Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is unsure if Ryan Fraser will be at the Premier League club next season with the Scottish winger linked with a transfer to Arsenal in the close season.

Fraser, whose contract ends in June next year, told Sky Sports on Friday that he was flattered to be linked with a "massive club" such as Arsenal after British media reported manager Unai Emery was interested in securing his services.

"We have spoken to Ryan and his representatives about his contract. It`s one where we will see what happens," Howe told reporters on Friday.

"There is no doubting Ryan`s quality and how highly we think of him. He is an outstanding talent but it is a two-way prospect to sign a contract, so let`s wait and see."

Fraser, 25, has been one of Bournemouth`s key players this season with six goals and 10 assists in the league.

"Ryan has contributed to the team this season but it`s not the time to talk about speculation," Howe added. "Who knows in the summer? It`s that time of year when things change and we ourselves will be looking to sign players."

Bournemouth, who are 12th in the league standings, host Burnley on Saturday.
