AS: Real Betis could be Serge Aurier’s Tottenham escape hatch

Y’all, I have no idea.

As things stand right now, Tottenham are soon to have four right backs on their books: Emerson Royal, Japhet Tanganga, Serge Aurier, and Matt Doherty (assuming the Emerson transfer goes through, which looks likely). That’s a lot of right backs! Something has to give, right?

Spurs have reportedly tried all summer to get someone to take Serge Aurier off their hands for them, but it’s been difficult. However, according to one source in Spain, Real Betis could serve as Aurier’s “rebound.” AS is reporting Betis is looking at offering Aurier a way out of the club before the close of the window.

A transfer fee amount? Pfft, this doesn’t give that much detail. Though honestly considering there appears to be a mutual desire to get Serge off the books as soon as possible, something stupidly low would likely be acceptable to both parties.

Having four right backs isn’t something that Spurs is probably too keen on as it’s likely they’d have to leave at least one of them off of the Spurs roster for both Premier League and Europa Conference League competition, so I’m choosing to believe this rumor is accurate. Strap Aurier to a rocket and fire him to Spain? Sounds good by me! Let’s see if it happens.
