Serge Aurier admits 'you can't say no to Arsenal' as £7m right-back begins talks with the Gunners - reports
The 21-year-old is seen as a replacement for Bacary Sagna
Serge Aurier says he could "not say no" to a move to Arsenal as the club reportedly open preliminary talks with the £7m-rated Toulouse right-back.
Aurier, who has won seven caps for the Ivory Coast, is seen as a direct replacement for Bacary Sagna, who is close to agreeing a three-year contract with Manchester City.
"I've never prioritised a club in England as even the promoted clubs are respectable," the 21-year-old told Eurosport France.
"I will privilege the one that will show the most interest in me, that will give me the most game time. After that, you can’t really say ‘no’ to Arsenal.
"It’s a club with history, with a French manager, who has welcomed many French players.
"Arsenal are always thereabouts when it comes to trophies and a club that plays in the Champions League."
