According to a report by The Times, Tottenham Hotspur have renewed their interest in signing Norwich City defender Max Aarons.
The Lowdown: Tottenham and Aarons
Links to the Canaries full-back are nothing new, with Spurs even eyeing him as far back as last summer.
Indeed, Tottenham were touted with a move for the promising English ace in 2020 with reports detailing that they could now make a move this window.
Aarons played a big role in helping Norwich secure promotion back to the top flight and he has no shortage of suitors, with Sky Sports reporting they rate him at around £30 million amid interest.
The Latest: The Times say Spurs are eyeing Aarons…
Now, The Times have backed Tottenham’s fondness of Aarons and have namedropped him as one of a list of players who Spurs are well and truly keeping tabs on.
As well as the 21-year-old, Spurs are eyeing a few other defenders in Serie A stars Takehiro Tomiyasu and Milan Skriniar.
After Tottenham appointed Nuno Espirito Santo as their new head coach, attention can now seemingly turn to the transfer market with an interesting summer up ahead.
The Verdict: Great option…
Serge Aurier has been strongly tipped with a move away from north London this summer with the player even admitting himself that he has reached the ‘end of a cycle‘.
Tottenham will need a replacement and Aarons is someone who could fit the bill nicely, especially given his threat going forward.
Only Son Heung-min in the Lilywhites squad averaged more crosses into the box per 90 (1) than Aarons (0.8) over 2020/2021, with the youngster even equalling Gareth Bale’s total of 1.4 completed dribbles (WhoScored).
We believe he should, at the very least, be at the top of Tottenham’s summer transfer wish list.
