Arsenal have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Ryan Fraser after the winger admitted that he is likely to stay at Bournemouth for another season.
The Gunners have the Scotland international on their summer shortlist but Bournemouth are demanding £30 million for the 25-year-old.
Fraser has just a year remaining on his contract with Eddie Howes side and will leave on a free transfer next summer if he fails to agree a new deal.
And the winger has suggested that he does not expect to join Arsenal ahead of the new season.
The likelihood is I will be at Bournemouth for another year, said Fraser.
And what will happen, will happen.
