Alexis Claude-Maurice

North London giants Arsenal are reportedly facing a twin threat from the Premier League for Lorient attacker Alexis Claude-Maurice.

According to the publication from WalesOnline, the Gunners will have to fend off two Premier League clubs who are also interested in the young French player just like what’s obtainable with the North Londoners.

Newly promoted Premier League outfit Norwich City as well as Brighton and Hove Albion are the two Premier League sides keen on a summer move for the 20-year-old.

French Ligue 1 outfit OGC Nice are also interested in the player.

Alexis Claude-Maurice could link up with Matteo Guendouzi at Arsenal.

Both players were at Lorient before Guendouzi signed for the Gunners last summer.

French junior international Guendouzi joined Arsenal in a £7m deal last summer and he went on to impress a great deal for the North London giants.

Arsenal are in the market for a new wing forward and Alexis Claude-Maurice could be the man for the job.

He could be the direct replacement for Danny Welbeck after the England international star left the club upon the expiration of his contract with the Gunners.

Danny Welbeck joined Arsenal from Premier League rivals Manchester United in a £16m deal.
