AC Milan are reportedly lining up a move for Tottenham Hotspur right-back Serge Aurier, according to reports from England
As per the British publication, Football.London, Milan are preparing a £15m bid for Aurier to bolster competition on the right-back position, currently owned by Davide Calabria.
Stefano Pioli also has Andrea Conti at his disposal, but the former Atalanta man has struggled to replicate his old form since returning from a long-term injury.
Therefore, the Rossoneri believe an extra right-back would benefit their side that currently hover ten points adrift of fourth-placed Atalanta in the Serie A table.

Aurier, who has found himself on the fringes of the Tottenham squad at the beginning of the season, has now become irreplaceable at the right flank.
Recently also deployed as a right-winger due to his attacking capabilities, Aurier has already racked up six assists in all competitions for Spurs this term.
In addition to the 27-year-old Ivory Coast international, Jose Mourinho has only inexperienced Kyle Walker-Peters competing for the right-back position, which can complicate things for the Milanese outfit.
Another stumbling block Milan will have to overcome to land Aurier is Tottenham’s £25m valuation, with Daniel Levy looking to recoup the money he spent to land the player from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.
