Monaco is “interested in bringing Tottenham defender Serge Aurier to France this summer” while Jose Mourinho faces a fight to keep the defender
- Serge Aurier has made 35 appearances in all competitions for the Spurs this season
- The 27-year-old would have attracted the attention of the Ligue 1 Monaco team
- Aurier played in France with PSG but is now the first choice under Jose Mourinho
Monaco is preparing to move Tottenham defender Serge Aurier this summer, according to Sky Sports.
The 27-year-old, who nearly left Spurs last year, is Jose Mourinho’s first choice and has made 35 appearances in all competitions this season.
However, Aurier has now become a target for the French side of Monaco, which has former Tottenham recruiting chief Paul Mitchell in charge of player signing.
Monaco would be interested in moving Tottenham defender Serge Aurier
Kieran Trippier’s departure for Atletico Madrid last summer left the ex-PSG star as one of the team’s two right-backs with Kyle Walker-Peters.
But after the academy product was loaned to Southampton in January, Aurier played an even greater role in driving the Spurs to the top four.
Monaco, which finished ninth in the canceled Ligue 1 season, is looking for a new right-back with the future of Djibril Sidibe in the air.

The Frenchman spent the season on loan to Everton and could leave for around £ 12 million this summer, with AC Milan among the club’s enthusiasts.
Aurier, meanwhile, scored twice and provided eight assists for Tottenham this quarter after arriving from PSG for £ 23 million in the summer of 2017.
Mourinho is unlikely to want to lose the defender as he faces a difficult transfer window, with the Spurs limiting spending amid the coronavirus pandemic.
