Arsenal are suggested to be targeting Toulouse right-back Serge Aurier, who could possibly take the place of outgoing veteran Bacary Sagna, this summer.
Arsene Wenger is eyeing Toulouse right-back Serge Aurier, who could replace outgoing veteran Bacary Sagna
Sagna has yet to sort out an agreement with the Gunners' hierarchy, forcing Arsene Wenger to come up with a contingency plan.
The Ivory Coast international is a constant fixture for the Ligue 1 outfit this season, helping them stay within distance from a qualifying spot for European competition.
The 21-year-old offensive-minded defender has already contributed 7 assists in France's top-flight, coupled with 5 goals, while starting all of his 27 appearances.
He is in contract with Les Violets until 2018, but an opportunity to play in the biggest stage of club football - the Champions League - might be too tempting to pass up.
Aurier, whose value is believed to be in the region of £6million, has already received 7 international caps from the seniors' squad, only making his debut last June 2013.
