Many Everton fans have called for the Merseyside club to sign Max Aarons as Sky Germany (via Sky Sports) have reported that Bayern Munich are keen to sign the Norwich City ace for €20 million, which is the equivalent of around £18.3 million.
As per the outlet, the German giants are looking for a young understudy to Benjamin Pavard, as Bayer Leverkusen are also said to be interested in signing him in this summer transfer window.
Indeed, despite the Canaries being relegated from the Premier League, Aarons was arguably one of their stand-out performers, and comparing his stats to Carlo Ancelotti’s right-back options for the 2020/21 season, perhaps the reported fee is not to be sniffed at.
The 20-year old averaged more interceptions, blocks and key passes per game in the top flight than Seamus Coleman and Jonjoe Kenny for FC Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga, according to Whoscored, as the latter is due to come back from his loan spell for the next term.
Would Aarons start for Everton?
Aarons has also been previously linked with the Blues in the past, and so they may wish to rekindle their interest.
These members of the Goodison Park faithful urged the Toffees to sign the NCFC man on Twitter, with one EFC supporter even branding the Englishman as a ‘bargain’:
Standout player for them. He would be a quality addition.

I like him, one of the best out there for his age. Definitely worth a punt
