JACK Wilshere says former Cherries team-mate Ryan Fraser would be a "great signing" for Arsenal.

The Scotland winger has been linked with a switch to the Gunners this summer as he heads into the final year of his contract at Vitality Stadium.

Fraser, 25, spent a season playing alongside Wilshere when the midfielder was on loan in Dorset from the Gunners for the 2016-17 campaign.

Now plying his trade at West Ham, Arsenal academy product Wilshere feels Fraser would be a good addition to the Gunners.

He told football.london: "I think Ryan Fraser would be a great signing.

"I know him well. He's probably the hardest working player I've ever worked with.

"He's got an exceptional attitude. On the pitch he runs around all day.

"He's the first one on the pitch in the morning and the last one off it.

"His physical attributes have really come on. He's really improved that side of his game.

"Technically he's really come on. You can see that by all the chances he created last year. You can see that by the large number of assists he got last season.

"That's credit to him and Eddie (Howe). Eddie put a lot of trust in him and it's been rewarded.

"He's nurtured him and he's turned him into a top player and if he goes to Arsenal, I wish him all the luck in the world as he's a great guy and a great player."

He added: "Ryan would be the ideal candidate to load the bullets for Aubameyang and Lacazette to fire up front.

"Imagine him and Ozil in the side. Imagine the number of chances they would create for the strikers."
