Tottenham Hotspur: Serge Aurier’s return to Paris-Saint Germain ‘almost done’

Tottenham Hotspur: Serge Aurier’s return to Paris-Saint Germain ‘almost done’ - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to a report by Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur and chairman Daniel Levy are now on the verge of selling defender Serge Aurier, with his return to Paris-Saint Germain ‘almost done’.

The Lowdown: Aurier linked with Spurs exit

After a brilliant start to the 2020/21 season under former manager Jose Mourinho, with a particular highlight being his performance during the 6-1 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford, the 28-year-old is now one of the candidates to be sold this summer.

Indeed, as Tottenham need to adopt a sell-to-buy policy for transfer dealings, Aurier has become one of the Lilywhites players heavily linked with an exit. The Ivorian has seen his form dip since the turn of the year and, most recently, Ligue 1 giants PSG have been eyeing a move for him according to reports (Foot Mercato).

The Latest: Exit now ‘almost done’

Aurier is now at the centre of a major exit claim, with Football Insider bringing a development on his future.

They believe that Tottenham and Levy have accepted a bid from PSG for the 28-year-old and a return to the French capital is ‘almost done‘ nearly four years after Spurs snapped him up from the Parc des Princes.

Rather than let him go for nothing at the end of next season, with his contract expiring in 2022, Spurs wish to offload Aurier this summer and have duly accepted PSG’s offer. Indeed, it appears that he is now on the verge of leaving north London.

The Verdict: Correct call by Levy

Despite earning praise for his form earlier this season, Aurier has arguably dipped since the turn of the year and has often failed to eradicate the rash tackling and lack of composure from his game.

Many Spurs supporters have been critical of the 66-cap international for a while now, and some of them could be pleased with this development as they hope for a rebuild at N17.

Tottenham want to sign a ‘leader’ at the back this summer (Alasdair Gold), as well as a new striker according to Sky Sports, but they will first need to bolster the transfer kitty by offloading surplus-to-requirements players.

Aurier arguably falls into this category, and while Football Insider don’t mention the alleged fee accepted, many supporters must be hoping it is substantial enough to warrant his departure.
