(Picture: Getty Images)Ryan Fraser may have emerged as one of Arsenal’s top summer transfer targets but the midfielder has questioned the valuation placed on his head by his own club.The Bournemouth ace is wanted by Gunners boss Unai Emery but the Scottish star suspects Arsenal will be priced out of a move.Eddie Howe’s side are demanding £30million for the 25-year-old wide man – a significant portion of Emery’s summer budget.With just 12 months left on his contract, it can be viewed as a steep valuation for the Scotland international and Fraser admitted he can’t see anyone coughing up that sort of money.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT‘I honestly don’t think anyone will be paying that [£30m],’ Fraser told The Scotsman. ‘It was six or seven months ago that we last spoke about my future, but nothing since. Even in the end of season meeting I had with the manager [Eddie Howe], we didn’t speak about my future.

If something happens, it will happen. If it doesn’t, then I’m not one to throw my rattle out of the pram. I’ll keep trying my best. I keep getting things tagged on Instagram that I’m going 
places and I think ‘Am I?’.‘I’ve got a year left with Bournemouth. If I’m there, I’ll give my all. If I’m somewhere else, I’ll give my all. I just want to play well, do my best and work hard for my team-mates.’Fraser admitted he’s happy to be linked with a move away from Dean Court, but insists a summer transfer has not become an obsession.

Local Officials, Business Owners and Organizations Echo Gov. Wolf’s Call to Mask Up, PA

first_img July 03, 2020 Local Officials, Business Owners and Organizations Echo Gov. Wolf’s Call to Mask Up, PA SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Press Release,  Public Health Governor Tom Wolf’s repeated calls to wear a mask and Sec. of Health Dr. Rachel Levine’s latest order requiring masks to be worn at all times in public, combined with scientific proof that masks help stop the spread of COVID-19, are resonating with local elected officials and business owners and organizations, who today echoed the governor’s directives.“Thankfully, out of our 1,100 team members, we have only had seven infections and, more importantly, seven successful recoveries,” said Joseph F. Fasula, co-owner of Gerrity’s Supermarkets. “It is likely that all infections originated outside of the workplace with just one case of employee-to-employee transmission at work. Early on, we made the decision to pursue any sensible solution that would reduce the risk to our customers and to our team. We attribute much of our success in controlling the infection rate to the safety protocols we implemented, including encouraging social distancing, requiring face-coverings, continuous disinfecting, protective barriers, and employee and customer education.”“I support wearing masks when in public,” said Dave Glass, Clearfield County Commissioner. “Wearing a mask helps protect our small business owners and their employees. We all want to keep the local economy as open as possible, and I believe that wearing masks is the best way to ensure that.”“I fully support Governor Wolf in his effort to keep the commonwealth safe,” Jeff Eggleston, Warren County Commissioner said. “Wearing a mask is one of our greatest tools in fighting COVID-19 and ensuring a safer and more efficient reopening of the state.”“I appreciate the clarity that Governor Wolf and Secretary Levine have put forth with this order,” Kathy Dahlkemper, Erie County Executive said. “Scientific evidence is showing that masks help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. I encourage all Erie County residents to wear their masks and comply with the order, so that schools can open, businesses can stay open, and we can save lives.”“Wearing our face coverings is essential to saving our lives, safeguarding our jobs, and reopening our economy in communities and counties across the commonwealth,” Commissioner Mike Pipe of Centre County said. “Let’s stay the course against this pandemic. Let’s not threaten the progress we’ve made, the lives of our neighbors, and our small businesses. Centre County supports the Governor and Secretary of Health with their bold leadership with this new order.”“Wearing masks is essential to a sustained and safe reopening of our economy,” said Matt Smith, President, Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce, an affiliate of the Allegheny Conference. “Mask wearing, along with following social distancing guidelines, is proven to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and the rate of new cases in our community. Masks help us to protect one another, including our most vulnerable neighbors, and our economy. We strongly encourage Pittsburghers region wide to remember we’re all in this together, and by wearing a mask you are showing your strength, respect and collaboration in guarding each other and our economy.”“I’m grateful for Governor Wolf’s and Dr. Levine’s leadership on this issue,” said Bob Harvie, Bucks County Commissioner. “Our fight against the Coronavirus isn’t over. Pennsylvania has made great progress against the spread, and the science is clear that masks are a critical part of that success.”“As a commissioner, I believe it’s extremely important for us to wear masks because as leaders in the community we need to lead by example,” Lycoming County Commissioner Rick Mirabito. “I believe the Governor’s decision to require masks is correct because this virus cannot live on its own; when we wear masks, we prevent the virus from having a host – the virus then dies. We wear masks to protect the most vulnerable among us.”Ver esta página en español.last_img read more
