Arsenal target Serge Aurier grabbed two assists for Ivory Coast v Japan [Vine video]

Arsenal fans reeling from the loss of Bacary Sagna to Manchester City on a free transfer were keeping a keen eye on Ivory Coast’s World Cup match with Japan in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Toulouse right back Serge Aurier has been tipped as Sagna’s most like replacement at the Emirates.

Aurier, fairly unknown in England, would be very much a typical Arsene Wenger signing since he is a youngster from Ligue 1 that ticks all the boxes in terms of pace and power.

The Ivory Coast right back was instrumental in their comeback win over Japan – setting up both goals with almost identical crosses from the right hand side.

First, Aurier set up Wilfried Bony, two minutes later it was former Arsenal forward Gervinho.

Both of the Aurier assists can be seen above. Some of the Twitter reaction to the Arsenal target’s performance can be seen below.
