Fulham amongst leading contenders to sign Serge Aurier

Many clubs have enquired about free agent Serge Aurier (29), but Fulham, Galatasaray, and Atletico Madrid are most serious about a move, according to Fabrice Hawkins. The former Tottenham defender is a free agent after less than a year at Villareal. 

Ivory Coast international right-back Aurier arrived at Villareal back in October and went on to make 18 La Liga appearances, as well as 5 appearances in their Champions League campaign, which ended at the hands of Liverpool in the semi-final. 

Hawkins reports that Aurier’s future will be decided next week. Whilst many clubs have expressed an interest in bringing the player in on a free, newly-promoted Fulham, Galatasaray and Atletico Madrid are most engaged in bringing about a deal and are set to rival each other for his signature. 

Ligue 1 side Montpellier were interested in the former Tottenham man, but have struggled to agree on a deal with the club unable to fulfill his wage requirements, according to Foot Mercato.
