Serge Aurier remains locked in talks over a move to AC Milan – and the right-back is now keen on making the switch, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
We relayed a transfer update from the reliable Fabrizio Romano on Sunday that Spurs had started negotiations with the Italian giants, who’ve identified Aurier as their number one right-back target – with one of Davide Calabria and Andrea Conti expected to leave the San Siro this summer, according to Sky Sports‘ report.
And now Aurier, who scored twice and provided eight assists in 42 appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side last term, is reportedly keen on making the move himself, despite recently stating on Instagram that the “best remains to come” in a message to fans.
Tottenham signed Aurier from PSG three years ago for £22.5m (according to Transfermarket) – and have now slapped a £20m price tag on his shoulders, although the 18-times Serie A champions are hoping to pay less than Spurs’ asking price.
Aurier departing would leave Mourinho with no right-backs, however, Spurs are unlikely to stop the 27-year-old from leaving – in a bid to upgrade on the defender.
