Toulouse defender Serge Aurier has put on the record his desire to play for Arsenal, despite scouts from Chelsea taking in his latest performance.

The 21-year-old has been increasingly linked with Arsene Wenger's Arsenal in recent months and word of the Gunners' interest in his services has reached the youngster's ears.

It is something he is pleased to hear, especially as moving to the Emirates Stadium would represent the fulfilling of a dream.

"Arsenal, you can't refuse", Aurier told Foot Mercato.


"You can ask any player if he would play at Arsenal. I think he would respond positively without hesitation.

"This is a legendary club and we all know the many French players who have played a part in the history of Arsenal.

"Of course, it is a dream."

Arsenal are not alone in their admiration of Aurier however, with Chelsea having sent a scout to watch him in action during Saturday's 2-1 defeat at home to Lille.
