PSG President wants Tottenham Hotspur’s Serge Aurier and is personally involved in talks

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi wants to sign Tottenham Hotspur right-back Serge Aurier this summer, according to FootMercato.

The Ivory Coast international left the Parc des Princes for Spurs in 2017 and has established himself as a key player for the club, featuring in 110 games.

However, Aurier has just a year left on his current deal and is said to be available for around €12 million.

PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino is also keen on having the 28-year-old back at the club, and discussions are ongoing between them and Tottenham.

The Ligue 1 giants are ready to offer the defender a four-year contract and a salary of around €7m per season.

Aurier has always been open to returning to Paris, and he remains as determined as before.

He has also been linked with a move to Real Madrid, but the intervention of the PSG president means a move to France is more realistic.

Al-Khelaifi has never hidden his admiration for Aurier, and both men have remained in constant contact since he joined Spurs.

A reunion has often been mooted by both parties, and recent talks could make that happen this summer.

While he is one of the best right-backs in the Premier League on his day, the Ivorian is not a consistent top performer, and the squad need an upgrade next season.

Tottenham require a major squad overhaul this summer, and selling Aurier on the cheap instead of losing him for nothing next summer makes sense.
