Unai Emery is keen to bolster his squad in the summer as he aims to challenge for a top-four finish next term after finishing a point behind fourth-placed Spurs this season.

The Spanish boss can still secure Champions League football for next term if his side beat Chelsea in the Europa League final later this month.

It’s expected that Lorient, who sold Matteo Guendouzi to Arsenal last summer,
would let Claude-Maurice move on for a price of around £9million.
