Report: Nottingham Forest want Serge Aurier one year after Spurs exit

Serge Aurier could return to the Premier League one year after leaving Tottenham Hotspur, with RMC Sport in France reporting that Nottingham Forest want the right-back.

It is no secret that Forest have been incredibly busy this summer. Steve Cooper’s men have brought in a raft of signings following their promotion to the Premier League.

And they have strengthened at right-back, with the likes of Neco Williams and Giulian Biancone coming in. But it appears that they could look to add yet another signing.

According to RMC Sport, Forest are the side most interested in signing Aurier. The Ivory Coast international is a free agent after leaving Villarreal earlier in the summer.

Of course, a move to the City Ground would see Aurier return to England just one year after leaving Spurs. Tottenham released the 29-year-old after completing a deal for Emerson Royal.

Nottingham Forest want Serge Aurier

Forest have come under for a lot of scrutiny this summer. Many pundits are wondering just how all of their new signings are going to gel.

They are off to a very promising start with a win against West Ham, and a draw with Everton. And they also had to replace so many players over the summer.

They have done some shrewd business this summer. And signing Aurier would potentially be a low-risk move from Forest.

He had an interesting time at Tottenham. On his day, he was ‘outstanding‘. And, in truth, there were probably times early on last season when it seemed like Spurs could probably do with him in the ranks.

But he also made a number of costly mistakes. And it always seemed difficult for Spurs to rely on him.

It will be very interesting to see if he is now offered the chance to return to the Premier League.
