'We’ve been lead astray', 'Shame': Some Tottenham fans react as reported transfer is now off
Tottenham defender Serge Aurier won’t be making a summer transfer to PSG this year.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Ligue 1 club have rejected the idea of signing their former right-back. Moreover, Inter Milan defender Achraf Hakimi is PSG’s number one transfer target for the position this summer.
Furthermore, in an interview with L’Equipe, Aurier revealed that he is open to leaving Tottenham this summer. The defender joined Spurs in the summer of 2017 as a replacement for Kyle Walker.
Serge Aurier will make summer transfer
Despite featuring heavily for Spurs over the past four seasons, the Ivorian fullback has yet to win over supporters. Whilst his form for the north London club under both Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho has been inconsistent.
And fans on social media are irked that Aurier won’t be leaving for PSG this summer. Rumours of a return to the French capital have been rife over the past few weeks. However, it appears that a deal is all-but off.
Here’s what some Tottenham supporters had to say about PSG declining the chance to sign Aurier on Twitter…

Reality check for Serge. Just the same as Rose with his move to Milan. Lets hope we don’t get stuck with him.— Sven524 (@sven524) June 15, 2021
Indeed, Aurier is expected to be one of multiple Tottenham players to leave the club this summer. As reported by Football London, Moussa Sissoko could also depart Spurs this summer.
