Tottenham Hotspur have already played with three different right-backs this season.

Following the summer sale of Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid, Mauricio Pochettino has already used Kyle Walker-Peters, Davinson Sanchez and Serge Aurier on the right side of his defence.

Walker-Peters started the first three matches of the Premier League camapign before a hamstring injury forced him off in the defeat to Newcastle United.

Sanchez looked out of his depth in the North London derby while Aurier impressed in the win against Crystal Palace and also was one of Tottenham’s better performers in the defeat to Leicester City.

Aurier looked to have doubled Tottenham’s lead against the Foxes, only for VAR to chalk off the goal.

The Ivorian admitted recently that he wanted to leave the club this summer but was prevented from doing so and after holding talks with the Spurs hierachy, stated that he was happy to remain in North London (Sky Sports).

Italian news outlet SportMediaset are reporting that AC Milan are still keen on a potential move for the former PSG player in January.

The report claims that Milan have not been impressed with Andrea Conti’s efforts this season and could make an approach for Aurier.


If Aurier were to depart in January, it would likely mean that Juan Foyth would be primed to be Totteham’s first choice right-back, however the Argentine is yet to appear this season after picking up an ankle problem in the Audi Cup win against Bayern Munich.
