Revealed: Why this Tottenham star did not feature against Wolves in the PL encounter

Journalist reveals if injury or transfer was the reason behind Serge Aurier missing Wolves win

According to the knowledge of Evening Standard journalist Dan Kilpatrick, Serge Aurier did not feature in the Tottenham Hotspur matchday squad against Wolverhampton Wanderers due to a potential injury issue.

The absence, according to him, is not related to a potential transfer. Aurier has had to share gametime this season on the right flank alongside Matt Doherty and Japhet Tanganga.

However, the Ivorian started and played the full 90 minutes in the last five league games for the Lilywhites. And this is why his exclusion against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side confused some fans.

Serge Aurier is linked with a transfer move from Tottenham Hotspur to PSG.

The injury is reported to be in his groin but the extent of it has not been revealed yet. Instead of him, Tanganga started the game on the right side of Spurs’ 4-man backline.

Has Aurier played his last game for Spurs?

Aurier has been linked with an exit in the past week. It was reported that French club PSG, headed by former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, are keen on signing the 28-year-old and bringing him back to Ligue 1.

The question now arises if Spurs can manage to lose him. Tanganga is not a natural right-back and is more comfortable playing as a centre-back.

Matt Doherty has been inconsistent since his move from Wolves. In such a scenario, losing Aurier would mean either settling with starting Doherty and/or Tanganga, or dipping into the transfer market.

Aurier’s exclusion did not prove to be costly on Sunday as Ryan Mason’s men cruised to a 2-0 win against Wolves. A Harry Kane goal just minutes before halftime and a Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg tap-in were enough to hand Spurs all three points on the day.
