Spurs have picked up one win, one draw and one defeat in their three opening Premier League games, and Mauricio Pochettino is looking for some last minute additions to his squad for the summer transfer window slams shut. Here is who could sign for Spurs in the next couple of days.
1) Serge Aurier
Ever since Kyle Walker left for Pep Guardolia’s Manchester City, Spurs have been on the lookout for a replacement right-back.
With Kyle Walker-Peters too young to be given such responsibility (his performance against Newcastle may counter-argue this) and Kieran Trippier’s performance against Burnley nothing short of disastrous, Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to get a new right-back through the door.
The deal for PSG’s Serge Aurier appears to be very close. According to Sky Sources, a £23m bid for Aurier has been accepted and everything seems to be in place for the deal to be completed except the player is yet to receive a UK work visa.
The London Evening Standard report that Aurier’s chances of getting a work permit have received a knock with the revlation that the player assaulted a police officer last year. Spurs were confident of hearing a decision today (Tuesday), but a decision might be delayed. Either way, the clock is ticking to get a new right-back in and Aurier looks to most likely player to join Spurs before the window closes on Thursday.
