Monaco are interested in signing Tottenham defender Serge Aurier this summer.

Monaco's recruitment is now overseen by Paul Mitchell - once of Spurs himself - after he joined from RB Leipzig last month, and he is said to be keen on bringing in the Ivory Coast international.

Aurier almost left Spurs last summer, and was overlooked for the opening games of the season under previous boss Mauricio Pochettino, but he has found a new lease of life under Jose Mourinho.

He has been first-choice this season, with the departure of Kieran Trippier last summer leaving him as the only established option in the position.
