Report: Spurs defender set to push for summer move away with little desire to sign new deal

Tottenham defender Serge Aurier is expected to push for a move away from the Lilywhites this summer, according to the Evening Standard.

The report suggests Spurs were willing to allow the Ivory Coast international to depart last summer, however, they did not receive an offer which matched their valuation of the right-back.

With just two years now left on his current contract, the report indicates the former PSG man has no desire to extend his stay at the N17 side and will be looking to depart once again.

His departure would leave Spurs with only one recognised right-back on the books in the form of Kyle Walker-Peters – who is also being tipped for the exit.

The English Under-21 international is currently out on loan at Southampton and it is expected he could be used as part of a potential deal to secure the services of the Saints’ Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg or potentially even just a straight £10m deal to the south coast side (The Sun).

Spurs Web Opinion

I, for one, would have no issue with Aurier leaving this summer. Personally, I am not a fan of his at all. However, unlike when we let Kieran Trippier leave last summer, we must replace him sufficiently. I think Jose Mourinho knows that but getting it through to the board is another thing.
