Speaking in a Q&A for football.london, Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has made an encouraging transfer claim.
The Lowdown: Sell-to-buy…
It is set to be a strange summer at Tottenham, with the club needing to offload players before properly finalising player moves in this window.
Of all the names linked with a summer exit from Spurs, only Juan Foyth has managed to complete a permanent move away so far and help to bolster Tottenham’s transfer kitty.
The other players linked with departures, including potentially Harry Winks, Serge Aurier, Erik Lamela and Moussa Sissoko (football.london), are all still on Spurs’ books.
The Latest: Gold drops encouraging transfer claim…
Speaking in a football.london Q&A, Gold has now explained what Spurs will definitely do if they manage to sell a particular player.
Indeed, the journalist says that Tottenham will move for a new right-back if wantaway ace Aurier can secure a departure this summer.
“It’s quite simple with Aurier,” Gold says.
“He wants to go, Spurs would be happy for him to go, but they need a reasonable bid (not as high as the 20m euros reported in France last week).
“Tottenham will move for a new right-back if he does head out of the exit door.
“Tottenham like Aarons and they need some homegrown signings but it’s all on Paratici now.”
The Verdict: Encouraging…
Tottenham have long been linked with a new right-back, with reports of interest in Max Aarons dating as far back as last summer.
If the Lilywhites are going to initiate a major summer overhaul, supporters may be encouraged by this claim that Spurs will move to immediately replace Aurier if the Ivorian can seal his exit.
