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.

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

"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."
