Talks between Tottenham and AC Milan over defender Serge Aurier have stalled over valuation.

Spurs rejected an opening bid for the right-back from the Serie A side last week and the two clubs remain some way apart in their valuations. AC Milan could come back in for Aurier later in the window.

Bayer Leverkusen are also interested in the Ivory Coast international, who has two years left on his contract.

Aurier joined Tottenham from Paris Saint-Germain in August 2017 for £23m but was omitted from the starting line-up for the opening matches of last season under Mauricio Pochettino.

The 27-year-old flourished under Jose Mourinho when he took over but may still be allowed to leave for the right price.

Tottenham completed the signing of right-back Matt Doherty from Wolves on a four-year deal at the weekend.

The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international made 50 appearances for Wolves last season, scoring seven times in all competitions.
