The Daily Mail has managed to put smiles on the faces of Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that a new right back may be on the way to the club.
The Gunners have been scouting around for a replacement right back given Bacary Sagna has made it very clear his future does not lie at the Emirates Stadium and it seems that Serge Aurier may well be that man.
As one of our punters points out over a pint, Aurier is a massive Arsenal fan and has even stated before that you: “Can’t really say no to Arsenal”.
This of course led to us to assume that Aurier may well be the number one choice for Arsene Wenger this summer and now the Toulouse defender has even reportedly told a fan he will be joining the Gunners!
A video entitled ‘Serge Aurier tells Arsenal fan he is going to Arsenal’ was posted on Twitter and was retweeted by the Ivory Coast international’s official account, meaning that there is a fair bit of credibility to the links – well more so than usual!
Aurier will cost around £7.5 million and we think that is money that ever frugal Wenger would be willing to shell out – especially given the player is only 21-years-old.
Arsenal fans. Is this a player you would like to see join the club this summer? Who would your Sagna replacement be? Let us know your thoughts below.
