CM: Milan keen on move as Spurs decide to axe €29m man who violated lockdown terms

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are interested in a summer move for Tottenham full-back Serge Aurier, according to a report.

The right side of defence has been a problem position for Milan all season with neither of Andrea Conti or Davide Calabria having been able to nail down a spot in the starting XI due to a combination of poor form, injuries and suspensions.

Milan have been linked with a move for a number of targets including Mehmet Zeki Celik and Denzel Dumfries, but Aurier is one player who the club have been persistently credited with interest in.

Footballlondon claimed in January that Milan were readying a £15m offer for Aurier (€17.5m) but that Spurs are looking to recoup as much of the £25m (€29m) fee they paid for him as they can, while the same outlet reported earlier this month that Milan still want the Ivorian.

According to the latest Calciomercato.com today, Milan followed the 27-year-old last summer but never made a bid due to his high market value and salary, but Spurs have now changed their position.

The outlet claims that Aurier has violated the terms of the lockdown in England, while his attitude and behavioral problems have convinced Tottenham that now is the right time to sell.
