Arsenal target hints at summer move

Toulouse defender Serge Aurier has expressed his desire to leave the club at the end of the current campaign.

The full-back has a long list of suitors among Europe’s top clubs, with Arsenal reportedly leading the chase at the moment as they see him as a good replacement for Bacary Sagna.

And even though he is still just 21, Aurier believes he is ready to quit le Tefece for a big European club.

“Moving abroad? I don’t think it is too early,” he told L’Equipe. “It is about trust, and reaching a new step, I am not scared to go higher.”

The talented defender has also suggested that he won’t be staying in France out of respect for his current employers.

“Another French club? I respect France but I would feel like betraying TFC if I would stay in Ligue 1.”

Despite is fragile age, Aurier has already amassed 103 first team appearances for Lens and Toulouse, scoring 7 goals in the process.

The Ivorian has been in stunning form this season, having managed 5 goals and 6 assists in 25 Ligue 1 outings.

Aurier has also nailed down a regular starting berth in the Ivory Coast national team and is expected to star at the forthcoming World Cup.
