Tottenham Hotspur fans would be forgiven if they were bouncing all over the place with the past couple of weeks that they have had. Spurs finally moved into their new stadium and remain unbeaten, which is all the more impressive considering they beat Manchester City in their Champions League quarter-final first leg earlier in the week.
However, those celebrations should not distract them from the fact that Mauricio Pochettino’s side needs to undergo some changes in the summer and one report may suggest that they have the perfect chance to cut their losses on one of their players.
What’s the News?
According to Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness), Serge Aurier has been attracting interest from Inter Milan.
The Serie A outfit require a new right-back in the summer with the likes of Cedric Soares and Sime Vrsaljko not quite cutting it and it is understood the club’s director of football, Piero Ausilio, has been monitoring the Ivorian.
Aurier is certainly on the fringes at Tottenham at the moment and should the chance to cash in on him arise, Pochettino must surely look to do so.
The Ivorian has become second fiddle to Kieran Trippier at times throughout the campaign, despite the England international being far from his best either, it would not be surprising to see Spurs in the market for their own new right-back in the summer.
Valued at £18million (per Transfermarkt), Aurier has made just 17 appearances across all competitions for Spurs and has not really lived up to the hype many of the north London’s faithful would have had for him when he joined them from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.
However, whether there is any truth to the rumours remains to be seen, as Tottenham may ask Inter for a transfer figure that the Italians may deem too high for them to part with.
Tottenham fans, what do you make of the interest in Aurier? Should the club look to cash in on him in the summer? Join in with the discussion below by sharing your thoughts with us.
