The 21-year-old Ivory Coast international has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal, who reportedly see him as a possible replacement for Bacary Sagna, who has been tipped for a summer exit.
Aurier was asked if he thought a big move this summer would possibly be too early for him, but he does not agree.
"Moving abroad? I don't think it is too early," he told L'Equipe.
"It is about trust, and reaching a new step, I am not scared to go higher."
Aurier has also been linked with Marseille, but he insists he would not be joining another French club.
"Another French club? I respect France but I would feel like betraying TFC if I would stay in Ligue 1."
Aurier currently has four years left on his current deal with Toulouse.
