Exclusive: Paul Stewart urges Tottenham to sell Serge Aurier -Tottenham Hotspur News

Paul Stewart has exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that Nuno Espirito Santo must sell disaster waiting to happen Serge Aurier.

The Ivorian has generally been Tottenham’s first-choice right-back since Kieran Trippier departed for Atletico Madrid two years back, having been signed by Mauricio Pochettino in 2017.

Aurier showed signs of a revival under Jose Mourinho, contributing 10 goals in 42 matches during the Covid-hit 2019-2020 season, including eight assists.

But injuries and a major loss of form led to Aurier featuring in just half of Spurs’ Premier League games last season, with those all too familiar mistakes creeping back into the right-back’s game.

Only true Spurs fans will get 100% in this impossible 2020/2021 season quiz...who was Daniel Levy's first summer signing?

Aurier didn’t play a minute in any of Tottenham’s final three games under Ryan Mason, and with just one year remaining on his deal in north London, has openly expressed his desire to return to PSG.

Santo’s arrival could see an upturn in fortunes for Matt Doherty, who previously struggled during his first campaign at the club, which could allow Spurs to part ways with Aurier, a move which Stewart would be on board with.

He told The Transfer Tavern:

“I’m sorry, but I’m still staunch on my decision about Aurier, he’s got to move on. He’s not a good defender for sure, but then an attacking full-back? I don’t think he’s got that much quality to do that.

“If he does a Sissoko then I will be eating my words, but week in, week out he’s disappointed me all the time, and he’s got a mistake in him.”
