Everton: Fabrizio Romano provides Max Aarons latest

Everton: Fabrizio Romano provides Max Aarons latest - Everton News

Max Aarons is ‘not close to Everton’, according to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The lowdown

The Times reported last month that Aarons has been identified by Everton as a long-term option at right-back, with the youngster valued at £18m by Transfermarkt.

The 21-year-old made 45 appearances for Norwich City this season as they secured immediate promotion back to the Premier League.

Aarons averaged 0.7 tackles, 0.9 interceptions and 1.8 clearances per game over the course of the campaign (WhoScored). He also recorded 1.4 key passes, 2.3 accurate long balls and 1.4 dribbles per match.

He was called up for the group stages of the European Under-21 Championship in March and started two of England’s three matches in Slovenia. Aidy Boothroyd, the Young Lions’ manager for that tournament, hailed him as ‘outstanding’ and described him as a ‘really big talent’ who’s ‘nowhere near finished in his development’.

The latest

Romano dashed any hopes that Everton were close to signing Aarons, also noting that ‘other clubs are joining the race’ for the Norwich starlet.

Two European heavyweights in the form of Manchester United and FC Barcelona have both been linked with the London-born defender.

The verdict

Everton fans shouldn’t fret at this stage, as their club possesses a key advantage in the race for Aarons.

At Manchester United, he’d surely be playing second fiddle to Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has been one of the Red Devils’ most impressive performers this term, while it was only last summer that Barcelona recruited another promising young right-back in the form of Sergino Dest.

On the other hand, Toffees veteran Seamus Coleman will turn 33 this year, and so Aarons could be presented with a path into the first team if Carlo Ancelotti decides to start gradually phasing out the Irishman.

In other news, many Everton fans were buzzing after claims that the Toffees could sign this relegation-threatened ace.
