Report: Milan ‘retain an interest’ in €29m Spurs defender identified to fix problem area

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are still interested in signing Serge Aurier this summer, a report claims, with the full-back set to leave Spurs.

Right-back 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.

The Rossoneri have been linked with a number of different targets to try and fix this issue, with one of them being Aurier.

Now, footballlondon journalist Alastair Gold is reporting that the Ivorian does not have a long-term future with Spurs and strongly implies that he could be sold this summer. The report adds that Milan ‘retain an interest’ and could be an option for the ex-PSG star.

The same outlet claims 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.
