Serge Aurier is reportedly linked with a move to Serie A side AC Milan as talks over a potential transfer begins between both clubs.
After falling down the pecking order under previous head coach Mauricio Pochettino, Serge Aurier has found new life under Jose Mourinho.
The departure of Kieran Trippier to Atlético Madrid last summer helped cement Aurier’s spot in the Spurs starting eleven.
AC Milan begins talks for Serge Aurier
According to the Guardian’s Fabrizio Romano, AC Milan are now interested in signing the 27-year-old and have contacted Tottenham over a potential transfer.
Stefano Pioli’s plans to bolster his squad for the coming season are underway after he recently signing a two-year contract extension keeping at the Italian side.
It is reported that AC Milan have outlined Aurier as a possible replacement for either Davide Calabria or Andrea Conti, with the duo linked with a move away from the San Siro.
With two years left on his current contract, the North London Club will hold out for a £23million fee for the defender, according to the Mail. This equals the amount paid to Paris Saint-Germain to secure his signature in 2017.
Kyle Walker-Peters, who is Spurs’ only recognizable right-back besides Aurier, could also be headed out of the club.
Following a successful loan spell at the Saint Mary’s Stadium, Southampton are keen on signing the 23-year-old permanently.
Tottenham face a daunting task of filling the right-back void created should both Aurier and Walker-Peters call it quits at the club.
Aurier was in potent form for Tottenham last season. He scored two goals while providing eight assists in 38 appearances across all competitions.
