Serge Aurier

Serge Aurier

While Aurier is, at 21-years-old, a younger player than Jenkinson, he is thought to be high on the wish list of Arsene Wenger. The Ivorian is already a staple in his national side, and has been turning heads at Toulouse this season. WhoScored has awarded Aurier a rating of 7.43 this campaign, making him one of Europe’s top right-backs. He is fast, extremely powerful – he is built like the proverbial brick – and has experience playing in the centre of defence too. Six goals and six assists in 33 appearances for Toulouse is an impressive return for a full-back. Anyone who follows Aurier on Twitter will be aware of his fondness for Arsenal, and with Wenger thought to be keen on him, it feels like merely a matter of time until the marriage becomes formalised.
