England risk missing out on Arsenal left-back Samir Bihmoutine.

The talented teen qualifies for Morocco and admits he's been influenced by teammate Marouane Chamakh about pledging for the African nation.

"I've had contact with Morocco and might look to represent them next year after getting more experience with Arsenal," he revealed to arsenal.com.

"I'd like to play for them, my dad's from there and it's a big part of my background. I speak with Marouane Chamakh when I see him in the gym, and we've chatted about the national team. Our families come from similar places, actually, in Casablanca - so we have that in common."
