Fans of Tottenham Hotspur have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed a report that claims Spurs will consider selling Serge Aurier in the January transfer window.
According to a report by the Evening Standard, ‘serious offers’ for Aurier would ‘be considered’ by Tottenham in the upcoming transfer window, given that the defender has just 18 months left to run on his current contract in north London and, as yet, there being no sign of the 28-year-old agreeing a new deal.
So far this season, the £18 million-rated right-back has impressed over his eight Premier League appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side, making an average of 3.6 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 3.4 clearances per game, culminating in an average WhoScored match rating of 7.14 – ranking him as the club’s third-best performer in the top flight.
And, after Last Word On Spurs shared the report by the Standard on Twitter, fans of Tottenham did not appear to be best pleased with the idea of their club selling Aurier.
Do you think Spurs should sell Serge Aurier in January?
So, what exactly did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to the transfer news regarding Serge Aurier?
“Losing Aurier would be bad cos hes a great RB but more importantly he brings good atmosphere to the team…everyone’s good friends with him”
“This can’t be true given how he has performed this year. One mistake recently, but an excellent season so far.”
“No please don’t extend his contract instead”
All in all, it would appear that the vast majority of these Tottenham fans are strongly against the idea of their club selling Aurier in January, with some stating their belief that the right-back has been excellent so far this season, while others claimed that letting the 28-year-old leave would have a negative impact on the squad’s morale.
