CM: Deal in motion as Mourinho is happy to sell Spurs defender to Milan; player wants move

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in the hunt for a right-back this summer, a report claims, and they have fallen upon one player in particular.

According to Calciomercato.com, one of Andrea Conti or (more likely) Davide Calabria will leave the Rossoneri this summer after a disappointing season full of suspensions, injuries and general poor form.

As a result, Milan are back on the trail of Serge Aurier, an Ivorian international who is under contract until June 2022 with Tottenham.

Three years ago the North London club invested €25million to buy him from Paris Saint-Germain, but now manager Jose Mourinho does not oppose his sale, though he wants at least €20m.

That is a figure considered excessive by Milan, who are trying to leverage the desire of the player to make the move in order to bring the asking price down.

Aurier was a team-mate of Zlatan Ibrahimovic for two seasons at PSG. The alternative is PSV Eindhoven captain Denzel Dumfries, represented by Mino Raiola.
