Juve: Aurier to replace Alves?

Juventus are reportedly weighing up a bid for Paris Saint-Germain right-back Serge Aurier, who would replace Dani Alves.

According to Calciomercato.com, Juve are “seriously” thinking about Aurier, who made just 22 Ligue 1 appearances for PSG last season due to injury and the emergence of Thomas Meunier.

The website adds Tottenham Hotspur are also in the race for the Ivorian, but the Bianconeri have already enquired about his availability, with Alves seemingly set for the Premier League.

However, a stumbling block for Juve is his character, given he was arrested after an altercation with two police officers and directed homophobic slurs at former Coach Laurent Blanc last year.

Nonetheless, Calciomercato notes Aurier could leave Parc des Princes for a fee of €10-15m, making him an affordable option.
