Bayern Munich eyeing move for Norwich City’s Max Aarons
Having come through the youth ranks at Norwich City, Aarons enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in 2018/19, playing a key role in the Canaries’ promotion-winning campaign. He was named in the EFL Championship Team of the Year for the season.
Norwich did not enjoy a lot of success upon returning to the top-flight, as they ended up finishing at the bottom of the table and getting relegated. However, Aarons was one of the few positives for the club in a poor campaign. The 20-year-old featured in 36 league matches, contributing with two assists in the process.
This has led to interest from Tottenham Hotspur, with the club being linked with a move for the Englishman for quite some time now.
The right-back slot had been a problem for us this term. Kieran Trippier’s departure left a gaping hole at the back. Serge Aurier has performed well in the attacking sense, but remains a major liability at the back. And with Kyle Walker-Peters seemingly not having a future at the club, a new right-back is a must this summer.
Aarons, to that end, would have been a decent addition to the ranks. However, Bayern Munich have now entered the fray to sign the England youth international.

Given the chance of winning trophies is more likely with Bayern, coupled with the lure of Champions League football, they do hold the upper-hand in the race to sign Aarons. It now remains to be seen what the youngster decides.
