Report: Milan preparing Aurier bid

Milan are reportedly weighing up an offer for Tottenham right-back Serge Aurier, according to a report in England.

The Rossoneri had been interested in the Ivorian last summer, but were priced out of a deal.

Now however, website football.london states that Milan are contemplating whether to make another bid for the 27-year-old in the January transfer window.

The report suggests that the Diavolo could submit a £15m offer for Aurier.

Regular right-backs Andrea Conti and Davide Calabria have struggled for confidence this season, with Calabria in particular facing the wrath of Milan fans for throwing a birthday party on the same day in which they got beat 5-0 by Atalanta.

Milan could hold a trump card in the shape of Polish striker Krzysztof Piatek.

Spurs are known admirers of the 24-year-old, and had been linked with a move for Piatek in the wake of Harry Kane’s injury.

Football.london insists that Piatek could be inserted into talks between the two clubs, in order to drive down Aurier’s price tag.

The Ivory Coast international joined the Premier League side from Paris Saint-Germain in August 2017 for £25m.
