Tottenham are hopeful of signing PSG defender Serge Aurier, according to The London Evening Standard.
Yesterday we relayed reports from France suggesting Aurier’s move depended on the verdict of an appeal concerning a prison sentence for violence against a French police officer.
The Standard claims the result of that appeal is still unknown, but Spurs are “hopeful of reaching an agreement” to sign the 24-year-old right-back.
The report suggests the Ivory Coast international will sign a five-year deal and will cost Tottenham £23 million.
Throughout his career, Aurier’s behaviour has been contentious at best, leading many fans to question why the club is pursuing him at all.
