    Anyway, back to Arsenal.

    Who has ever seen Aurier play? If so, what do we make of him? I've heard him being compared to Dani Alvez once haha

    Apparently never watched him, but read he's quick, versatile and can also score goals.

    Read an article about him on sky sports just a while ago, about his desire to play in England, how he'd be excited if we made a bid for him. Literally begging for us to sign him..

    6 goals & 6 assists in 34 appearances is a pretty good stat for a 21 year old RB. Just hope he doesn't turn out to be an Eboue lol

    Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Eboue, I actuall adored his willingness to try.. But we need a true talented replacement

    I don't think anyone on this sub-forum has seen him play regularly, but he was voted the best RB in Ligue 1 in L'Equipe and he's highly thought of in France

    People talk about our need for a striker but when Sagna leaves, replacing him should be our number one priority. If we can sign up Aurier, wait what's the asking price??

    Anyway, when we replace him only then should we concentrate on the other positions

    I really hope Wenger doesn't make my summer an anxious one

    Utd has been linked with almost every player avaliable for transfer, but I only see them getting a handful of them.

    Actually, "United" in Arabic is موحد 'Muvahad'

    and إتحاد 'Etihad' means "Union" or "Association" (so not quite)

    I've watched Aurier regularly and for £7M he's an absolute bargain. He's a potent attacking threat from the wing. He loves to cross he love to be incisive in the final third but more importantly from what I've seen he's an intelligent full back.

    He reads the game slightly above average than other players in Ligue 1 and he takes advantage. He knows when to defend and stay back or to run up the line and overlap. This has annoyed Toulouse fans a little because they're want constant attacking football but in reality they don't see the value of what he does.

    He's a total athlete, strong, fast, bags of energy and stamina with a technique to deliver accurate crosses. He versatility is a key aspect also, he can play anywhere across the front 3, he becomes our 4th CB.

    Obviously his stats are slight skewed because of the inferiority of Ligue 1. He's too comfortable in that league imo, he's allowed too much freedom down the right by opposition and so he has a big impact on games.

    He has a bit of a discipline problem. He get over hyper on the pitch which lead to him remonstrating with refs alot. That needs to be coached out of him immediately or else he'll struggle in the CL and Prem.

    Alain Casanova speaks highly of him, Aurier come across a professional although his public display of affection for Arsenal is quite bad. For Gooners we love it but it doesn't give of the best image to the people around him.

    He a quality player, the ideal replacement for Sagna but I would not feel totally comfortable with just Jenks and him alone for RB. They're both still young and I think the pressure for playing for Arsenal will get to them and lead to mistakes as we've seen with Jenks.

    Aurier potential link up with Theo is another thing that worries me, He performs much better when they're are technically based players on the wings.

    Quality post, well balanced view on his pros and cons. His cons are minor in my opinion, especially given his young age and the fact that if he signs for us we he will be playing alongside Mertesacker who has so much experience & discipline to pass on to him.

    One pros you forgot to mention is that he's comfortable filling in a a centre back too. I've watched clips of him on YouTube and he has all the strength, pace, technical ability and footballing brain to adapt to the demands of the Premier League. Perfect long term replacement for Sagna! Hope we sign him instead of Southampton's Callum Chambers who we were linked with.

    Good that Aurier is fast and solid on the attack but how good is he defensively when we're being hammered?

    Tackling is actually one of his best attributes. He's a solid defender who wins one-on-one duels more often than not.

    As long as he's fast I won't be too fussed as the problem is normally our full backs being caught up the pitch. Defensive wise I think he's fine in terms of awareness and tackling.

    Fair enough, right now the only person who seems to be going for those is Koscielny so I guess it would provide us with more of a direct approach
