Tottenham Hotspur have a lack of options at right-back at the moment.
Although Serge Aurier is available for Tottenham, Spurs could be in a sticky situation if he picks up an injury. Both Japhet Tanganga, who has become known for his versatility, and Juan Foyth are currently out injured. Meanwhile, Kyle Walker-Peters will finish the rest of the season with Southampton.
According to Sky Sports, AS Monaco are interested in signing Spurs defender Aurier this summer, which could be good news for Jose Mourinho.
Plagued by problems on and off the pitch, it is safe to say this season couldn’t get much worse for Spurs, and Aurier has hardly done himself any favours so far.
Indeed, the Ivorian angered the club’s hierarchy after breaking the government guidelines during the nationwide lockdown. This isn’t the first time he has been at the centre of attention for all of the wrong reasons.
For whatever reason, Aurier seems to find himself embroiled in controversy at every opportunity. His career has been dotted with high-profile incidents right from the start.
In fact, his lawyers had to plead with the Home Office to let him into the country before Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League tie with Arsenal in November 2016 after he was given a suspended two-month sentence in France for assaulting a police officer.
To make matters worse, his performances on the pitch have left a lot to be desired. At times he has been a total liability this season, making a string of mistakes and errors, and Mourinho has turned to scouting Norwich City’s Max Aarons as a result.
Although Aurier is the club’s first-choice right-back, this has led to an imbalance between the defence and attack on the flank. While the 27-year-old has earned a higher WhoScored rating than his Norwich counterpart, his conduct has come under increasing scrutiny.

Mourinho has never coped well with disruptive influences in the dressing room, as he binned Bastian Schweinsteiger during his time in charge of Manchester United. Therefore, Monaco’s interest in the £14m-valued defender presents the Spurs manager with the perfect opportunity to get rid of the controversial figure.
As it stands, Mourinho could sell Aurier to reinvest the funds in Aarons instead.
