“I really enjoyed my time with Spurs and would like to thank the club and the fans, but I think the time has come for me to move on to a new challenge.” On August 31, shortly before midnight, Serge Aurier (28) announced to the supporters the amicable termination of his last year of contract with Tottenham, somewhat to everyone’s surprise it must be said.
While Paris SG had very early sounded for a return (he evolved there between 2014 and 2017), the club of the capital had finally opted for Achraf Hakimi (22 years old). And if AC Milan, Betis, Inter or Arsenal were timidly announced in his footsteps during the summer, we imagined leaving for a round with Spurs, under the leadership of new coach Nuno Espirito Santo. It did not happen and the Ivorian international (70 caps) is now free as the air.
Everton thinks about it
However, the situation could change. According to information from Liverpool Echo and Daily Mail, Everton, amputated by the long injury of its holder at the post Seamus Coleman (32), could be interested in his services. There is currently nothing more concrete according to the two English sources but the idea has started to germinate among the Toffees who, freed from the weight of the salary of James Rodriguez (30 years old, gone to Al-Rayyan ), have some financial leeway.
Information that we are able to confirm to you, since we have learned that the residents of Goodison Park have indeed inquired about him in recent hours, his profile having even been approved by the Spanish manager Rafael Benitez. Serge Aurier, who will undoubtedly want to participate in the 2022 African Cup of Nations with the Elephants in Cameroon (January 9-February 6), has plenty of time to think about embracing the best project for the rest of his career. In Everton or elsewhere.
