Serge Aurier expected to join PSG
Paris Saint-Germain are on course to sign Toulouse right-back Serge Aurier this week, according to reports in France.
Le Parisien says that both parties hope to complete the move in time for the Ivory Coast international to leave for Hong Kong with PSG on Friday.
The Ligue 1 champions face local side Kitchee there next Tuesday before playing the French season's curtain raiser, the Trophee des Champions, against Guingamp in Beijing on Aug. 2.

Before that, though, Laurent Blanc's side take on Nice on Wednesday evening. L'Equipe suggests that Christophe Jallet's absence from the squad for that game is a sure sign that the Aurier deal is close.
Jallet, 30, is set to join Lyon to make way for Aurier. PSG are reportedly set to receive between 1.5 and two million euros for the former Lorient full back, who is entering the final year of his contract in the French capital.
Le Parisien says that Clement Chantome, who was on loan at Toulouse last season, will not be returning there as part of the Aurier deal.
