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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
