Wolves are looking at a possible move for Tottenham right-back Serge Aurier, The Sun journalist Alan Nixon has reported.
Nuno Espirito Santos side are on the hunt for a new right-back after selling Matt Doherty to Spurs earlier this season, a deal that looks as though it could force Aurier out of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
According to Nixon’s latest update, Wolves are looking at the possibility of a move for the Ivorian international, either through a swap deal and or purchase, as they continue to search for a replacement to Doherty.
However, Wolves are not the only side who could be set to make a move for Aurier this summer, with French champions PSG and Italian giants AC Milan also said to be taking an interest in the 27-year-old.
WOLVES. Keeping an eye on Serge Aurier. Linked with Milan and PSG, still at SPURS. Poss swap or buy to replace Doherty. Maitland-Niles thing still to be done.

Since joining Tottenham from PSG back in the summer of 2017, Aurier has made 83 appearances in all competitions for Spurs, scoring six goals.
There are currently two years remaining on Aurier’s current contract with Tottenham, securing his future in North London until the end of the 2021/22 season.
With Doherty gone, it is clear that Wolves need to add a right-back to their squad, and you feel they could do worse than Aurier.
The 27-year-old’s top-flight experience could certainly be useful for Nuno’s side, particularly given he may feel he has something to prove having seemingly been forced out of the picture at Spurs somewhat.
Indeed, having already done business with Spurs this summer for the sale of Doherty, you have to wonder whether that could help Wolves’ cause if they do decide to make a move for Aurier in the next few weeks, given those already established links could work in their favour here.
