Arsenal, Tottenham target Aurier joins PSG

Serge Aurier has completed his transfer to French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

The 21-year old Ivory Coast right-back has joined PSG from Toulouse on a season-long loan with an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the campaign.

Aurier, who impressed for the Ivorians at the World Cup, had emerged as a target for both Arsenal and Tottenham but will continue his career in France after beginning with Lens back in 2009.

"To play for Paris Saint-Germain, with the exceptional players this club has, is a dream come true," he told PSG's official website.

"I will give my maximum to help the club reach the summits. After taking part in the World Cup for the first time, I am having a fantastic summer.

"I would like to thank the club for the confidence they have shown in me."
