Adrien Rabiot on Serge Aurier
Surely it’s in the bag, right?
Tottenham fans have been given a big sign that Serge Aurier is about to join Spurs.
That’s after PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot has taken to social media to announce it’s virtually a done deal.
A video is doing the rounds from Instagram Stories, in which Rabiot briefly speaks on camera about the PSG right-back’s move to Tottenham.
After Marquinhos showed off his dancing skills Rabiot popped up on screen to announce: “He’s going to Tottenham.”
It was clear Rabiot was talking about Aurier.
Reports earlier in the week indicated that Aurier had already completed a medical for the Tottenham switch. L’Equipe reports that a €25 million fee has been agreed with PSG

Tottenham v Burnley
On Sunday, Spurs return to Premier League action as Burnley arrive at Wembley.
Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for his side to bounce back from last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.
Incredibly, two-time Golden Boot winner Harry Kane is yet to register a Premier League goal in the calendar month of August.
Kane went tantalisingly close to opening his account against both Newcastle and Chelsea, with numerous opportunities.
Tottenham Hotspur team news vs Burnley
New signing Davinson Sanchez is available to make his debut after receiving his work permit and international clearance.
Kieran Trippier is a slight doubt to face his former club as he is carrying a knock.
This could see young Kyle Walker-Peters placed back in the starting eleven.
Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Danny Rose and Erik Lamela are all continuing to recover from injuries and remain unavailable.
Burnley will be without new signing Jonathan Walters who is recovering from an ankle injury.
Meanwhile, other new signings Chris Wood, as mentioned, is in line to make his Premier League debut for the Clarets.
Wood came on for Burnley’s fine 2-0 win at Blackburn in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
