Newcastle and West Ham United have been linked with Claude-Maurice of Lorient but the question is that is the Bundesliga bound? The rumors are Alexis Claude-Maurice has apparently ended any anticipation Newcastle United, Arsenal or West Ham had of signing this player in this summer. Because of his performance in international French U20, his name has been discussed by the media and others in the sports group for the last few weeks.
Claude-Maurice said in an interview “I would love to become the part of Borussia Monchengladbach.” He shared his reason for showing interest in the club and said “This is the club who focus on young players, the club has a good structure, and it is playing in the Europa League as well. I have seen their projects, I like and it also suits me well.”
He further added that in the recent season some of the great players like Marco Reus, Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and Mo Dahoud have made their way to Gladbach and this is great. This is probably the reason why Claude-Maurice might want to go to the Bundesliga side. However, whatever the case is, the comment of Claude-Maurice will not be easy to swallow by Arsenal, Newcastle or West Ham in any case.
