Serge Aurier is set to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer as they aim to balance the books from Neymar's world record transfer.
The right-back is an obvious choice to oust from the Parc des Princes, not least because he has fallen behind Thomas Meunier in the pecking order.
The Ivorian's controversial behaviour has also seen his stock decline considerably in Ligue 1.

In February of last year, he was accused of making homophobic comments about then-manager Laurent Blanc on Periscope, and he is currently in the process of appealing a conviction for assaulting a police officer.
With the latter charge meaning he is banned from entering the UK, it makes the interest of Manchester United, Tottenham, and Chelsea - as per the Mirror - a little complex.

From a footballing point of view, it's easy to see why the Premier League trio are keen on the 24-year-old.
With Meunier having taken his place at full-back since the arrival of Unai Emery, he has been forced to show his versatility, playing across different positions in their back four. That would make him a huge asset.
There have been countless reports in the French press about who he is going to sign for. It may well be that his representatives have been peddling those stories to put the price up or drum up interest.
Aurier drops a big hint
However, Aurier himself has now dropped a hint on social media about his preferred destination.
One Spurs fan has taken the time to make a picture of all the players they are being linked with in a Lilywhite shirt, including Ross Barkley, Juan Foyth, Keita Baldé Diao, and crucially, Aurier.
Aurier, known as 'thecrazychild93' on Instagram, liked the photo, getting Tottenham fans very excited that he could become their second summer signing. Take a look:
Mauricio Pochettino has, at long last, entered the market with the acquisition of centre-back Davinson Sanchez from Ajax.
Aurier may have been simply admiring the fan's artwork, yet he must know his every move is going to be watched until his future is sorted one way or another.
If there's one manager who could take a difficult character and turn him into a more polished professional, it's Pochettino, though he has been known to discard troublesome players from his squad in the past.
Spurs are in the hunt for a right-back following Kyle Walker's departure for Manchester City.
As it stands, Kieran Trippier will be first choice this season with youngster Kyle Walker-Peters as a deputy, but it would be no surprise if Tottenham brought in a more experienced defender.
Should Tottenham sign Serge Aurier? Have your say in the comments.
