Serge Aurier sized up as Dani Alves replacement for Juventus


Serge Aurier could be on his way to Juventus after reports that the Ivorian’s representatives flew to Turin to discuss a transfer away from Paris Saint-Germain.

Serge Aurier has 39 caps for Ivory Coast, who he has represented at two African Cup of Nations, winning the tournament in 2015, and at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, where his nation narrowly missed out on a knockout round berth following a late 2-1 loss to Greece in the group stage

The Italian champions are in need of a full-back since releasing Dani Alves over the summer, and Aurier is one of two key targets sized up for the position next season.

Real Madrid’s Danilo is the other, but Juventus are hesitant to meet the European Champions €35 million valuation of the player.

While Serge Aurier is a solid option, and perhaps the better of the two players in question, his off-field antics have often left much to be desired.

The Ivorian was frozen out by PSG in 2016 when he published a vitriolic video on social media, targeting his teammates and then-manager Laurent Blanc.

Aurier has since apologised and been welcomed back into the fold at PSG, playing 22 games in Ligue 1 last season.
