Former PL defender Jason Cundy believes Bournemouth attacker Ryan Fraser would be a no-brainer signing for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool as back-up to stars such as attackers Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
It has been stated that European champions Liverpool are in advanced negotiations to land 25-year-old forward Fraser from league rivals Bournemouth.
Fraser is out of contract at the end of the campaign, having resisted signing a new deal at the Cherries, and it has been stated Liverpool could sign him in the January transfer market.
Ex-Premier League defender Cundy rates the Scot and believes he is well equipped to step in for Liverpool stars Mane and Salah if either of them becomes unavailable.
Cundy is of the opinion that Ryan would provide Liverpool with a good option for a small sum and feels the move is a no-brainer for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
“I think, he [Fraser] is exactly the sort of player that Liverpool need if one of those players out wide, whether it be Mane, whether it be Salah, [is injured or unavailable]”, Jason said on talkSPORT.
“He’s got the raw minerals actually to step in. He’s quick with the ball, travels with it, he’s got brilliant delivery. I can see it. I mean, it’s a no-brainer, as far as I can see.
“Certainly the price tag won’t be expensive and he can sign for four to five years and they’ll still have a residue value on him. So, it makes perfect sense for me.”
Fraser has featured in over 100 appearances in the Premier League with Bournemouth and chipped in with a superb 14 PL assists the last term.
