Norwich City star Max Aarons has once again been mentioned in the same breath with Manchester United, with Erik ten Hag looking for further reinforcements this summer.
The Canary Islands fullback has previously attracted transfer interest from Old Trafford, and now air sports have suggested the 22-year-old could be someone the club might look at again this summer.
From Melissa Reddy of Sky Sports NewsAaron could become ‘a potential solution’ as the club aims for the right-back position after a poor performance against Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday afternoon.
The club currently have Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot on their books, but as the latter’s performance at Old Trafford has been inconclusive and the former has been linked to a move, Erik ten Hag is looking for reinforcements.
Reddy, however, is hesitant, writing that it remains to be seen how their… [Man Utd] interest develops.
Max Aarons is a talented young player and someone who has been watched by clubs in the Premier League before.
Quiz: Can you name which club Norwich City signed these 25 English players with?
Everton was most recently linked with a move for the young full-back ahead of the season, but they are reported to face competition from German teams Wolfsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach.
Aarons has started both Norwich City championship games so far this season, scoring the equalizing goal at home to Wigan Athletic last weekend.
Without concrete claims about their interest, this seems more like a suggestion than anything else, but you have to wonder if a respected reporter would speculate in such a way if they don’t know what goes on behind the scenes.
Aarons is certainly a talented player and given their current options as a right-back, a move to fullback seems out of reach for Man Utd at the moment.
There are clearly plenty of clubs looking to get his signature this summer, and having been promoted from the championship with Norwich twice before, you could argue he deserves a shot at top-flight football elsewhere.
With two years left on his current contract, Norwich should certainly consider letting him go if a significant offer comes in, although much of this will likely depend on Aarons’ willingness to extend his contract at Carrow Road, or that he will just end it.
