Arsenal FC Transfer News: Promising Toulouse Defender Admits Emirates Move would be Hard to 'Refuse'

Toulouse FC defender Serge Aurier is reported to be on Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger's priority list this summer, and the 21-year-old admits that an offer to don the red shirt might be hard to refuse.
“I would not refuse Arsenal. This is a club that has a history, which has hosted many French-speakers who also have a French coach.” - Serge Aurier
He started all of his 34 appearances for the French side in the Ligue 1, fielded-in in the right side or the middle of the back line.
The Ivory Coast international was able to contribute six goals and six assists, while seemingly fit to play under the Gunners' system, as he is comfortable with the ball and loves to move forward and dish out searching crosses.
"It is certain that I would be a little disappointed to stay in Toulouse, especially after a season like this," Aurier told Yahoo! Sport.
"I prefer one that shows its commitment to me, who guarantees me playing time."
"I would not refuse Arsenal. This is a club that has a history, which has hosted many French-speakers who also have a French coach."
"Plus Arsenal is always looking for titles and playing in the Champions League."
