Tottenham Hotspur have had some problems at right-back so far this season. In fact, it looked as though the club were ready to shift on both of their first-team right-backs this summer.
Kieran Trippier was sold to Atletico Madrid, whilst Serge Aurier was being touted with a move for much of the summer.
The decision has backfired so far. Kyle Walker-Peters and Juan Foyth have battled injuries, preventing them from putting a stamp on the position. Even Davinson Sanchez has filled in the role.
The result has seen Aurier pulled in from the cold and he has, for the most part, impressed since being back involved with the Tottenham first-team.
However, it appears he is still wanted by other clubs. AC Milan were heavily linked with the player in the summer. Now, according to SportMediaset, as reported by TMW, Milan are still plotting on making a move for Aurier in January.
It comes amid dissatisfaction with the performances of Andrea Conti so far this season.
Milan were linked with the Ivorian in the summer. Soccer Link reported that the player wanted the move. However, they were not willing to pay the €25 million (£22m) Spurs wanted for the player.
Now it seems they are willing to go back in for Aurier this winter, but Tottenham will surely not be selling.
Spurs failed to bring in any cover at right-back and it is clear they are weak in that area without Trippier.
Selling Aurier in January would be an error that Tottenham must not pursue.
