Despite being a little inconsistent in a Tottenham shirt, the club should look at giving their defender Serge Aurier a new contract and his form under manager Jose Mourinho proves he deserves one.
According to the Daily Mail, Spurs are set to hold discussions about the future of the 27-year-old as they look to work out his future and whether or not he deserves a new contract.
The right-back signed a five-year deal back in 2017 when he joined, meaning next summer he’ll be entering the final year of his contract at the North London club.
Aurier has shown some flashes of brilliance in a Spurs shirt alongside some poor performances, but the appointment of Mourinho last November looks like a turning point in his time at the club.
The Ivory Coast international is continuing to try improve defensively, while going forward he’s a major threat with his pace and he’s got 15 assists in 87 games for Spurs.
Spurs are set to weigh up the future of Aurier, but it should be a no-brainer to extend his stay a couple more years.
The arrival this summer of Wolverhampton Wanderers right-back Matt Doherty has proven to be positive for him and the competition for the full-back position should bring the best out of both players.
Aurier, who earns £70,000-a-week (Spotrac), can be a rash defender at times that is overzealous, but is proving to be an important part of the squad that moving forward can prove his importance.
