Sky: Spurs and Milan reach impasse in talks over defender as Bayer Leverkusen join race

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Spurs have stopped talking over defender Serge Aurier for the time being due to differences over his valuation, a report claims.

Head coach Stefano Pioli found little consistency on the right side of his defence as both Davide Calabria and Andrea Conti did not find form week-in week-out, plus both were affected by suspensions and injuries.

It has therefore been speculation that Milan will look to reinforce their back line after bolstering the midfield with the additions of Sandro Tonali and Brahim Diaz plus hopefully that of Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Serge Aurier is one of the players who has been repeatedly linked, but according to Sky Sports talks have stopped for the time being due to differences between Spurs and Milan on the valuation of the player.

Milan could come back in for Aurier later in the window, while Bayer Leverkusen are also interested in the defender.

This comes after La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reported this morning that PSV Eindhoven captain Denzel Dumfries is a target.
