The Daily Mail says Arsenal have long been considered favourites for his signature while Marseille have also shown an interest but Tottenham hope to steal a march over the coming days.

Aurier hasn't been shy talking up the prospect of moving to the Gunners.

But the availability of Newcastle United fullback Mathieu Debuchy has seen the Arsenal trail turn cold.
