Spartak Moscow drop interest in Tottenham Hotspur star Serge Aurier

According to Goal (h/t Football.london), Spartak Moscow have cooled their interest in Tottenham Hotspur star Serge Aurier.

The Ivory Coast international joined Spurs in 2017 from French champions PSG. He initially spent the first two seasons behind Kieran Trippier. Aurier became the first-choice right-back last season following Tripper’s departure to Atletico Madrid.

Despite the increase in stature, Aurier has enjoyed mixed fortunes. An attacking tour-de-force down the right, he is also a defensive liability at the back.

Apart from his inconsistency on the pitch, his actions off it failed to redeem him as well. This led to rumours that Tottenham were set to sell him this summer.

Interest in the 27-year-old was high, with the likes of AC Milan keen to secure his signing. Moreover, Spurs signed Matt Doherty which pushed Aurier down the pecking order.

With Spartak now out of the picture, the player looks set to stay on at the Lane this season. Aurier, to his credit, has impressed when called upon this season.

He was particularly impressive in the 6-1 demolition of Manchester United at Old Trafford. He set up Son Heung-Min in the first half before scoring himself after the break.

Serge Aurier set to for Tottenham stay

With both Doherty and Aurier now at the club, Spurs have proper options to call upon at right back. Given that we also have Sergio Reguilon and Ben Davies on the other flank, this is the best our full-back options have looked for some time now.

A major reason for Spartak cooling their interest in Aurier is them closing in on a deal for Victor Moses. The Chelsea wing-back looks set to join the Russians on a loan.

Given Aurier’s performances this season, his stay could be a blessing for us. With a long and busy season ahead of us, strength in depth has become more of a necessity rather than a luxury.
