Tottenham Hotspur ended the 2020/21 Premier League campaign with only one senior right-back within their ranks.
Following the arrival of Jose Mourinho in late December, Serge Aurier became the club’s first choice in the position after finding himself struggling for game time at the start of the campaign.
After selling Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid in the summer and deciding against replacing him, Mauricio Pochettino decided to start Kyle Walker-Peters at right-back for the first three matches of the season before suffering a hamstring injury and found himself playing the second half of the campaign on the south coast with Southampton.
Pochettino then decided to try out other players in the role including Davinson Sanchez and Moussa Sissoko which saw the Ivorian admitted to coming close to leaving Tottenham last summer (Bal des Productions).
Aurier is once again being linked with a potential exit from North London with Italian giants AC Milan said to be keen on the 27-year-old (Daily Mail).
The report claims that the Rossoneri are prepared to pay around £12million, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is insistent on receiving the full £23million which they paid Paris Saint-Germain in August 2017.
Levy is said to have set a strict transfer budget with the club having to sell if they are to raise funds for any substantial expenditure.
