RYAN Fraser says there is a “very good chance” he will still be a Cherries player next season – despite it being the final year of his contract.

The Scot has attracted reported interest from a host of top clubs including Arsenal and Tottenham in recent months, after a scintillating season for Eddie Howe’s men.

Fraser racked up a 14th league assist of the campaign when he delivered Saturday’s 91st minute corner against Spurs, which was headed in by Nathan Ake to earn a 1-0 win.

Only Eden Hazard has provided more assists in the Premier League this season. Fraser has also netted nine goals for club and country this term.

But with just 12 months remaining on Fraser’s current deal, Cherries risk losing him for free next summer, unless they can tie him down to fresh terms.

The winger told the Daily Echo: “I’ve got a year left.

“There’s a very good chance I’ll be here next season.

“If that’s that then I’m going to try my best as I always do and I’ll enjoy it.

“I love the group here and the fans. There’s no bad side to what’s happening.

“There’s a good chance I’ll be here next season and I’ll try and beat my assists record next season as well.”

Asked if the recent speculation regarding his future has been a distraction, he added: “Not at all.

“I just love playing football so I just go and play football. I go out on the pitch and try my best and that’s all anyone can do.

“There’s no point in putting stress on yourself or burdens.

“If you’re going out to enjoy football, what’s the worst that can happen? You have a bad game.

“There’s a lot of things worse in the world than that.”

While Fraser appears relaxed about his future, boss Eddie Howe admits he would love for one of the club’s star men to commit his future to Cherries.

Fraser, 25, was one of Howe’s first signings during his second spell in charge, arriving on the south coast from Aberdeen in January 2013 for a fee of around £400,000.

He helped the club achieve promotion from League One later that year before starring in both the Championship and now top flight and Howe is hoping to keep hold of the winger.

“We would sign Ryan to a new contract tomorrow but that’s obviously a two-way process,” said the Cherries boss.

“The only thing I can say is he’s under contract next season.

“I have no intention of breaking this team up, that’s my wish.

“I want to add the other way and continue to improve us.

“That’s really all I have to comment on it.”

Before Cherries’ win over Spurs, Fraser was presented with three player of the year awards, including the Daily Echo/Micky Cave trophy.

Discussing his campaign as a whole, the Scot said: “I feel like I’m quite modest. You want to do well for yourself, but the team is the most important thing.

“When you do well for the team, then you do well for yourself and then you get recognition for it. It’s always nice.

“It’s not one to get to my head. I’ll take it and thank you very much and thanks to the fans.

“I’ll just work even harder next year.”
