Bournemouth star Ryan Fraser has admitted he has found the speculation linking him to Arsenal distracting.
“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.
“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.”
Arsenal has long been linked with Fraser. The Gunners are considering him as a replacement for Danny Welbeck.
