Spartak Moscow confident of signing Serge Aurier from Tottenham
The 27-year-old joined Tottenham in the summer of 2017 from Paris Saint-Germain in a deal worth £23m. However, he had to wait until the 2019/20 season to become a permanent fixture in the starting XI, with Kieran Trippier leaving the club.
Aurier ended the previous campaign with two goals and eight assists from 42 appearances across all competitions. However, following the signing of Matt Doherty from Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier this summer, Aurier has fallen down the pecking order.
In fact, the Ivory Coast international hasn’t featured in any of our three games in the new season. As per the report, Tottenham remain keen on offloading him, along with a few other players like Juan Foyth.
Aurier had previously been linked with AC Milan, as well as Bayer Leverkusen. However, now, it is being claimed that Spartak Moscow have registered an interest in the 27-year-old right-back. (h/t Sky Sports)
The Russian giants are reported to have made enquiries for the services of Aurier and are increasingly confident of striking an agreement in the coming days. It is also claimed that the player himself would be open to a move as his first-team chances will reduce at Spurs this season. (h/t Sky Sports)

Aurier had his moments last season, but was a liability defensively. However, selling him without any proper cover at right-back might become a problem, unless Jose Mourinho plans on using Japhet Tanganga at right-back permanently moving forward.
