‘Arsenal Should Buy Him’ ‘A Quality Winger’ Fans On Social Media React As Arsenal Make Bid Of £6.2m For 20 Year Old

Arsenal have had an opening bid of €7m (£6.2m) rejected by Lorient for winger Alexis Claude-Maurice, according to Get French Football News.

The 20-year-old has been linked with a switch to the Gunners, as well as Norwich City over the past week, and it appears the London club have made their move.

Fans on Twitter are happy that the club are making bids for hidden gems:

Claude-Maurice had a very good season in Ligue Two, France’s second division. It was a breakthrough campaign as a first-team regular, scoring 14 goals and providing four assists in 35 league games.

He generally plays in an attacking midfield role, either on the left wing or through the middle of the pitch behind the forward line.

Claude-Maurice is a former teammate of Matteo Guendouzi, and it’s likely that the Arsenal midfielder will be trying to persuade the Lorient star into moving to the Emirates this summer.
