Arsenal accuse Lorient of talking up Claude-Maurice transfer

Arsenal are not interested in signing Lorient forward Alexis Claude-Maurice.

Close to 10 clubs are reportedly vying for the 21-year-old's signature, with West Ham having already had an offer of £16m rejected by the Ligue 2 club.

90min says the Gunners are not one of the clubs keen on the Frenchman.

The report claims Lorient drummed up Arsenal's interest themselves in order to increase their asking price.

Claude-Maurice is instead close to joining Borussia Monchengladbach.
