The highly-rated defender was handed his senior debut at Lens in 2009 while still in his teens and was snapped up by Toulouse in 2012.
He has impressed at Ligue 1 level, earning him international recognition with Ivory Coast.
The 20-year-old is now being linked with moves to England, or a potential title challenger in France, and admits he is flattered to be the centre of attention.
Aurier said: "I would like to perform at the top level and play against top opponents every week.
"I am enjoying my international career so far. I love the national team, they have been great for me.
"Everton are a top team and if they show interest in you it means a lot. I am just trying to stay relaxed about things.
"Marseille are a top club in France and when they show interest you cannot ignore it, you have to listen."
