Tottenham set to open talks with Norwich City ace Max Aarons
Tottenham Hotspur are set to hold talks with Norwich City full-back Max Aarons when the transfer market opens for business, according to a report from Football Insider (h/t Football.london)
Aarons has been a key member of the Norwich City outfit for the past couple of seasons. Having helped the club to promotion from the Championship, the 20-year-old has impressed in his debut campaign in the Premier League even though Norwich have found the going tough.
Aarons had made 27 appearances in the top flight, contributing with two assists before the season was suspended due to coronavirus.
Tottenham have been linked with a move for the England U-21 international for some time now and see the youngster as the perfect fit for our team.
As per the report, Tottenham had already made good progress in their pursuit of Aarons and have already laid the groundwork to complete his signing. However, the club had to put all recruitment operations on halt due to coronavirus.
But once normalcy is restored, the club are planning to ramp up the pursuit of Aarons and start negotiations with the Norwich City starlet over the possibility of a summer switch to our stadium.
Having allowed Kieran Trippier to leave the club last summer without bringing in a proper replacement, the club had been left with Serge Aurier as the only frontline option at right-back. Kyle Walker-Peters was then allowed to leave on loan in January, further depleting our resources.
Juan Foyth and Japhet Tanganga have been used as makeshift right-backs, but have yielded mixed results. Whereas Serge Aurier has been at his inconsistent best once again. Bringing in a new right-back should be a priority for Jose Mourinho and the hierarchy.

So, it is good to see that the club have already taken steps to address what has been a key problem area for us this season. However, we will need more players coming through the doors next season, but with finances likely to take a hit due to the coronavirus crisis, it will be interesting to see how the club goes about business in the transfer market.
