Spurs targeting new right-back to replace France-bound Serge Aurier

Tottenham Hotspur are set for a busy deadline day and could be scrambling to sign a new right-back.

The deal for Real Betis star Giovani Lo Celso is set to go down to the wire and will dominate the headlines, but it might not be the only business for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

It’s just two years since Serge Aurier joined the club from PSG in the late stages of the 2017 summer window, but The Sun report that the Ivory Coast international is due to head back to France, with the French champions amongst a host of clubs interesting in taking him.

Juan Foyth and Kyle Walker-Peters are two potential options to step into that position after the departure of Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid leaves them somewhat light.

The report doesn’t specify any particular players that Tottenham would be looking to bring in at right-back in the event that Aurier leaves, but it might be one to keep an eye out for.
