Monaco add Serge Aurier to summer wishlist

    Monaco are reportedly interested in bringing in the Tottenham Hotspur right-back Serge Aurier, according to reports in England

    Although he seemed to be on the verge of leaving Tottenham last season, Aurier has stayed in London and has moved on to become an indispensable first-team member.

    Indeed, after being overlooked by Mauricio Pochettino at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign, the 27-year-old has been thrown a lifeline by Jose Mourinho.

    Aurier has racked up 35 appearances for Spurs in all competitions this term, notching two goals and chipping in with eight assists, as he continues to take advantage of a lack of competition at the right-back position.

    Tottenham have failed to land a replacement after shipping off Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid last summer, leaving the Ivory Coast international as the only reliable option.

    Now, as reported by Sky Sports, Monaco have set their sights on the ex-Paris Saint-Germain misfit, as former Spurs chief Paul Mitchell, now in charge of the Ligue 1 outfit, hope to take Aurier south of the board.

    Benjamin Henrichs and Ruben Aguilar may both leave the Stade Louis II after enduring an underwhelming season, respectively, which would pave the way for the versatile wide defender.

    Monaco failed to seal European football for the next season after Ligue 1 was stripped due to the coronavirus pandemic, leaving the club from the principality hang in a disappointing ninth place.
