CM: Milan reignite interest in defender as Spurs slash price to €10m – competition from PSG

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have reignited their interest in signing Spurs defender Serge Aurier as they look for experience, according to a report.

Calciomercato.com writes that the management are looking to complete the squad with targeted purchases that can guarantee quality depth, and that is why Aurier has once again become a target. He was targeted by Frederic Massara and Paolo Maldini last summer and the negotiations with Tottenham were well underway, but failure to sell Andrea Conti meant that the deal was never done.

That is why Diogo Dalot arrived in Italy with the formula of a dry loan, but he is destined to return to Manchester United at the end of the season. At the moment Aurier is merely a suggestion but it cannot be excluded that his name may become something more concrete in the coming weeks.

Milan remained in contact with Aurier’s agents who informed of Tottenham’s desire to sell once the window reopens, and Spurs have significantly lowered their demands to €10m. The fact his contract expires in 2022 has contributed to this, but the Rossoneri will have to fight against competition from PSG and Atletico Madrid as per the report.
