Report: Paris Saint-Germain want to re-sign Tottenham defender Serge Aurier

Tottenham defender Serge Aurier is reportedly attracting interest from his former club Paris Saint-Germain.

According to the Sun, PSG are among the teams in Ligue 1 that are looking to sign the 26-year-old.

It is understood that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is prepared to allow his exit this summer, but the club will look to bring in another full-back on loan before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

The report details that Aurier could be signed for the “right price” this summer after a mixed two-year spell in North London.

Spurs signed Aurier for £23million (BBC) back in 2017 from PSG and he could now be heading back to the French champions if they can strike a deal.

TBR’s View:

 

With Kieran Trippier already exiting Spurs this summer, it would be a bold move to get rid of another senior right-back in the shape of Aurier.

Young pair Kyle Walker-Peters and Juan Foyth are potential replacements in the squad for the position, but Spurs need to sign another if they intend on letting Aurier depart.

The situation with Aurier is a tricky one, as on his day he can be a decent defender and has all the attributes of a modern full-back.

But there is certainly a risk when playing him due to the rash nature of his game and injury problems have not helped him grow under Pochettino.

A return to France may be the best solution, but Spurs should look to recoup the money they spent on him two summers ago.
