According to an update courtesy of Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio via Milan News, Serie A giants AC Milan are still interested in a swoop for Tottenham star Serge Aurier – with the six-time Champions League winners showing a firm interest.
Despite this, the 27-year-old defender is a proven tough-tackler in the top flight, averaging the most challenges per 90 out of any Tottenham player last campaign bar Japhet Tanganga according to WhoScored.
His stats also show that he crosses more often than star player Son Heung-min, with all these variables potentially enticing Milan into contemplating a move.
Currently valued at £14.4 million by Transfermarkt, chairman Daniel Levy will arguably want more bang for his buck, especially considering the Lilywhites paid £23 million to secure his signature back in 2017.
Now, with Milan’s interest, Levy could have a chance to pocket at least some of the transfer fee which brought Aurier to north London – and Tuttosport via Milan Live claim the club are looking for a long term replacement for Davide Calabria.
The Italian giants have already turned down two offers for the defender as they hold out for a suitable offer, but once their business there has been concluded, it looks as if they will turn full attention to Aurier as a successor.
Whether or not Spurs sell the right-back remains to be seen, but increased reports suggest it could be an option for Levy to balance the books.
Spurs fans, is it time for Aurier to go? Join the discussion by commenting below…
