Tottenham have identified Norwich City’s Max Aarons as their number one right-back target this summer, according to Football Insider.
The 20-year-old, who is a product on the Canaries academy, burst on the scene at the beginning of the 2018-2019 campaign when Daniel Farke’s men won promotion back to the Premier League – with Aarons winning a host of individual awards, including the EFL Young Player of the Year and was also named in the Championship Team of the Season.
Given Mauricio Pochettino’s history of bring through youth and signing young players, Aarons was unsurprisingly linked with a move to North London last summer, and despite the departure of the Argentine, the England Under-21 international’s name is continuing to be mentioned as a possible long-term right-back replacement.
With Kyle Walker-Peters, who is currently on loan at Southampton, expected to leave permanently at the end of the season, and Serge Aurier still struggling for consistency despite some eye-catching performances in an attacking sense this term, Mourinho remains in search of someone to replace Kieran Trippier, who left for Atletico Madrid back in July.
The report suggest that Tottenham will face competition from a host of other clubs for Aarons’ signature and it won’t be easy convincing him to move to North London – especially with the 20-year-old only recently signing fresh terms on a five-year deal with Norwich.
