According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham are keen on signing Ryan Fraser on a free this summer, with the winger’s contract having expired at Bournemouth. And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
David Moyes could be keen to bring another established winger to the London Stadium this summer.
ExWHUemployee recently claimed that West Ham are open to selling Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini and Andriy Yarmolenko.
And if one or two of those players are moved on, Fraser on a free transfer might just be a sensible addition for the Hammers.
His attitude and loyalty has to be called into question, however, having abandoned the Cherries with several games still to be played this season.
The 26-year-old racked up one goal and four assists in 32 games for the Cherries this season (Transfermarkt).
Those numbers are hardly impressive. The Scotland international was on fire last term, however, with seven goals and 14 assists in 38 Premier League outings for the south coast outfit (Transfermarkt).
So perhaps he would be worth taking a punt on.
Fraser’s £100,000 per week wage demands (Times) might just prove to be problematic, however.
And some West Ham fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to Ex’s claim that the diminutive winger might be a target for David Moyes this summer…
No thank you, good player but weak character. First to jump a sinking ship.

As always, Seb, I completely agree with you. Unimpressed with his attitude to leave Bournemouth fighting the drop to look after himself. Not the man you want in the trenches fighting for a win. Interesting to see who’ll want him

Wants too much wages and plays in Diangana’s position

He’s no better than Tom Ince if you leave out last season. He would turn up only once every few games, and I couldn’t see him being half as good as Anderson, but just as inconsistent. Would be glad to be wrong tho.

No where near worth 100k p/w

pls no, he has been so bad this season

I wouldn’t want him anywhere on my team. His attitude stunk this year and not extending his contact was just wrong. His agent is a weasel who has given him bad advice. I hope he has a miserable season wherever he goes. Ake in the other hand is a class act.

Mmmm not sure on the attitude though taking into account what he did to Bournemouth

Wouldn’t sign a short term contract to help Bournemouth, so loyalty not a strong point.

Not for me. Not an amazing player and ditched Bournemouth at the drop of a hat. Just wants a big pay day, hasnt even played that well this season.
