Tottenham Hotspur chief Daniel Levy wants to offload Serge Aurier in January, however he does not feel confident he will get the figure he wants for him, according to a report by Football Insider.
The Ivorian has struggled to make an impact in north London since arriving from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 and the Spurs hierarchy are ready to sever ties with him.
However, Levy does not expect the club to recoup the £23m they spent on him and expects to make a significant loss as they are keen to get him off their wage bill.
Aurier has had a torrid time at Tottenham since joining the club and, despite having been given an opportunity to potentially prove his worth to the club, it does not appear to be getting any better for the Ivorian.
Having only made 45 appearances in his time as a Spurs player, the 26-year-old has gone on to play four matches across all competitions this season, however he has come in for some criticism regarding his performances.
He was heavily slated for his display against Southampton after he was shown a red card inside the opening 30 minutes, whilst he also drew negative reactions in the drubbing they suffered against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Indeed, Aurier raised questions about his Tottenham future recently as he revealed he wanted to leave in the summer – as well as mentioning that he did not feel there was any competition at Spurs for his place in the side.
Indeed, Aurier does not look to have done himself any favours with his antics and it certainly does not come as a surprise to hear that Levy wants to offload the Mauricio Pochettino misfit as soon as he can.
However, the Tottenham chief is going to be right not to be confident about being able to recoup their money for the Ivory Coast international, as the right-back is not showing any signs that he is worth the £20m+ that the club will likely be looking for.
