Transfer News: Tottenham defender Serge Aurier a target for AC Milan

According to transfer news from Calciomercato (h/t Football.london), Serie A giants AC Milan have identified Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier as one of the candidates to bolster their right-back department.

Aurier has been with Tottenham since 2017, having signed from PSG but has never quite convinced enough to become an undisputed starter for Tottenham. Having been behind Kieran Trippier in the pecking order in his first two years at the club, he was the first-choice last season but failed to impress, prompting the club to sign Matt Doherty last summer.

However, with the Irishman proving to be a dud, Aurier remained the preferred option at right-back in the last term. And even though there have been some positive displays every now and then, the 28-year-old remains a liability for Spurs.

Having now entered the final year of his £70,000-a-week contract with the club, Aurier confirmed earlier this summer that he had an agreement with Tottenham to leave in the ongoing transfer market. The Athletic also reported earlier this week that the Lilywhites had asked Aurier, along with two other players, to find new clubs for themselves.

And, it seems like Aurier may have found a suitor for himself already, with AC Milan keen on signing him. The Rossoneri director, Frederic Massara, is said to know the Ivory Coast international and wanted to sign him last summer as well. And, he could get his wishes this summer, although Milan are also looking at Diogo Dalot of Manchester United and Real Madrid’s Alvaro Odriozola as options. (h/t Football.london)

So, as things stand, Aurier seems to be certainly on his way out of the club this summer. Whether he ends up at AC Milan or a different team remains to be seen though.

As for Tottenham, the club already seems to be preparing for life without Aurier, having made significant progress in securing a transfer for Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu, who can play at right-back and centre-back.
