The potential transfer has garnered considerable attention within the football sphere. Evidently, Newcastle United is inclined to facilitate Fraser’s departure, primarily stemming from his perceived discord with the team’s current chief, Eddie Howe. Strikingly, despite a history of collaboration during their shared time at Bournemouth, Fraser and Howe underwent a falling out in the preceding term, which has evidently influenced the course of events.
Empoli’s enthusiasm to negotiate a deal with Newcastle United is palpable, albeit with a notable condition attached. The Italian side appears poised to contribute approximately 50 percent of Fraser’s wage package, unveiling a potential compromise that would benefit all involved parties.
