Serge Aurier TEAMtalk

Tottenham defender Serge Aurier is a target for AC Milan, according to reports.

The French full-back wanted out at Spurs over the summer and the 26-year-old was heavily linked with a return to Paris, while Milan were also credited with interest.

Aurier admitted earlier this month his head was set on leaving the north London. He told Bal des Productions:“I’d simply decided to leave [this summer], which was normal for me. Many things were taken into consideration. In the end, I wasn’t able to leave.”

Only last week though he claimed he was fully committed to Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Asked if he wanted to leave, Aurier said: “Yes, but that was the situation before the transfer window closed, the transfer window is now closed, now I am calm and happy to stay.”

Now though French outlet soccerlink and Italian source Sport Mediaset claim Milan want Aurier to replace Andrea Conti at right-back.

Soccerlink suggest that that Milan are ‘advancing rapidly’ in talks for Aurier as his replacement and ‘could reach an agreement soon’.

 

 

The report goes on to state that Aurier is keen on a move to Milan to join up with Ivorian compatriot Franck Kessie.

Milan defender Conti’s future over the summer was far from assured with talk of a move, and Sempremilan say he “failed to impress” in the weekend’s defeat to Inter.

Spurs are understood to have placed a €25m summer price tag Aurier, who has started the last two Premier League games.
