Serge Aurier has an uncertain future at Tottenham after falling down the pecking order under Mauricio Pochettino, with Sky Sports revealing that Spurs will listen to offers for the right-back.

Aurier might be short of suitors this summer, however, as the Lilywhites will want to recoup much of the £23m that was spent in 2017. The 26-year-old’s £3.64m-a-year contract demands might be a stumbling block too.

The Ivorian international has made 41 appearances in all competitions since joining the club two years, but Aurier finds himself on the periphery and has spent the majority of 2018/19 as an unused substitute or sidelined with injury.

He racked up less than 600 minutes of Premier League football last season and made his last outing in the top-flight against Burnley on February 23. Aurier has hardly put himself in the shop window this summer, so it’s hard to see a club playing £23m for his signature.

In March, it was being reported that Spurs may even consider selling him for half the price. Along with Monaco, Inter are a side who have been linked with a move for Aurier, but  they’d be making the defender their fourth-highest earner at the club due to his wages.

Aurier might be a hard play to ship as a result.
