Personal Terms Agreed: Tottenham Hotspur Close In On First Summer Signing

published :

Tottenham are close to signing their first player of the transfer window according to reports coming in from France. L’Equipe (h/t Football London) claims that we have agreed personal terms with Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier ahead of a possible transfer.

That would come as a huge relief to many Spurs fans as we had lost Kyle Walker to Manchester City a few weeks back but had not signed any player to replace him. Kyle Walker-Peters certainly came good in the 2-0 win over Newcastle United on the first day of the season but we would still need cover for the right-back spot. However, with Kieran Trippier’s injury, we still need one more signing and it seems like Aurier is the man for the job.

The Ivorian has had a troubled time during his stay in the French league and has been marginalised over the past few seasons. The club are said to be willing to let him go for the right amount but there seems to be a bit of a bidding war set to take place for the 24-year-old.

Italian Clubs Looking To Sign Aurier

Serie A giants Juventus and Inter Milan have also reportedly registered their interest in the defender and it does seem like Aurier moving to Italy is a higher possibility than coming to the Premier League.

Aurier was involved in a fracas during last season’s visit to London during the Champions League and that could be one major reason why Spurs or any other club would be wary of signing him up. It was also stated in another report that the Ivorian was having trouble getting a work permit for the UK and that could splash water on any hopes of us signing him up.

It does seem like the Ivorian will be playing for one of the major Italian clubs in the near future, which might be a good thing as we would not want a player with a bad reputation ruining the team chemistry and harmony.

Even without any new signings, we did look good against Newcastle but there would be concern if we pick up major injuries as the campaign will be long and tough. Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy will be working hard behind the screens and the sooner we can get some players in, the better it would be, not only for the fans but also for our players.
