A report claims that Arsenal have been joined in the race for Alexis Claude-Maurice by Newcastle United, West Ham United and eight other clubs.

Arsenal reportedly face competition from fellow Premier League clubs Newcastle United and West Ham United for Lorient forward Alexis Claude-Maurice.

The Gunners are rumoured to be preparing a third bid for the 21-year-old after being knocked back twice already this window.

Claude-Maurice scored 14 goals and laid on four assists for his teammates in 16 Ligue 2 appearances last season - form that has led to other teams across the continent showing an interest.

Sky Sports News reports that Newcastle and West Ham want to snap up the ex-France Under-20s international, while Brighton & Hove Albion have also been monitoring developments.

Borussia Monchengladbach, RB Leipzig, Lyon, Lille, Monaco, Marseille and Sevilla are also rumoured to be in the running for Claude-Maurice's signature, but he favours a move to Arsenal at this stage.
