Arsenal are close to sealing an £8m deal to sign young Ivory Coast full-back Serge Aurier from Toulouse.

Aurier would directly replace Bacary Sagna, who signed for Manchester City last month.

The Gunners have reportedly agree personal terms with Aurier, 21, and now just need to finalise the fee with the Ligue 1 club.
