Following on from Tottenham Hotspur’s devastating defeat on Thursday evening, fresh reports have emerged about the right-back position at the club – and much of the fanbase have flocked to the news.

The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare has revealed that the club are open to the idea of selling Serge Aurier this summer and intend to replace him with Norwich City’s Max Aarons, who is thought to have been on the radar of the Spurs hierarchy for quite some time.

Would you like to see Max Aarons at Spurs this summer?



No thanks!

No thanks!

He said:

“Tottenham will listen to offers for Serge Aurier at the end of the season and hope to replace him with Norwich’s Max Aarons, though Mourinho is understood to have reservations that he is too small. But even if a deal for Aarons is possible, he will not be a panacea for a defence that has been shaky for coming up to two years now.”

The 20-year-old England youth international has done pretty well for his maiden campaign in the top-flight. In 30 appearances, he is averaging 1.8 clearances, 1.4 tackles and 1.3 dribbles per game, via WhoScored, and is arguably one of the Canaries’ standout performers despite their seemingly likely relegation to the Championship.

Even though this could bode well for Spurs’ chances of landing him, it appears as if some in north London don’t want to see him arrive at the club.

One fan compared him to Kyle Naughton whilst others had their doubts over his potential for a club of our stature.

Here’s how they reacted on social media…
