Arsenal transfers: Serge Aurier confirms that the Gunners made an approach to sign him this summer

Serge Aurier has confirmed that Arsenal made an approach to sign him this summer.

The Ivory Coast right-back was heavily linked with a transfer to north London before the Gunners signed Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle United last week.

And the defender, who has also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, has revealed his admiration for the north London club.

“True Arsenal has always attracted me, I’ve never hidden my attraction to this club that makes me dream, but it’s not just Arsenal, the city of London I really like and also the Premier League too, I’d really like to move to this league one day,” Aurier told Le10Sport.

“Everyone lingered on the transfer of ‘Aurier to Arsenal’ because it’s true, there has been an approach and a desire to make me sign [for] Arsenal.

“But hey, it does not happen and that’s that.”
