Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier has been speaking about his future at the club this week. Featuring on the Canal Football Club with his Spurs team-mate Moussa Sissoko he explained he has no desire to leave Spurs at present but admits things can happen quickly in football.
“In football things can happen very quickly. For the moment I do not desire to leave Tottenham. For the moment, I am very happy.
“This season I have been interrupted by injury more than anything else, but life is like that. I will have to see what will happen.”
Tottenham, however, will surely have to consider moving him on this summer.
Spurs fans have never really seen the best of Aurier. As reported by The Guardian, Tottenham paid £23 million for the player in 2017 after he fell out of favour with PSG.
Since then, he has been beset by injury trouble and this season has played just 17 times for the club.
But he showed what he is capable of in excellent displays over the two legs against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
So do Spurs keep him?
On the one hand, Tottenham need players they can trust to be fit every week. With a small squad and plenty of games to be played, Aurier has proved a liability.
On the other, the Ivory Coast international is clearly capable of being a star for Spurs. With Kieran Trippier’s form dipping dramatically this season and talk of an exit, Aurier might be like a new signing for Tottenham next season.
The club should stick by him and hope he can stay fit.
