The Mirror reported earlier this year that West Ham want to sign the Bournemouth ace in the summer.

Fraser will be available on a free transfer when his contract with the Cherries expires at the end of the season.

And the chance to snap him up for nothing will be a very attractive proposition for West Ham, given the current climate.

Astonishing statistic shows just how good Fraser is

According to only Manchester City’s world class midfield superstar Kevin de Bruyne has created more clear cut chances since the start of LAST season (2018/19).

Fraser has created 33 clear cut chances between August 2018 and now.

And KDB only has one more than him with 34.


It is some statistic. KDB grabs the headlines because most of the chances he creates are converted by City’s world class strikers.

Whereas Fraser does not have the same level of strikers in his struggling Bournemouth side.

Fraser stats will be a big problem for Hammers

With Andriy Yarmolenko, Manuel Lanzini and Felipe Anderson all potentially for sale in the summer West Ham will be in need of a playmaker.

And as the stat shows, they don’t come much better than Fraser.

And therein lies West Ham’s problem.

There are already whispers Arsenal will rival West Ham for Fraser’s signature (Daily Mail).

And with the global health crisis impacting finances across football, there will likely be more clubs joining the race.
