Liverpool and Bournemouth are in advanced talks to secure the transfer of Ryan Fraser to Anfield in the winter transfer window
Jurgen Klopp has been trying to lure the 25-year-old away from Dorset before the beginning of the season, but his efforts have come a cropper, as Bournemouth fought tooth and nail to keep hold of their star forward.
The Cherries have been adamant the winger will not leave the Vitality Stadium in the summer, but his contract situation has made them change their minds.
Fraser will become a free agent at the end of the season, and Bournemouth will be looking to cash in on him in January to avoid losing him for free next summer.

According to TalkSPORT, the Merseyside giants are preparing to launch a January assault on the Scotland international that could include Harry Wilson.
The 22-year-old winger has been impressive for Bournemouth this term, and the Cherries would like to make his loan move from Liverpool permanent.
While Fraser endured a torrid start to the season, Wilson has become Bournemouth’s headline performer, netting four goals in 11 top-flight outings.
Hence, Eddie Howe could reconcile with the loss of his last season’s best player, but only if he was allowed to obtain the Englishman’s services for the long-term.
