Report: £70k-a-week Tottenham star turns down transfer to European club



Serge Aurier turns down Spartak Moscow transfer

According to Football Insider (h/t, Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier has turned down an opportunity to join Russian outfit Spartak Moscow this summer.

The 27-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the club, following the summer arrival of Matt Doherty from Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Ivory Coast international did not feature in any of the club’s first three matches of the new season.

It is believed that Tottenham are ready to cash in on the former Paris Saint-Germain star this summer. And, Spartak Moscow were keen on signing up the right-back. In fact, it was claimed that the Russian heavyweights were confident of getting the deal over the line this summer. (h/t Sky Sports)

However, as per the latest update, the £70,000-a-week star has refused to take up the opportunity to move to the Russian outfit. (h/t

Since joining the club back in 2017, Aurier had largely played second fiddle to Kieran Trippier until the latter’s departure last summer. The Ivorian was Jose Mourinho’s first-choice right-back throughout the last season and saw plenty of game time. Aurier featured 42 times in all competitions, registering two goals and eight assists.

However, his first-team prospects look bleak now that Doherty seems to be Mourinho’s preferred choice at right-back this season.

Given the need of a new striker and a centre-back, it is imperative that Tottenham cash in on players that are not part of the manager’s plans. But, with Aurier refusing a move to Russia, it remains to be seen what the club decides to do.

There has been interest from the likes of AC Milan and Bayer Leverkusen in the past. But things have gone quiet on that front of late.
