Tottenham identify PSG star as Kyle Walker replacement

Aurier in for Walker?

Tottenham Hotspur could reportedly lodge a summer attempt for Paris Saint-Germain's Serge Aurier, should Kyle Walker end his association with the club.



The England international played second fiddle to Kieran Trippier during the backend of the league season, and this has sort of unsettled him ahead of the summer transfer window.

Spurs are currently holding out for a fee between £40m and £60m for their prized asset, and there is a sense that he could be leaving with Manchester City hot on the pursuit of his signature.

According to The Mirror, the Premier League runners-up are planning for the departure of Walker with an approach for Aurier.

The Ivory Coast international has previously attracted interest from the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United, and he could be eyeing a new challenge after having shared his playing time with Thomas Meunier for the best part of last season.

Aurier could face a similar situation at the Wembley next season, and this presents a doubt over the prospective move prior to the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old was denied a working visa during Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League encounter against Arsenal earlier last season after being found guilty of assaulting a police officer outside a nightclub in Paris.
