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."
