According to a Metro report that quotes reports from France, the attacking right-back has reached an agreement with Arsenal on the terms of his contract and the Gunners now only need to finalise the fee with his club, Toulouse.
It has been reported that it's likely to be around the £8m mark. That was reportedly the initial offer Arsenal made to Toulouse, and they're waiting to hear back from the Ligue 1 club.
Aurier has been a shining light for the Ivory Coast at the World Cup so far, providing two assists for both goals in the 2-1 win over Japan in their opening group game. And Liverpool and Queens Park Rangers were also interested in his signature, although Arsenal have always been favourites.
Bacary Sagna replacement
Arsene Wenger has been linked with a number of full-backs following Bacary Sagna's decision to run down his Arsenal contract and join Manchester City.
The Gunners have Carl Jenkinson as a back-up option, but Wenger wanted to bring in another as a direct replacement for the France international.
Aurier, 21, joined Toulouse in 2012 and has made more than 50 league appearances, earning 10 caps for his country so far and rave reviews from watching Liverpool and Arsenal scouts.
He's reportedly agreed a five-year contract with the Gunners, putting him on wages of £60,000-a-week.
