Max Aarons opens up on future amid Tottenham links
The 20-year-old Englishman is a product of the Canaries’ youth academy. Having played an integral role in their promotion to the Premier League in 2018/19, he emerged as one of the few bright spots for the club in 2019/20 even as they ended up getting relegated back to the Championship.
Having missed just two Premier League outings in the season gone by, Aarons managed to assist two goals as well. Over the past couple of months, the 20-year-old has been heavily linked with a switch away from Carrow Road, with Tottenham reportedly very intent on signing the right-back.
We have had problems at the right-back slot over the course of the campaign. Having allowed Kieran Trippier to leave last summer, the club was left with just Serge Aurier as the senior right-back. And while the Ivorian impressed going forward, he remains a major liability in defence.
So, bringing in a new right-back is something that Jose Mourinho & co. should look at this summer. Aarons, to that end, would be a good addition. And speaking about the speculations surrounding his future, the youngster said (h/t The Athletic):
“It’s kind of natural that, as a 20-year-old playing in the Premier League, there will be things out there in the press.”
However, he further went on to add that he is not thinking of leaving the club as he still has four years left on his current contract. Aarons also insisted that he is looking forward to getting back to pre-season with the Canaries. (h/t The Athletic)

Aarons, given his potential, would be a fine signing for us. However, it remains to be seen if the club do act on the interest in the talented Englishman.
