Hello and welcome to the forum.
I'd certaintly suspect a CV joint to cause a noise like your experiencing,but it is difficult to decide which one is causing it.Check the gaiters for damage and evidence of grease leaking from them,if you find one has a gaiter that isn't sealed properly then it's usually that joint thats causing the noise.Once they start getting noisy there is not point in just repacking with grease and fitting a new gaiter.
.The damage to the joint is done,and replacement is the only option.I strongly suspect that joints are integral to the shaft,so a new driveshaft will be required.
Good luck and let us know how you get on.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
