Opinion: Why Tottenham should keep Serge Aurier at the club for the time being

In my opinion, Serge Aurier represents an absolute must-sell for Tottenham this transfer window as he probably has the highest value out of any exposable assets at the club.

The likes of Juan Foyth, Danny Rose, Cameron Carter-Vickers, and co are not likely to bring in high fees even if Spurs do sell them on this summer. However, Aurier could fetch up to and around £20m if Daniel Levy plays his cards right.

Having said that, I do believe that Tottenham should keep Aurier around for the time being and that is largely down to the unique transfer window we find ourselves in.

The summer window doesn’t actually shut until October, a good few weeks into the new season, meaning that Spurs could introduce or lose players well beyond their first match.

If the North London club progress successful in both the Europa League qualifiers and early Carabao Cup rounds, then they could find themselves with 9 fixtures inside the first 21 days (Sky Sports).

Therefore, Spurs should look to split their squad into the first team and second team, with the former concentrating on the Premier League and the latter on Europa League and Carabao Cup matches.

While Matt Doherty would make my Premier League side, Serge Aurier could provide some incredible experience to the B-team for the first three weeks.

Not only that, but Daniel Levy could use these initial games to put Aurier in the shop window and try to offload him late to a club desperate for a new right-back.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I do see your point of view, but for me he is still too much of a liability even for our second team. Constantly giving the ball away, needless fouls/free-kicks and bookings. I say get rid now.
