Howe is nearly six years into his second stint at the Vitality Stadium and recently became the longest-serving manager in the Premier League following Arsene Wenger’s departure from Arsenal after 22 years in charge.
Howe says it is tough to imagine himself getting close to Wenger’s mark but hopes to remain at the south-coast club for many more years to come.
The 40-year-old has enjoyed great success with Bournemouth, guiding them to the Premier League for the first time in their history in 2015 and establishing the Cherries as a top-flight club, finishing the most recent season in 12th.
Howe’s performance at Bournemouth has resulted in him being linked with other clubs in the Premier League, including Arsenal and Everton, but he insists his only focus is on improving his current team ahead of the next campaign.
Asked by the Daily Echo if he was happy at Bournemouth, Howe replied: “Certainly from my perspective, I am absolutely focused on the summer.
“I want to make sure we keep improving and evolving and keep moving the team forward as much as we can.
“My only focus is on the future and a big summer in terms of coming back better myself.”
