As far as I'm aware and from the brief times I've seen him play, he tends to get forward quite well. Very fast, quite strong. When I watched him his delivery was okay not sensational. Looked to me to be a similar player to Valencia, so I suppose with Valencia getting older he could turn out a really good signing.

He has the reputation of a trouble maker. Although I don't know the details. Can one of the eds give their thoughts if you have a minute?

Aurier was 'the next big thing' and a future world beater a few years back. He's plied his trade in France for Lens and Toulouse before PSG signed him up at 21, first on loan then permanently

I vaguely remember he was linked with Barcelona as Dani Alves' long term replacement as well as a few other big clubs. Sadly a mixture of form and personal / attitude issues has severely hampered his progress

He's very short, even for a full back, but he is quick and surprisingly strong. Despite being very short he has played at CB for PSG more than once, but is primarily a wing back. He is strong in the tackle, though it's not his forte as his pace gets him out of trouble more often than not and his positioning can be suspect. Sadly his end product is similar to Valencia and he has only a few (5 or so) assists in 2 years with PSG (over 40 league games total)

Decent full back, similar to Tony V, but has attitude issues (homophobic slurs to the manager, publically abusing the referee and high profile Falling's out with team mates)

Decent player but for me he is not a massive upgrade on Tony, just younger at 24.

I personally think he could be one of the best in the world at his position, if only he wasn't a complete A. hole. Shame to see the talent wasted.

Can confirm the homophobic comments. A few years back he was caught saying some horrible stuff, I believe PSG suspended him from the squad for a while during this period?

I'm unsure, he obviously is decent enough but do we really want a player like this playing at our club?
