With Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier possibly leaving north London this summer, Jose Mourinho will need to recruit at least one new right-back in the transfer window.
The ex-Paris Saint-Germain ace is arguably one of the Premier League’s better-performing right-backs on his day, but those games are few and far between.
Aurier is currently the only recognised right-back after Kyle Walker-Peters was sold to Southampton, which has put the Portuguese in quite a predicament.
If the Ivorian leaves, the Lilywhites will need to sign a suitable replacement. However, Mourinho will have a only short amount of time to find a solution to the problem before the Premier League starts again in several weeks.
Norwich are demanding £30m for their academy graduate, amid rumoured interest from Bayern Munich.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has made it clear he wants to sell the 27-year-old for somewhere in the region of the £23m he paid Paris Saint-Germain three years ago,
Admittedly, Aurier earned a higher WhoScored rating than Aarons last term, but the 20-year-old averaged more blocks per game and drew more fouls. Simply put, Aarons could turn out to be a valuable asset if Levy is willing to stump up the cash for the defender in the summer, as he still has plenty of time to continue his development as a player.
The five-cap England U21 international possess the natural ability to take the next step in his career and could be an absolute bargain if Spurs can convince the Canaries to sell him for less than the quoted price.
