Report: AC Milan consider bid for €29m-rated Spurs defender; striker could be used in deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are considering making a bid for Spurs defender Serge Aurier in the January transfer window, according to reports from England.

Right-back is one position where the Rossoneri have struggled for consistency so far this season, with the role having been alternated between Davide Calabria and Andrea Conti, neither managing to find their form on a weekly basis.

According to a report from, Milan are weighing up an offer for Ivory Coast captain Serge Aurier, who has been a regular under Jose Mourinho.

They add that Aurier informed Tottenham that he wanted to leave in the summer despite Kieran Trippier’s departure to Atletico Madrid, and Milan showed the most concrete interest.

Milan are apparently readying a £15m offer for Aurier (€17.5m) but ‘believe they could be priced out of a transfer in this window for Aurier’ as Spurs are looking to recoup as much of the £25m (€29m) fee they paid for him as they can

The report goes on to mention that Spurs’ interest in striker Krzysztof Piatek could be exploited as he is worth around £30m (€35m).
