Toulouse defender Serge Aurier has lauded Premier League club Arsenal, claiming that any player would like to one day play for them, Inside Futbol reports.
The 21-year-old has excelled in Ligue 1 this term, and has emerged as a potential replacement for Bacary Sagna, whose contract expires in the summer.
“Arsenal, you can’t refuse”, the young Ivorian star told Foot Mercato.
“You can ask any player if he would play at Arsenal. I think he would respond positively without hesitation.
“This is a legendary club and we all know the many French players who have played a part in the history of Arsenal.
“Of course, it is a dream,” Aurier added.
The powerful fullback is equally adept in the centre of defence, which could also help the Gunners, who are expecting to sell club captain Thomas Vermaelen in the summer.
Chelsea though are also interested in Aurier, and sent scouts to watch him during Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at home to Lille.
