Over the past week or so, we’ve seen an increased number of articles involving the possibility of Serge Aurier leaving Tottenham.
Despite playing fairly regularly, the Ivory Coast international appears to be close to the end of his stay in London, with many clubs supposedly interested in his services.
Reports from France claim Spurs would be happy to let him go if they received a fee of around €10-12m, and with Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Milan all after him, there is a good chance of a bid coming in.
While the La Liga side’s interest was reported on Monday, Tuesday sees the other two being linked once more by the Italian and French press.
Starting with the former, it’s Calciomercato who state the Serie A side are ‘looking to the future’, and want to bolster the right hand side of their defence with an ‘experienced player’.
For them, the man suitable for the job is Serge Aurier, said to be ‘on his way out from Tottenham’.
As for the Paris Saint-Germain interest, it comes from Le Parisien, who make it clear Alessandro Florenzi doesn’t appear to be in the club’s plans going forward and should return to AS Roma.
To replace him, it’s said the Ligue 1 side ‘see Serge Aurier occupying that role going forward’, with the newspaper recalling how Mauricio Pochettino used to work with him during his time at Tottenham, thus knowing exactly what he’d be getting should the player be signed.
