Tottenham right-back Serge Aurier has dropped a very strong hint that he wants a transfer away from the club.
The Ivory Coast international has not always been the most reliable performer for Spurs, but he’s a fine player on his day and now is not an ideal time for the north Londoners to be losing first-team players.
Still, it seems they could be made to sweat over Aurier’s future after he spoke to L’Equipe about being at the end of a cycle and being unlikely to commit to a new contract with Tottenham.
Spurs fans may be disappointed by this, but many will also surely feel that Aurier is quite easily replaceable in the transfer market.
The 28-year-old has been with Spurs since joining from Paris Saint-Germain back in the 2017/18 season, and he’s gone on to make over 100 appearances for the club.
It remains to be seen where Aurier might end up if he does move on this summer.
Serge Aurier making it very clear in his latest L'Equipe interview that he wants to leave Tottenham, has come to the 'end of a cycle' and it's time to look elsewhere, and he does not intend to sign any new contract the club might offer.
