Tottenham Hotspur are keen to extend Serge Aurier’s stay at the club and will offer the defender a new deal in the coming weeks, according to the latest reports from France.

Aurier admitted to coming close to leaving Spurs last summer (Bal des Productions) after failing to hit the expected heights in his first two seasons in North London following his £23 million move from PSG (Guardian).

However, the 27-year-old’s fortunes at the club have turned around since the arrival of Jose Mourinho in November.

The Ivory Coast international has been given the license to get forward and has arguably been one of Tottenham’s most improved players this season.

The Daily Mail reported last month that the right-back’s future at Tottenham could be vulnerable as the club were looking to sign Norwich starlet Max Aarons.

However, Le10Sport reveals that Mourinho wants Spurs to hang on to Aurier and the club will now offer him an extension.

It is said that the defender is enjoying life under the Portuguese coach and is likely to commit his future to the Lilywhites.

Irrespective of whether Aurier continues to be our first-choice right-back, he has certainly shown enough this season to warrant an extension. If we were to land Thomas Meunier, which seems increasingly likely, perhaps the competition for places will help push the Ivorian to perform on a consistent basis.
