Serge Aurier is now set to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer, with Wolves defender Matt Doherty’s transfer to north London about to be completed.

This is according to many reports in the wake of the impending £ 15million deal with the Ivorian international now seen as surplus to needs.

It is reported by the London Evening Standard that Aurier, who still has two years on his contract at Spurs, has expressed little to no interest in signing a new deal with the club. That makes this summer the most profitable time to take it forward, with players like AC Milan and Bayer Leverkusen reportedly excited.

However, despite several reports across the continent suggesting otherwise, Tottenham have yet to make an official offer for the player. This is according to the Daily Mail, who claim no tangible interest has arrived in the player, with Tottenham hoping to sell for a figure of around £ 22million.

Aurier became the undisputed starter at right-back under Jose Mourinho last season, but out of necessity rather than choice.

Spurs have mismanaged their right-back situation since last summer, when no direct replacement was appointed to replace Kieran Trippier after his move to Atletico Madrid. Mauricio Pochettino looked set to back Juan Foyth as a right-back, but the Argentine got injured and has been completely ignored by Mourinho since his return to form.

Aurier, for all his positive attributes, has proven to be a handicap in his defensive duties and it seems Tottenham has had enough.

Unfortunately, its inconsistent shape and price tag will make it a tough sell in the transfer market this summer.
