Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser admits he needs to get back to basics amid ongoing speculation surrounding his future.
The Scotland international has enjoyed his most productive Premier League season to date, scoring six goals and registering 10 assists – only Eden Hazard and Christian Eriksen have provided more.
Fraser’s exceptional has, however, tailed off in recent weeks, coinciding with reports he has been targeted by Arsenal manager Unai Emery who is looking for reinforcements in wide areas this summer having decided not to retain Denis Suarez on a permanent basis following his January loan move from Bournemouth.
‘I’m just trying to get on with my work,’ said Fraser ahead of Saturday’s match against Brighton.
‘Every player says they try to come away from the speculation but at the same time the best thing I can do is concentrate on the pitch.
‘There’s no point in stuff coming out and then I start to have bad games.

‘I love it here, not just the football club but the manager and especially my teammates as well -I’m close with them all.’
Fraser’s current contract expires at the end of next season and Bournemouth are said to remain undecided as to whether to cash in this summer, or risk losing the 25-year-old for nothing in just over 12 month’s time.
