Paris Saint-Germain may lose the services of Serge Aurier, with the Ivory Coast defender reportedly looking to leave the French giants.

The 24-year-old right-back has been a top performer at PSG since joining them in 2014, though a dip in playing time last term and previous controversies with former manager Laurent Blanc have somewhat soured the relationship between player and club.

The Elephants man is contracted to the Paris side until 2019, but according to France Football he is keen on leaving and making a fresh start elsewhere.

Aurier has been linked with a move to Manchester United and manger Jose Mourinho is said to be a fan of the player.

However, the Red Devils’ transfer priority this European summer is signing a striker to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, putting all other potential moves on the back burner.

This could open the door for Italian champions Juventus to bring Aurier to Turin. The ‘Old Lady’ recently parted ways with Brazilian Dani Alves and the Ivorian would represent a fine replacement for the wingback.

Juventus’ Serie A rivals Internazionale are also said to be keeping tabs on the player’s transfer status.
