This summer brings up the two year anniversary of Serge Aurier being at Tottenham, although the chances are he may not make it until the 31st August, which was the date he was signed for £23 million in 2017, as France Football has claimed that he’ll be sold this summer. You can read the story on the TEAMtalk website, but the fans aren’t happy.

The Lilywhites are all of the agreement that Serge Aurier is the best right-back they have at the club at the moment, even if that isn’t saying much at all. The only reason that the Ivorian can claim that tag is because he’s competing with Kieran Trippier, who is still struggling to find the form he managed at the World Cup last summer, with Spurs suffering as a result of the defender’s awful performances.
Of the three right-backs that the club have on their books at the moment, only Kyle Walker-Peters is one who the fans are happy to keep over the summer, and whilst they seem gutted that Aurier could be on his way out, it’s only because that implies Trippier will stay. Mauricio Pochettino has used Aurier as his Champions League right-back with Trippier in the Premier League, and if one of them was to go the fans are all in agreement it should be Trippier.

He’s better than Trippier

Not saying much if he’s ‘miles better than tripper. None of our RB’s are good enough. That boy from palace or Doherty from wolves wouldn’t be a bad shout

Only if Trippier goes too and we get AWB.

Can’t they sell Trippier instead?
— Daniel Barker (@danielbarker7) April 1, 2019
I'd sell all of our right backs TBH

Why? He’s more consistent than Trippier!

Better than Trippier

Good, him and trippier both aren’t good enough
— Henry (@henryfair) April 1, 2019
The feeling isn’t that Spurs fans want to keep Aurier, they’d just rather see Trippier go if it was between the two and in an ideal world both would be on the move when the summer comes around.
