Report: Tottenham are now 'frantically' trying to sell £23m man at last minute... but there's a problem
Tottenham Hotspur are ‘frantically’ trying to sell Serge Aurier according to the Sun’s live blog (13:19).
Getting a move
Tottenham want Aurier out of the door, but the issue is that the Ivorian is playing hardball with them.
Aurier apparently wants a bigger pay off to leave Spurs, as he looks to secure more money.
If he does stick around the £23 million man (BBC Sport) may well be harming his own career though.
Tottenham are set to sign Emerson, which is set to leave Aurier even further down the pecking order.
Under Nuno it seems that he has fallen all the way down to fourth choice.
Aurier is now behind Japhet Tanganga and Matt Doherty in the selection order, and Emerson is expected to become first choice in time.
If Aurier does leave Spurs it will be a boost to their finances.
The right-back is on a considerable wage and should still posses some value to Tottenham, even if they won’t get the full fee back that they initially paid for him.
Aurier has been a frustrating player throughout his time at Tottenham, in truth.
While he did improve last season, he was never able to cut errors out of his game.
And it seems that Nuno has decided that he is surplus to requirements at Spurs now.
