According to a report from the Daily Mail, a big transfer could still be on the horizon for Tottenham, with Norwich City defender Max Aarons still attracting interest.
Aarons, who was targeted by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy earlier this year, is apparently still on Tottenham’s radar despite the club’s recent acquisition of Matt Doherty in a £15m deal.
Aarons transfer twist
The signing of Doherty, as well as Spurs’ decision to keep Serge Aurier in a battle for the right-back slot, appeared to diminish all hope of landing Aarons this window, but the Mail claimed that Levy is still interested in a move for the Norwich defender.
Jose Mourinho wanted to reinforce his full-back positions over the summer, landing both Doherty and Spanish international Sergio Reguilon to feature on either flank.
Would you still take Max Aarons at Spurs?
No, we have Doherty and Aurier
Touted as a move which could ‘raise a few eyebrows‘ earlier this year, it appears that notion could still be relevant six months later as the club weigh up a potential swoop for Aarons. Speaking on Spurs’ links with Aarons, former Tottenham striker Darren Bent claimed he would be a ‘great signing for Spurs‘ – and Levy could still land him given his Championship status.
However, if Tottenham want to make a surprise deal happen, they will have to act quickly given the EFL bonus window shuts at 5pm on Friday.
Transfer Tavern take
Starting 36 Premier League matches for the Canaries over 2019/20, despite failing to help them steer clear of relegation, Aarons was a standout performer, leaving little wonder as to why Spurs are keeping a watchful eye on him.
The 20-year-old would undoubtedly seem a great signing, but whether or not Tottenham go through with a late move remains to be seen.
