Arsenal have reportedly fallen short with their second offer for Lorient forward Alexis Claude-Maurice.
The 21-year-old scored 14 goals and chipped in with four assists in 16 Ligue 2 appearances last season.
Lorient rejected that £6.1m bid and, according to Get French Football News, Arsenal have now been unsuccessful with their second approach.
The report claims that the Gunners' improved offer was in the region of £14m.
Despite again being knocked back, it is suggested that the North London outfit are not yet prepared to give up on Claude-Maurice.body check tags ::
