Serge Aurier seeking to obtain French citizenship

According to Le Parisien, PSG’s Ivorian right-back Serge Aurier is seeking to obtain French citizenship.

Aurier had a naturalisation request rejected by the French government in 2011, and is hoping that five years on he will be looked upon more favourably.

Following last week’s debacle that saw Aurier miss out on playing against Arsenal after the United Kingdom prevented his entry into the country owing to his recent court case and consequent appeal, the obtention of French citizenship on the part of Aurier is also very much in the interest of PSG.
