According to Daily Express journalist Ryan Taylor, Tottenham Hotspur wantaway defender Serge Aurier has been pushed closer to the exit door following Japhet Tanganga’s brilliant performance against Man City.
The Lowdown: Aurier wants out?
The Ivory Coast international, after signing from Paris-Saint Germain as a direct replacement for Kyle Walker in 2017, looks to be nearing the end of his four-year stay at Tottenham.
The right-back also has just one year left on his current contract which expires in 2022, and with no extension in sight, he will at the very least leave on a free next summer.
The Latest: Aurier pushed closer to exit door…
As per the Daily Express, Aurier has now been pushed even closer to the exit door at Spurs following the brilliant performance of Tanganga at home to Premier League champions City on the opening weekend.
Indeed, backing other reports in the media (Football Insider), Tottenham are now set to keep hold of the youngster after he cemented his place in the Spurs squad for this season.
This has apparently pushed Aurier further out with manager Nuno Espirito Santo even leaving him out of the squad to face Pacos de Ferreira in the UEFA Conference League on Thursday evening.
The Verdict: Time to go…
Spurs supporters may be frustrated that the 66-cap ace hasn’t yet been sold to bolster Fabio Paratici’s summer transfer kitty.
The deadline is August 31 and Tottenham have, so far, struggled to find a suitor for Aurier – with Sky Sports even claiming that exit talks recently broke down due to his involvement with the Ivory Coast.
In this sell-to-buy market, offloading the 28-year-old could prove to crucial to any last minute transfer plans for Spurs.
