Arsenal target Serge Aurier has denied Emmanual Eboue a place in the Ivory Coast's World Cup squad.
The Toulouse right-back, who has been scouted by the Gunners man in France Gilles Grimandi as the north Londoners look at options to replace Bacary Sagna, has made the 28-man squad named for the tournament in Brazil today.
Aurier has been tipped to join Arsenal should Sagna leave in the summer.
The 21-year-old Ivory Coast international would cost Arsenal around £7.5million.
