Tottenham and Arsenal have both cooled interest in securing the services of Ryan Fraser reportedly.

Both Tottenham and Arsenal have been credited with an interest in the forward, who has found back of the net seven times and provided 14 assists for Eddie Howe’s side in last campaign’s Premier League.

However, according to The Athletic, neither team consider Fraser to be a priority during the summer transfer window and are instead focusing their attentions on other potential additions.

Galatasaray are also believed to be interested in the 26-year-old, who is allegedly keen to make a switch to the Champions League team during the upcoming summer transfer window.

The forward, who has arrived at the Vitality Stadium from Aberdeen in 2013, has only scored one goal in 28 Premier League games this campaign.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly been handed the chance to beat fierce rivals Arsenal to the services of Inter Milan midfielder, Matias Vecino.

The 28-year-old box-to-box midfielder has supposedly garnered interest from the Merseyside Blues as well as the North London pair in recent weeks, and Vecino will see his current contract at Serie A giants end in 2022.

However, according to the Daily Star, the North London club have first refusal on the Uruguay international following previous conversations over a potential switch in the winter transfer window.
