The north London club are already understood to be preparing for life at the Emirates next season without regular right-back Bacary Sagna, with the experienced France international now on the verge of quitting the Gunners in order to join Premier League champions Manchester City on a lucrative Bosman-style free transfer.

However, it seems that the Arsenal boss has already identified a suitable replacement for Sagna in the capital next season and that player is the Toulouse starlet who was recently voted into the Ligue 1 Team of the Year on the back of a number of fine displays on the right-hand side of his club’s back four in the previous campaign.

In fact, Aurier has even been described as the “Dani Alves of Ligue 1” due to the attacking nature of the Ivory Coast internati0nal’s game, while the player himself recently said of the possibility of joining the Gunners: “You can’t refuse an offer from Arsenal. It would be a dream.”
