Paris Saint-Germain are close to re-signing Tottenham defender Serge Aurier, according to Football Insider.
Aurier emerged as Jose Mourinho’s first-choice right-back last season ahead of Matt Doherty, but he lost his place towards the end of the campaign under Ryan Mason.
And now it seems another former Spurs manager, Mauricio Pochettino, wants a reunion with Aurier.
Football Insider claims PSG have agreed personal terms with Aurier, who left the French giants for Tottenham in 2017.
The report goes on to say that PSG are willing to meet Spurs’ demands in terms of a transfer fee, so a deal is believed to be close to completion.
Aurier will apparently sign a four-year contract with the club he made 81 appearances for before joining Tottenham.
Despite a few vintage errors of judgement, Aurier probably enjoyed his best season in a Spurs shirt last term.
That said, it is arguably the best thing for him and Tottenham to part ways, and the Londoners must now pursue a new right-back.
Doherty could play a bigger role next season but he needs competition.
