According to a report in The Telegraph, Serge Aurier is now likely to stay at Tottenham Hotspur but the North Londoners are open to allow Paulo Gazzaniga, Cameron Carter-Vickers, and Ryan Sessegnon to leave before Monday’s transfer deadline.
The report also predicted that Juan Foyth would be granted an exit, which was confirmed by Spurs today as the defender joined Villareal on loan.
Aurier has fallen down the pecking order since the arrival of Matt Doherty, with the Ivorian starting just two of Tottenham’s first seven matches of the campaign.
The defender continues to be linked with a move to AC Milan, with The Daily Mail reporting a week ago that the Serie A giants remain in talks with the Lilywhites over the 27-year-old.
However, other reports indicate that Jose Mourinho wants the former PSG man to stay at the club (Football.London’s Rob Guest).
It now looks as though the Tottenham boss is about to get his wish with The Telegraph claiming that Aurier is not one of the players the club are expected to move on before the window shuts.
The report suggests that Spurs are looking to cash-in on Gazzaniga and Carter-Vickers, and will try to loan out Sessegnon as they have done with Foyth.

Selling Aurier without replacing him would have put us in the exact same situation as last season as we would have been left with just one natural right-back in the squad. I cannot see Jose trusting Gedson and Tanganga to play more than a handful of games in the position. So, if we have genuine ambitions of contesting on all four fronts, we cannot let Aurier leave.
