Boss Arsene Wenger believes Aurier can replace Bacary Sagna, 31, whose contract runs out in June and is snubbing a new deal.

There is also concern over the form of Spanish left-back Nacho Monreal, 28.

Ivory Coast international Aurier – rated at £15million – is doing little to dampen speculation he could be heading to The Emirates.

He said: “You can’t refuse an offer from Arsenal – it would be a dream.”
