Report: £70k-a-week Tottenham ace wanted by German side, Spurs willing to do business

Tottenham Hotspur right-back Serge Aurier is being eyed by Bayer Leverkusen and Spurs could be willing to sell to raise funds for other targets, according to a Sky Sports report.

Aurier moved to Tottenham in 2017 from French giants Paris Saint-Germain in a deal worth around £23million.

To date, the Ivory Coast international has made 83 appearances in all competitions for Spurs, including 42 last season.

Aurier was omitted from the starting line-up for the opening matches of last season under Mauricio Pochettino but has thrived under new boss Jose Mourinho.

However, speculation linking the 27-year-old with a departure from London has increased in recent weeks.

According to Sky Sports, Leverkusen – who finished fifth in the Bundesliga last term – have joined AC Milan in pursuit of Aurier.

 

The report also reckons that Tottenham are willing to do business to fund other targets and could be allowed to leave for the right price.

Aurier’s contract, worth a reported £70,000-a-week, runs until the summer of 2022.

TBR View:

Right-back is arguably Tottenham’s most pressing area in terms of reinforcements, with Aurier finishing the campaign as the only senior recognised player in that position.

However, some of his performances over the course of the season came for criticism by sections of the Spurs fanbase, with inconsistency and errors still affecting some of his displays.

It looks as though Tottenham are willing to move him on for the right price, but if they don’t bring someone else in first – in fact, they should probably aim for two – it’s a huge risk.
