Deal Imminent: Tottenham Could Finally Complete £23m Signing Of Ivory Coast Star As Work Permit Has Been Granted

Published

on

It is good news for Serge Aurier as the Ivory Coast international has been granted work permit by the Home Office, as reported by The Independent. This should pave way for the 24-year-old defender to join Tottenham Hotspur.

It has been a long summer of wait for the defender, who was courted by multiple Premier League clubs. Initially, it was thought Manchester United were leading the race for his signature and the player himself was interested in moving to Old Trafford.

However, it is Spurs who are now front-runners for the Paris Saint-Germain right-back’s signature. Mauricio Pochettino sees him as an ideal replacement for Kyle Walker and a £23million deal has been agreed with PSG last week. A five-year contract has been agreed with the player.

The transfer was held up because of Aurier’s conviction last year when he was charged with assaulting a police officer outside a nightclub. The player was barred from entering the UK on the orders of the Home Office which prevented him from playing against Arsenal in the Champions League last November.

But, the permit has finally been granted after initial delays which mean that Aurier is now all set to complete his move to North London.

The player took to social media to express happiness at the decision after it was understood that PSG had set a midday deadline for the work permit to be granted.

Once the deal is completed, Aurier will become the fourth addition for Spurs this summer after a quiet start. Davinson Sanchez joined from Ajax in a club-record deal, while Paulo Gazzaniga has been signed from Southampton as a third-choice goalkeeper. Young centre-half Juan Foyth has become the latest addition.

There would be further additions before the deadline as the club is looking at Ross Barkley as well. There is interest in Demarai Gray as well but for now, it looks like at least one deal is over the line.

Do you think Serge Aurier is a good addition this summer?
