Tottenham rebuffed an attempt from AC Milan to sign Serge Aurier, according to Tuttosport.

Milan are on the hunt for a new right-back and have drawn up a list of potential signings for the January transfer window.

Tuttosport say that Aurier was on that list and the Serie A club have already ‘tested the ground’ about a possible transfer.

They say Milan saw Aurier as a perfect signing as not only does he have international experience but he’s also at the right age to deal with a move to a new league without any problems adapting.

Unfortunately for them, Tottenham rejected their advances because they are not in a position to let him go.

After selling Kieran Trippier to Atlético Madrid in the summer, they were left with just Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters to fill the right-back spot.

Such is their lack of depth in the position, Davinson Sánchez has also played in the position, although that was an experiment that did not work out well for either party.

Thus, the interest from Milan was quickly rebuffed by Tottenham, with Stefano Pioli’s side now left looking elsewhere.

For reasons known only by Tuttosport, they used a picture of Danny Rose instead.
