Spurs fans on Twitter have been reacting to the reported news that Spurs are willing to listen to offers for Serge Aurier this summer and want to replace him with Norwich City right-back Max Aarons.
According to The Athletic (via Daily Hotspur), the north London club will listen to offers for the former PSG man in the summer transfer window and want to bring in Aarons as a potential replacement. The Ivory Coast international was linked with a move to Monaco earlier this week, and it seems as if the Lilywhites could be keen to cash in on the £14.4 million-rated man ahead of the new season.
Spurs have regularly been linked with a move for the Norwich City full-back, so it is no surprise to hear that they are keen to bring him in as Aurier’s potential replacement. Daniel Farke’s side look set to be relegated from the Premier League in the coming weeks, with the Canaries seven points from safety, so perhaps Spurs will be able to bring in £18 million-rated Aarons in on a cut-price deal this summer.
Who would you rather have at right-back?

Other Spurs fans would prefer to see Aarons brought in without losing Aurier.
Why don’t we just sign him without selling our only right back…

Aarons isnt even that good he should be coming in as backup for Aurier

The majority of Spurs fans seem happy with this potential piece of transfer business, despite Aurier having impressed in his performances in the Premier League this season, averaging a 7.13/10 rating, whilst Aarons has arguably struggled, averaging a 6.54 rating.
