Arsenal are reportedly eyeing a summer move for FC Lorient Forward Alexis Claude-Maurice. The 20 year-old from Ligue 2 has cored 14 goal and has 3 assists in 31 appearances. According to Mirror Football, Arsenal scouts have watched Claude-Maurice closely and view him as a potential replacement for Danny Welbeck.

Welbeck is also leaving on a free transfer this summer window after the club did not want to renew his contract, Leaving Unai without a third striker as Eddie Nketiah will most likely go on Loan, so Claude-Maurice could be the back up striker for Alexander Lacazette and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. However, the Premier League is completely different to Ligue 2, not only is it in a different country, the skill level is on another level. Could Claude-Marice cope with it ?

Norwich, Lille and Rennes are also interested in the young Frenchman who is expected to cost around €10 Million.
