Arsenal face competition for Aurier

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have been joined in the race to sign Toulouse full-back Serge Aurier, according to The Sun

If reports are to be believed, the Gunners will have to battle Premier League duo Newcastle United and Aston Villa for the player's signature this summer. 

Aurier has impressed in Ligue 1 in recent time and, at just 21-years-old, he's already a full Ivory Coast international. 

And it appears that Arsene Wenger has made the the youngster a top target for the summer as he goes in search of a replacement for Bacary Sagna, who could depart the Emirates. 

However, if Arsenal are going to get their man, they may have to fight off interest from the likes of Newcastle and Aston Villa. 

It remains to be seen as to whether Arsenal step up their interest in the Toulouse ace in the near future, with it appearing a fee of around £6 million will be enough to secure his signature. 

For now though, the likes of Arsenal and Co. will be concentrating on the Premier League run in. The Gunners are in action on Sunday as they play Everton, who are just one spot below them in the Premier League table.
