Reported Arsenal target, Toulouse right-back Serge Aurier, is being touted as a replacement should out-of-contract Bacary Sagna leave. The 21 year old Ivory Coast defender told Eurosport France: "It is true that I would be a bit disappointed to stay in Toulouse after a season like this one. I want to try something else.
"I have never prioritised a club in England as even the promoted clubs are respectable, so I would take the opportunity for the one that will show the most interest in me, that will give me the most game time.
"After that, you can't really say no to Arsenal.
"It is a club with history, with a French manager, who has welcomed many France players. Plus, Arsenal are always thereabouts when it comes to trophies and a club that plays in the Champions League."
