Ivorian right back, Serge Aurier is close to signing for Tottenham from Paris Saint-Germain after passing his medicals and granted work permit.
According to Sky Sports, both clubs agreed on a £23m transfer fee last week with the work permit being the only stumbling block.
Serge Aurier has won 309 tackles in Ligue 1 since 2012/13; Sébastien Corchia (332) is the only defender with more in that time.

The 24-year-old defender, who was also linked with a move to Manchester United and Chelsea, has also reportedly agreed personal terms with Tottenham.
Serge Aurier joined PSG from Toulouse in 2015 and was an integral part of Ivory Coast’s squad that won the 2015 African Cup of Nations.
