Toulouse defender Serge Aurier has revealed he would reject a move to either Paris Saint-Germain or Monaco in order to seal a move to Arsenal.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has reportedly identified the 21-year-old as a potential replacement for Bacary Sagna - should the Frenchman decide to leave the Emirates Stadium in the summer.
French moneybags Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are both said to be keen on enticing the Ivorian international away from Toulouse, however the youngster has revealed he would be keen on a move to north London.
Speaking to The Sun, Aurier said on the possibility of moving to the Emirates Stadium: “You cannot turn down Arsenal. Ask any player if they would like to play for Arsenal and they’ll respond favourably without hesitation.
“It’s a mythical club, where a lot of French players have helped to make their history.
“It’s certain that Arsenal always makes you dream and it is certainly flattering knowing that you have a profile that interests such an ambitious club.
“PSG and Monaco are building and within two or three years can be among the best teams in the world.
“But I would like to discover another league and it is the English league that makes me dream."
Arsenal are hoping to spend around £7.5million on recruiting Aurier to replace the outgoing Sagna.
However the Ligue 1 outfit reportedly want at least £12million for the Ivorian - as he has been a mainstay in Alain Casanova's side this season.
Wenger may choose to switch his attention elsewhere if he fails to meet Toulouse's estimation - with Micah Richards and Calum Chambers said to be on his transfer shortlist.
