Atletico Madrid tried to sign Serge Aurier from Tottenham Hotspur earlier this summer

RMC understand that Atletico Madrid made an approach for Tottenham Hotspur’s Ivorian international right-back Serge Aurier before settling on signing Santiago Arias from PSV in that position.

The French outlet claims that Tottenham had told Aurier that he was allowed to leave the club this summer, but the deal ultimately did not happen, despite the fact that the former PSG player was interested in a move.

Several meetings took place between Atletico Madrid & Spurs before a deal collapsed, with Borussia Dortmund also retaining recent interest in Aurier.
