Tottenham want £35m for Serge Aurier amid AC Milan interest
The 27-year-old Aurier joined Tottenham from French giants Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2017, in a deal worth £23m. Having been behind Kieran Trippier in his first two seasons at the club, the right-back became the first-choice in the 2019/20 term.
Aurier was largely impressive going forward, but has been quite unreliable defensively. The Ivorian finished the season with two goals and eight assists from 42 appearances across all competitions.
AC Milan have made their interest known in the right-back, with club director Paolo Maldini confirming that the club are in negotiations with Spurs for the transfer. It has even been claimed that Aurier has also agreed to move to San Siro this summer.

Aurier still has two years left on his contract with Tottenham. However, it seems like the club is prepared to offload in the ongoing window. This would leave us in a precarious position as far as the right-back slot is concerned, given that Kyle Walker-Peters is closing in on a permanent transfer to Southampton.
Japhet Tanganga has been used as a right-back previously by Jose. But should Aurier be sold, it goes without saying that the club will need to bring in an experienced replacement.
