Alexis Claude-Maurice

A creative midfielder who can also play wide, Alexis Claude-Maurice's talent first emerged at the Lorient youth academy, and he had enjoyed two good seasons in Brittany before joining Le Gym in August 2019 following an eye-catching Ligue 2 campaign in which he had scored 14 times and tallied four assists.

He made his L1 debut for Le Gym against Montpellier on 14 September, 2019, before noting "during my first games, what I was showing didn't correspond to my qualities or my objectives. I was putting too much pressure on myself and I hadn't anticipated the difficulties". He had to wait until 21 December 2019 for his first assist in the win over Toulouse, and his first goal — "a relief," as he described it — arrived in the 3-1 loss to Nîmes on 8 February, 2020.

His maiden season in Nice ended with 24 competitive appearances, and he was named runner-up in the fans' Young Player of the Year vote. His second season was better with his confidence renewed, and he featured in 37 competitive games, including six in the Europa League. He scored five times and had as many assists, including three racked up in the home win against Brest. He also was called up by France U21s, and was named runner-up in Nice's Player of the Year poll.

Continuing to be hampered by injuries, ACM played on 11 occasions during the 2021-22 season, but still managed to pick up two assists.

The attacking midfielder began the following season in a Gym shirt, scoring a vital goal in the Aiglons' Conference League play-off second leg win over Maccabi Tel-Aviv (0-1, 2-0). Loaned out to RC Lens at the end of the summer transfer window, Claude-Maurice played for the club for the remainder of the 2022-2023 season.

Appearing 22 times for Franck Haise's side, the Ile-de-France native scored five goals, including one in Lens' 3-1 win over PSG (M17). He also added four assists to round off his best statistical seasons in Ligue 1.
