Gunners want Toulouse youngster to replace Sagna at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has identified young Toulouse right Serge Aurier as the man to replace want-away Frenchman Bacary Sagna, fanatix has learnt.

Wenger has been promised money to spend in January and is keen to recruit a defensive midfielder and a centre-forward, as well as talented Ivorian Aurier.

Although just 19, Aurier has been a mainstay for Ligue 1 outfit Toulouse this season, impressing both offensively and at the back.

France international Sagan, 29, is understood to be keen to leave the Emirates in January or the summer, after speaking out against the club’s transfer policy and their refusal to offer him a new deal in August.

Wenger is prepared to sell Sagna next month, with PSG ready to spend £9.5m to bring the former Auxerre man back to France.

Aurier, who holds both French and Ivorian citizenship, is the man Wenger wants to replace Sagna, although the tactician is willing to allow the youngster to remain on loan at Toulouse until the end of the current campaign.

However, the young defender only joined Toulouse from Lens in the summer and it is understood that the Gunners will have to pay at least £7m to get their man.
