Arsenal target Ryan Fraser distracted by transfer talk

Ryan Fraser news

Cherries star Fraser wanted by Arsenal?

Bournemouth attacking midfielder Ryan Fraser has admitted that all of the talk related to him moving away from the club has distracted him and impacted his form. Fraser was in target in the 5-0 drubbing of Brighton this past weekend.

Fraser has emerged as a target for Arsenal thanks to his recent 11 assist haul and after bagging another goal in a win at Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

The impressive midfielder, who has caught the eye of several other Premier League teams, admits that the interest from elsewhere is a distraction but he is focused on his current role at the Cherries.

"Maybe it hasn't helped," Fraser told BBC Sport. "Subconsciously, you might think about it. I'm just trying to get on with my work. Every player says that. 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."

It is understood that Bournemouth would be willing to part with the attacker if a club is able to match their £25 million valuation.
