Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly looking into the option of re-signing Serge Aurier of Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season.
Serge Aurier may well and truly be out of Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season. The 28-year-old has fallen down the pecking order due to his run of inconsistent performances. At the start of the season, Aurier struggled under former coach Jose Mourinho- who preferred playing the likes of Matt Doherty and Japhet Tanganga on a few occasions over the Ivorian right-back mainly due to his uncontrollable aggression while defending.
Under the interim head coach, Ryan Mason, the same issues prevail for Serge Aurier. With just a season left on his contract, the 27-year-old has not yet inked fresh terms which means that Spurs could be forced into cashing in on the defender this summer. Le Parisien reports that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in re-signing the right-back at the end of the season.
Aurier is open to returning to his former club which is quite surprising given why PSG parted ways with him in 2017. The Ivorian right-back had insulted Angel Di Maria and then-manager- Laurent Blanc, which resulted in him being dropped to the reserve team for the rest of the season.
He is expected to come in as a replacement for Alessandro Florenzi who is on a season long-loan from AS Roma. The 30-year-old Italian right-back has been excellent for PSG this season and played a pivotal role in the Champions League as well. However, with Jose Mourinho being appointed as the head coach for Roma next season, it is likely that Mourinho would count on Florenzi’s services next season.
Meanwhile, for Spurs, Aurier’s departure would not be felt too heavily. The Ivorian was an important player under Mauricio Pochettino, however, since then, his performances have been on the declining end. The Lilywhites are reportedly interested in Max Aarons of Norwich City who is considered as one of England’s upcoming talents. Overall, a move to Paris Saint-Germain seems to be a win-win situation for all three parties involved.
