Serge Aurier: Could be on the move this summer

The highly-rated defender was handed his senior debut at Lens in 2009 while still in his teens and was snapped up by Toulouse in 2012.

He has impressed at Ligue 1 level, earning him international recognition with Ivory Coast.

The 20-year-old is now being linked with moves to England, or a potential title challenger in France, and admits he is flattered to be the centre of attention.

Aurier said: "I would like to perform at the top level and play against top opponents every week.

"I am enjoying my international career so far. I love the national team, they have been great for me.

"Everton are a top team and if they show interest in you it means a lot. I am just trying to stay relaxed about things.

"Marseille are a top club in France and when they show interest you cannot ignore it, you have to listen."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
