Spartak Moscow look to have ended their interest in Tottenham Hotspur right-back Serge Aurier, with The Daily Mail reporting that the Russian club are ready to prioritise a move for Chelsea’s Victor Moses instead.

Reports over the summer indicated that Aurier could be on his way out of Spurs (RMC Sport), with Spartak being one of the clubs being credited with an interest in the Tottenham man (Sky Sports).

The Ivory Coast international ended up staying in North London beyond last Monday’s deadline but Spartak are still said to be on the lookout for a new right-back, with the Russian transfer window open for another week.

The former PSG man got the nod to start for Spurs at Old Trafford last Sunday and put in a terrific attacking display, bagging a goal and an assist in the 6-1 win.

The Daily Mail now reveals that, although Spartak previously spoke to Aurier, they have now turned their attentions to Moses after the Chelsea man’s move to Inter Milan fell through on deadline day.

Going by his performances so far this season, the competition for his place after Doherty’s arrival seems to have done wonders for him.
