PSG looking to sell Serge Aurier
Throughout this summer, Serge Aurier has been linked with a move away from PSG.
It is well known that PSG want rid of Aurier, after a troublesome spell at the Parc des Princes.
As a player not part of Unai Emery’s side, or first team squad, PSG are keen to cash in on Aurier to recoup some of the money spent on Neymar.
Aurier has been heavily linked with both Manchester United and Chelsea over the summer transfer window.
However, it is difficult to know whether these links were ever real since the French press appear to be being used by Aurier’s camp.
Is Serge Aurier signing for Spurs?
Last week, Aurier reportedly agreed personal terms with Tottenham.
This is hugely hard to believe since whilst Aurier plays right back, a position Spurs might well strengthen, the defender is far from the profile of player Tottenham sign.
Mauricio Pochettino often talks of buying the right personalities and Aurier simply does not fit this bill.
The Ivory Coast defender cannot currently enter the UK after allegedly attacking a policeman in France.
Aurier also infamously took the mickey out of his then coach (Laurent Blanc) and star striker (Zlatan Ibrahimovic) on Periscope.
Aurier drops Spurs hint on Instagram
Two angles on Aurier to Spurs remain possible.
One is that Mauricio Pochettino believes he can reform Aurier and transform him into a team player and ultimately there is a high quality right back in there.
Or, Aurier’s camp (and perhaps PSG) are inventing the Tottenham interest so that they can sell the 24-year-old to someone… anyone…
On Saturday, Aurier has got Spurs fans talking by liking a picture of possible new Tottenham signings.
It features six players linked with Tottenham this summer: Juan Foyth, Keita Balde, Pape Cheikh Diop, Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez and Ross Barkley.
See the picture below, followed by the Aurier like.
Even with this hint, it is difficult to see Aurier at Spurs but with 12 days left of the summer transfer window never put anything past Daniel Levy…
