Aurier and Tottenham Hotspur mutually agreed to a contract termination at the end of August, and the former Paris Saint-Germain defender has been without a club since. 
 
The LaLiga giants are reportedly weighing up a move for Aurier due to concerns over Dani Carvajal's injury issues, and it is believed they could offer the Ivorian a deal until the end of the 2021/22 campaign.

According to Transfermarkt, Carvajal has already missed four games due to a calf problem this season, but is expected to return to action for Real on 15 October. 

Aurier, a 2015 Africa Cup of Nations winner, has also been linked with Arsenal and Everton in recent weeks, but no formal discussions have been reported.
