With Bacary Sagna likely to leave in the summer, Arsenal are looking to recruit another promising youngster from France to replace him in the right-back position.

20 year-old Serge Aurier is a major target to compete with Carl Jenkinson.

Competition

The player is highly sought-after in his own country, however. Toulouse have already received inquiries from Lyon and big-spending Monaco for his services, and he may prefer to stay in France.

However, Arsenal could give a tempting offer of first-team PL football along with whatever financials are involved.

Aurier is also highly sought among other European sides, as one of the best RB prospects in Europe right now, along with Sebastian Corchia of Sochaux.

So it won’t be easy prying him away, especially considering what Monaco can offer him, though they’ve been linked as a potential buyer for Sagna.

Arsenal could probably sell Sagna and buy Aurier without losing any money in net terms, which sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Every single time Jenkinson has played hes performed great. I would feel extremely comfortable with him starting at right back.

I'd first try to retain Sagna, if not.. i think Lowton fits the bill.. he is young, has PL experience, undoubtedly skillful and will prove an able competitor for CJ.

Selling Sagna doesn't make sense at all. Arsenal need a strong and fat squad this season to compet with others an challenge for trophies.
