Spurs confident of bargain deal for Serge Aurier


Tottenham are reportedly confident they will sign Serge Aurier before the end of the transfer window, beating several European clubs to the PSG full-back in the process.

That’s according to the Mirror, who report that the Ivory Coast international could be available for as little as £20million.

While he has a history of disciplinary problems and is still banned from entering the UK because of his conviction for assaulting a police officer last year, his signing would be a huge coup following the departure of Kyle Walker to Manchester City earlier this summer.

The 24-year-old has also been targeted by Chelsea, Juventus and Manchester United.

Kyle Walker-Peters’ performance against Newcastle has made Spurs’ need for a new right-back less urgent, but Mauricio Pochettino is reluctant to throw him in at the deep end just yet. Aurier, who can play in a variety of positions across the defence, would therefore provide competition for Kieran Trippier, with Walker-Peters used as an additional back-up.

The same source claim a move for Ajax’s Davinson Sanchez is also progressing.
