Tottenham legend Graham Roberts believes it was the right decision to let Serge Aurier move on from the club this summer, and revealed that he would not be bothered if the Ivorian joined bitter rivals Arsenal.
The 28-year-old mutually agreed to have his contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium terminated on deadline day, meaning he is now a free agent and available to sign with any club that shows interest.
Spurs had reportedly been actively looking for a potential suitor for the Ivorian full-back throughout the summer, but were unsuccessful in doing so.
Aurier did not play a single minute for Spurs this season and was sat behind the likes of Japhet Tanganga and Matt Doherty in the pecking order.
His Spurs career was all-but confirmed as dead after the club also announced the signing of Brazilian right-back Emerson Royal on deadline day.
Sky Sports reported the former Spurs man could even make the move across the North London divide to rivals Arsenal, and he would consider joining Mikel Arteta’s side.
But while some would be disappointed if Aurier joined The Gunners, ex-Spurs man Roberts claims he would not care and would drive him to the Emirates Stadium himself.
Roberts told Football FanCast: “He had his time at the football club. What makes you laugh is all the papers are putting in there that he’s going to Arsenal. I’ll drive him! I don’t mind.”

Aurier divided opinion during his time at Spurs, but while he was streaky and prone to an error in the box, you couldn’t fault his effort. Although he isn’t Spurs’ property anymore, it would still be very disappointing to see him cross the north London divide.
