Ryan Fraser has been discussing his suggested transfer links to Arsenal and admitted the rumours are distracting.
The Bournemouth forward has been one of Eddie Howe’s most impressive performers this season as the Cherries continue to defy the odds.
Fraser has since been linked with a move to the Emirates with Unai Emery keen to bolster his forward line this summer.
Danny Welbeck is expected to be released at the end of the season and both Ryan Fraser and Lyon’s Moussa Dembele have been tipped as potential replacements.
And Fraser admits, talk of a move to Arsenal has distracted him.
“Maybe it hasn’t helped. Subconsciously, you might think about it. I’m just trying to get on with my work. Every player says that,” Fraser told BBC Sport (via Mirror).
“At the same time, I think the best thing I can do is play well on the pitch. There’s no point in stuff coming out and then I start to have bad games.”
