During both the summer and January transfer windows, Tottenham Hotspur were heavily linked with a move for Norwich City talent, Max Aarons.
Nothing ever came of the speculation as we failed to suitably replace the outgoing Kieran Trippier, but given the lull in the fixture list at this moment in time, 20-year-old Aarons continues to feature on the rumour mill, and Football.London journalist, Alasdair Gold, has explained in a recent Question & Answer session that he feels Spurs making a move for him at the end of this campaign is almost a no brainer given his performances in the top flight and the way he’s continued to impress and develop, despite the Canaries struggles this year.
“Aarons is a player that Spurs really like, he ticks a lot of the boxes; a homegrown player, Premier League experience, a young player. He literally is the perfect example of a Spurs transfer, so I would be stunned if they don’t go for him, even more so if Norwich get relegated.”
Should Aarons Be On Our Radar?
Yes, Perfect Signing For Us
No, Other Options Out There
For his age, he’s closing in on 100 career appearances and especially if Norwich do suffer the drop this season, the often reported transfer fee of £30million would certainly drop, and become even more cost effective for us.
Whether manager Jose Mourinho would see him as an automatic pick for the first team is open for debate, but if Kyle Walker-Peters does end up moving on, Serge Aurier definitely needs competition for the berth and Aarons does appear to tick plenty of boxes.
