LIVERPOOL are reportedly in advanced negotiations with Bournemouth over a deal to bring Ryan Fraser to Anfield in January.
The Scottish international – who was heavily linked with a move to join Arsenal in the summer – is set to become a free agent at the end of the season.
The 25-year-old earned rave reviews last campaign after chipping in with seven goals and 14 assists, but he has failed to hit the heights this term.
He has only mustered up one goal in 11 Premier League games, while he has registered just two assists.
But that hasn’t stopped the Reds from looking to sign him, with talkSPORT revealing that Jurgen Klopp’s side will go all out for him in the New Year.
They claim that the Merseyside outfit are the favourites to land the ex-Ipswich loanee when the window reopens with the Cherries looking to cash in on the player.
Bournemouth were reluctant to let him go in the summer as they hoped he would pen a new deal on the south coast.
But they could now let him depart with the report stating relations between Fraser and Eddie Howe are not as strong as they once were.
It has also been suggested that Bournemouth could look to turn Harry Wilson’s loan spell at the club into a permanent move.
The Welsh international has already fired in four goals and is a key part of Howe’s side having started nine games in the top-flight so far.

It’s unclear whether there would be a fee involved in the potential deal, or if it would be a straight swap between the two clubs.
Speaking of his future at Bournemouth in the summer, Fraser said: “The likelihood is I will be at Bournemouth for another year.
“And what will happen, will happen. That is all I can really say about it. No one has really spoken to me about it.”
