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.

Arsenal centre-back Shkodran Mustafi has hit out at the transfer rumours that surrounded him this summer.

The German was linked with a move to Inter Milan in August, just a year after joining Arsenal in a £35 million move from Valencia. However, the San Siro giants director Piero Ausilio said the move fell through because Mustafi’s wage demands, and the Germany international has been one of the Gunners’ best defenders when fit this season.

After netting the opening goal in Saturday’s 2-0 win over arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur, the Germany World Cup winner lashed out at reporters asking him about his potential move.

“You like to get the s—, the biggest s—,” Mustafi said according to the Telegraph. “What happens in the changing room is the real thing. I have been talking to clubs or if I haven’t, it’s only rumours. I’m here, I’m standing in front of you in an Arsenal shirt.”

The former Valencia star hit back at the critics who had written off Arsenal ahead of the game following four away losses in the Premier League this season.

“That’s you guys thinking it,” he said. “As always, Arsenal is dead, Arsenal is not coming back.

“We always are alive, we always believe in ourselves but we all know that if you win the big games but lose the small games you’re not going to finish top of the league, or even in the top four. If you win today and lose next weekend you are back where you were.”
