Impact Alexis Claude-Maurice will make to Arsenal if Unai Emery clinches €7m deal this summer

Reports claim that the Gunners have had a bid for the player rejected


More information has been provided as to what to expect from Arsenal target Alexis Claude-Maurice should he arrive at the Emirates Stadium this summer.

Reports on Saturday claim that the Gunners have had a €7million bid rejected by the players club FC Lorient, but Arsenal are expected to return with an improved offer for the winger, with the player said to be very keen on a move to the Premier League to link up with former teammate and friend Matteo Guendouzi.

The Frenchman currently plays his football in the French second division. English coverage of the league is not so forthcoming as the top European divisions, so fans can be excused if they don't know what to expect from the 20-year-old.

 

Luckily for Arsenal fans, FC Lorient expert Lucas Le Texier was on hand to provide information about the Gunners' target.

"He can play in attacking midfield or out wide," Le Texier told reporters . "He is a very technical player. One of his greatest qualities is his ball control, where he always manages to make great touches."

"It's very hard to take the ball from him. His main progression is the timing of his passes and their choice. He is a rather fast player but he is not the type who will do 30-40 meters with big acceleration.

"He prefers to have the ball between the lines and then he has speed with his next move or execution. His finishing is very good, many of his goals come from outside the box. He puts a trajectory through his hit & it's very special, curved, gentle strikes but powerful ones too."

Claude-Maurice has shone in Ligue 2 this season, scoring 14 goals and providing four assists for his club.
