Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is eager to resolve the future of Serge Aurier by offering the defender a new contract, according to Football Insider.

Aurier was expected to lose his place in the team this season after Spurs signed Matt Doherty from Wolves.

However, Aurier improved as a result of the added competition for the right-back spot, and now it looks like he could be rewarded with a contract extension.

Football Insider claims Levy wants to sort out the Ivory Coast international’s future because he has now entered the final 18 months of his current deal.

Tottenham will offer Aurier a new contract, though it apparently remains unclear whether Aurier is keen to extend his stay in north London.

It could depend on whether he remains Jose Mourinho’s first-choice right-back ahead of Doherty in the coming weeks and months.

Rotation will be key across the hectic festive schedule and when the Europa League restarts in the new year, so we may get a better indication as to whether Aurier will sign a new deal in 2021.

For now, Spurs fans will be hoping the 27-year-old can keep up his current form in crucial games against Liverpool and Leicester City this week.
