Arsenal and West Ham target Alexis Claude-Maurice says he wants to join Borussia Monchengladbach this summer.

The Gunners reportedly made a bid for the 21-year-old winger this month, while the Hammers' offer was rejected by Lorient.

The France U20 international has now revealed he does not see his future in the Premier League, telling L'Equipe: "Now I feel like it's time to leave, to join a club that is playing at a higher level.

"I want to join Monchengladbach. It is a club that relies on young people, there is a good structure, the team will play in the Europa League. This project pleases me and suits me."

Claude-Maurice scored 14 goals for Lorient last season, but the side missed out on promotion to Ligue 1.
