Arsenal are in advanced talks with Toulouse for fullback Serge Aurier.
The Daily Star says the 21-year-old left-back has been identified as the perfect replacement for departing defender Bacary Sagna, who looks certain to leave the north London club after talks over a new deal stalled.
Aurier is valued at around £7m and has won rave reviews this season, being described as 'the Dani Alves of Ligue 1'.
Aurier recently spoke about being linked with the Gunners, revealing: “You can’t refuse an offer from Arsenal.
"It would be a dream.”
