Tottenham line up Max Aarons as Serge Aurier replacement

According to Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur could make a move for long-term transfer target Max Aarons in order to replace Serge Aurier in the summer.

Tottenham are set to dive into the transfer market for a new right-back in the upcoming transfer window after Aurier confirmed that he will be on his way out before the next season. The Ivory Coast international is set to bring an end to a four-year association with the club, during which he never really convinced fans that he was the right man to be the first-choice in his position.

With Aurier on his way out, Tottenham will be left with just Matt Doherty as the only natural right-back in the squad. Japhet Tanganga has done the job as a full-back under ex-boss Jose Mourinho as well as interim manager Ryan Mason towards the end of the 2020/21 season.

However, having an out-and-out right-back in the squad can make a great deal of difference. So, it would only be prudent for Spurs to bring in one, especially considering that Doherty’s signing has proven to quite the dud. To that end, Daniel Levy & co. could turn to Norwich City’s Max Aarons, who has been on the club’s radars for quite some time. (h/t Football.london)

Indeed, Aarons is someone that Tottenham have been linked with since last summer. The 21-year-old is coming on the back of another solid season for the Canaries, helping them return to the Premier League by winning the EFL Championship title. In 45 league games in 2020/21, Aarons produced a tally of two goals and five assists. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Aarons had made a solid impression in his debut season in the Premier League in 2019/20 as well. At 21, the youngster has shown a lot of promise and will only continue to get better. So, a move for him should be a no-brainer for Tottenham this summer, with Aurier on his way out of the club.
