According to RMC Sport (as relayed by GFFN), Tottenham Hotspur are keen to cash in on Serge Aurier when the transfer window opens.

Aurier has successfully seen off competition from last summer’s signing Matt Doherty to remain Tottenham’s first-choice right-back for the majority of the season.

However, the Ivorian, whose current contract with Spurs has just over 12 months left to run, has been plagued by inconsistency since the turn of the year and was once again disappointing in yesterday’s 3-1 defeat at Leeds.

RMC Sport claims that Tottenham are prepared to sell the 28-year-old if they receive an offer of around €10m (£8.7m) this summer.

The report suggests that Aurier is on Paris Saint-Germain’s radar, with the Ligue 1 club unlikely to take up the option to buy Italian international right-back Alessandro Florenzi from AS Roma.

It is said that Aurier would be open to a move back to his former club but the Parisians could face competition from both Atletico Madrid and AC Milan for the Tottenham player this summer.

Aurier moved to White Hart Lane in the summer of 2017 for £23million, signing a five-year contract (BBC).

Spurs Web Opinion

Spurs have no choice to sell Aurier this summer if the right-back does not sign a new contract. While I would like to see Doherty handed a fresh start next season, I would not be displeased if the club decided to cash in on both of our senior right-backs and bring in someone like Max Aarons, leaving Tanganga as our main back up option for next season.
