RYAN FRASER has dealt Arsenal a huge blow by admitting any move to the Emirates is probably off.
The Gunners are thought to be closer than any of their top six rivals to launching a bid for Bournemouth’s £30million assist king.
But Scotland winger Fraser, 25, 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."
Earlier this week Fraser admitted he had been left in the dark over his future.
Only Eden Hazard (15) got more assists than Fraser's 14 last season.
And with seven goals, the Cherries ace – who is under contract until next summer – has proven himself a deadly finisher as well.
Arsenal will now most likely focus their efforts on landing Yannick Carrasco from Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang.
Terms have been agreed but the clubs are yet to settle on a fee, with Dalian Yifang refusing to budge on their £25m valuation.
Arsenal only have about £40m to spend this summer after missing out on Champions League football and are trying to seal a season-long loan with an option to buy for the 25-year-old Belgium winger.
