Coutinho’s departure last year, Liverpool have found it difficult to open up clubs that sit in low blocks and Ryan could be the Brazilian’s potential replacement while being a top option from the bench as well.
