Louis van Gaal: Manchester United top target could replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal instead as Gunners go Dutch next season

FA Cup finalists are still waiting for Wenger to commit his future to the club

Toulouse right-back Aurier has described a move to Arsenal as 'a dream' but Chelsea and Newcastle United are also tracking the 21-year-old. The French defender has six goals and six assists so far this season. The Gunners are scouting right-backs across Europe with the future of Bacary Sagna still uncertain. Should Sagna depart on a free in the summer, expect the Gunners to replace the former Auxerre star with another talent from Ligue 1.
