According to multiple reports three Premier League clubs are circling for Norwich City’s teenage right back Max Aarons.

The 19-year-old has started all but two of Norwich’s games this season and he’s performed very well in his first season in the top-flight.

A report from our partners Sky Sports in the UK states that Aarons is wanted by Tottenham, West Ham, Arsenal and Everton, with the Canaries said to want close to $40 million for the England U21 international.

Per the report Spurs are keen to sign Aarons as Jose Mourinho isn’t happy at all with his defensive options as the north London club continue to leak goals at an alarming rate.

Aarons moved to Norwich from Luton Town as a youngster and he was named in the Championship team of the season in 2018-19 and the Young Player of the Season as he excelled in their promotion campaign.

He has found it tough going at times in the PL this season but his battle against Wilfried Zaha on New Year’s Day proved he has what it takes to hang in there with the best of the best.

His combination of speed, power, trickery and poise on the ball mean he is well suited to an attacking role from right back, while the biggest area for improvement in his game is his defensive duties.

That will come with age and it seems like Aarons will certainly be playing in the Premier League next season even if Norwich City are relegated. The Canaries currently sit bottom of the Premier League table and are seven points from safety with 17 games to go.

Aarons, like Emiliano Buendia, Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell, is a man in demand and with the potential he has and the form he’s shown this season he will surely be around in the PL for years to come.
