Tuttosport: Spurs, Milan €8m apart on valuation of full-back; Barcelona man the alternative

By Oliver Fisher -

Spurs have set their asking price for defender Serge Aurier, a report claims, and it is higher than what Milan are willing to pay.

The Rossoneri’s desire to sign a new right-back has been picked up on by a number of different outlets, with Andrea Conti and Davide Calabria having struggled for consistency all season.

A number of outlets have reported that Aurier is a target of the Milan management to reinforce the right side of the defence, with the general consensus being that talks are underway.

According to Tuttosport on Tuesday (via MilanNews), there are several names that are linked with Milan and among these there is above all that of Aurier, a player who was proposed to the Rossoneri by his agents.

The Ivorian – whose contract expires in June 2022 – is interested in the move, but it will not be easy to find an agreement with the Premier League side.

That is because Spurs have set the price of Aurier at €23million, but the Milan management do not want to invest more than €15-16m for his services, around the amount that PSV want for Denzel Dumfries (€18m) who is an alternative target.

The Rossoneri are not giving up on Emerson Royal either, for whom Barcelona continue to demand €30m.
