Toulouse defender linked with Arsenal transfer

Published Add your comment

Arsenal target Serge Aurier is pleased with the progress he is making at Toulouse, and is happy to continue honing his skills in Ligue 1, reports Sky Sports.

The Ivory Coast international has been recently linked with a move to the Premier League, with north London touted as a possible destination.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing the 20-year-old defender to the Emirates Stadium, with a view to succeeding Bacary Sagna as Arsenal's first-choice right-back.

With Carl Jenkinson already on the books at Arsenal, there is no need for Wenger to rush into a move for Aurier, so it's likely that the Frenchman will be encouraged by the defender's latest comments regarding his future at Stadium Municipal.

"I go on improving at Toulouse that trusts me, then, we will see," he told L'Equipe.

With over four years remaining on his current contract at Toulouse, Alain Casanova will be in no rush to sell the talented full-back, and will be in a strong position to negotiate, should Arsenal renew interest in Aurier's signature.
