Aurier had earlier informed Arsenal fan that he will join Arsene Wenger’s side this summer. However, the Emirates club’s manager chose to sign his compatriot Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle United.
A move from the North London club for the French international is believed to be ideal as Debuchy has already featured in the Premier League for his former club. Arsenal’s Aurier snub has seen him chose the Ligue 1 champions as his next best possible destination.
