The England international has struggled for form this season after starring for the Three Lions at the 2018 World Cup.

Aurier, who joined Spurs in a £23million deal from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, is surplus to requirements.

And, according to The Sun, manager Mauricio Pochettino is keen on signing Crystal Palace star Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Norwich’s Max Aarons as replacements.

Wan-Bissaka, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United, has been Palace’s first-choice right-back since breaking into the team last season, while Aarons is impressing for Premier League hopefuls Norwich.

Earlier this week, Trippier admitted his form of late could have been better – he scored a calamitous own goal in Tottenham’s 2-0 defeat at Chelsea last month.

The 28-year-old, whose season has been disrupted by injury, told talkSPORT: “You need to play as many games as you can for your club and perform well as the manager’s always watching. It’s very good competition.

“I could have done a lot better this season. I’ve picked up some injuries and there are games where I’ve looked back and thought ‘I could have done this better’ but it’s all about learning.

“I admit I could have done better but I’m here now and I’ve got to try and impress so I can start for England.”
