Real Madrid express interest in Tottenham fullback Serge Aurier

Real Madrid have expressed interest in Tottenham fullback Serge Aurier.

Foot Mercato says the Spanish champions are keen to reinforce the right-back position where they have Dani Carvajal currently out injured, and have asked about Aurier's situation.

At €12m, the Ivorian full-back would be within Madrid's budget but as of the moment, the Spanish club are just keen to see how the land lies although it would be an interesting option for them.

Aurier has spoken to Raphael Varane, his old team mate at Lens, to gain information about the club and life in the city - curiously, just as Varane's own future is up in the air.

The right-back is open to the possibility of playing at the Bernabéu and Madrid's coaching staff would be interested in having a defender like Aurier who is able to adapt to system of two or three centre-backs.
