SERGE AURIER

According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a £23.1 million deal to sign the PSG full-back and are awaiting clearance from the British Home Office, as the Ivorian has a pending appeal against a suspended sentence over an ongoing assault case.

Aurier was not allowed into Britain last year when PSG travelled to play Arsenal in the Champions League.

RATING: 9/10

SPORT360 VERDICT: Spurs have been in the market for a right-back ever since they sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City, and Aurier has been a target all summer. The club is certain his legal complications will be resolved and he will be given clearance to enter Britain.

JULIAN DRAXLER

The transfer merry-go-round that was set off by Neymar’s move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain could see Julian Daxler end up at Borussia Dortmund, The Mirror claims.

With Ousmane Dembele off to Barcelona, Dortmund have money to spend and could move for PSG’s Draxler as a replacement. The French club are said to have an asking price of £32 million.

RATING: 5/10

SPORT360 VERDICT: A move for Draxler would be a departure from Dortmund’s usual transfer strategy of buying young players for low transfer fees. That being said, Draxler is only 23, £32 million is hardly anything in this market, and Dortmund have £96.8 million to spend.

Draxler is also German, and like most German clubs Dortmund prefer having a talented core of German players. The only question is whether Dortmund genuinely believe they need to buy someone or whether placing their faith in Christian Pulisic, who had a stellar outing while Dembele was benched last week, is the way forward.
