According to TutoSport, Tottenham have rejected an approach for Serge Aurier from AC Milan, a decision many supporters don’t understand.
The right-back has been a source of frequent frustration for Spurs this season, getting sent off needlessly against Southampton before a terrible performance against Bayern Munich in a 7-2 Champions League thumping.
As a result, the majority would likely be happy to see him depart in January, provided a more reliable option was brought in, which is why they are confused by reports alleging Spurs have turned down a transfer offer.
Some hold such derisory views of the Cote d’Ivoire international that they say the club should accept 50p for the defender, with one fan suggesting he’d pay the fare to take him away from North London.
Top 6 rival player you’d love Spurs to sign?
Aurier clearly has a lot of work to do to win over the fans, therefore, particularly if the club aims to keep him past the January window.
Here are some of the reactions from supporters to the latest transfer news.
Take him for 50p

why would we do that

Aurier should be sold in January if possible. He’s not good enough to play for Juventus, PSG, Ajax, Benfica et al. The top tier teams. He could be ok at a mid to bottom level EPL team if he wants to stay in England. Or sell him back to a Ligue 1 team in France.

This is definitely fake news Spurs can afford to take him for £1

I’ll pay his fare.

Well I’m glad Tuttosport have rejected the advances ? I just hope Spurs sell him in January and get a good player to replace him.

As a Spurs fan I’d say we should grant him his wish to leave…..
