The Ivory Coast international is currently enjoying an impressive campaign for the Ligue 1 outfit, so much so that the defender is now wanted by at least three Premier League teams, and one Serie A side too, when the summer transfer window finally reopens for business on July 1.

As well as the north London club, the likes of both Aston Villa and Newcastle United are also said to be interested in landing the attacking full back for next season, while Serie A heavyweights Inter Milan are also believed to be keen on the player too.

And so as a result, it appears as though there will now be a four-way fight to win Aurier’s signature, with the 21-year-old currently contracted to his French club until June 2018, with Toulouse said to be seeking a transfer fee of somewhere in the region of £6m for the Ivorian.
