Tottenham Hotspur begain their Premier League campaign with a home victory against Aston Villa yesterday evening.

While the majority of discussion regarding Mauricio Pochettino’s team selection may have been surrounding Jan Vertonghen’s omission from the squad, the manager decided to include Serge Aurier among the substitutes.

Aurier did not play a minute of Tottenham’s pre-season matches following his involvement in the Ivory Coast’s African Cup of Nations along with the need to undergo hand surgery (Spurs official).

Spurs fans have reacted to reports that the right-back has told his Tottenham team-mates that he wants to leave the club following interest from former club PSG and AC Milan (Daily Mail).

With the transfer window still open some European leagues until September 2nd, there is still ample time for the 26-year-old to leave.

Kyle Walker-Peters certainly showed during his performance against Aston Villa that he is more than capable of stepping up following the departure of Kieran Trippier.

However, if Aurier is to depart it will leave Spurs with only one natural right-back in Walker-Peters and would have to look to utilise the likes of Moussa Sissoko in the position if required.

Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted on Twitter to the transfer speculation.
