PSG step up Serge Aurier pursuit

According to journalist Pierre Menes, PSG have stepped up their pursuit for Toulouse right-back Serge Aurier, after Arsenal decided not to continue pursuing the youngster.

As France Football exclusively revealed last week, Laurent Blanc, PSG’s manager, has even called Aurier in persuading the player to join. Les Parisiens’ first offer to Toulouse is imminent and they are ready to use Christophe Jallet in the deal. They would have tried to use Clement Chantome also, but the player does not wish to return there.

There may also be an issue with Jallet, after Lyon made a concrete approach for the player last week, who can guarantee European football.

AS Monaco meanwhile have also made their first concrete offer for Serge Aurier, an offer which is currently being considered by Toulouse.

Toulouse and Serge Aurier would prefer a transfer to occur with a club from overseas.

Premier League clubs continue to pursue the player, but there have not been any fresh approaches at the time of writing.
