Spurs are in talks to terminate Serge Aurier’s contract following the £25 million purchase of Emerson Royal.
Spurs have made it clear that Serge Aurier will not be part of their squad this season.
Spurs are allegedly in talks with Serge Aurier’s agent to cancel his contract with immediate effect. The athlete is hoping for a swift conclusion so that he may find a new club before the summer window closes.
The Ivorian’s contract at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has only one year left on it.
After Spurs completed the £25 million deadline day signing of Emerson Royal from Barcelona, Aurier’s future was always in doubt.
The 28-year-old was reportedly offered to Emerson in a part-exchange deal at first, despite Barca’s preference for a cash-only offer.
With teenager Japhet Tanganga favoured at right-back to begin the season, the writing was on the wall for Aurier’s future in north London.
He was never going to earn any meaningful game time as a third-stringer coming into the season, and he’s about to try his luck somewhere else.
According to RMC, both the player and the club are working on it, with plans to release him from his contract in the last year.
The plan is to find a quick solution, giving the former PSG player enough time to find a new team.
Someone with a full-back vacancy is bound to take a chance on him, given his 69 caps for the Ivorian national team and several years at the top level with PSG.
However, with misguided challenges and red cards being part of the package when it comes to the 28-year-old, a punt is precisely what it would be.
Despite the fact that Aurier’s four-year tenure with Spurs is coming to an end, the club can rest easy knowing that their defensive ranks have been rejuvenated with the majority of the new season ahead of them.
Emerson has four caps for Brazil and was regarded talented enough to spend two years with Barcelona, albeit in a strange co-ownership agreement with Real Betis.
Tanganga has also been impressive throughout Tottenham’s early season games, contributing to three consecutive clean sheets that have propelled Spurs to the top of the Premier League.
