Writing on Twitter, Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas has shared news coming out of Tottenham Hotspur involving Norwich City star Max Aarons.
The Lowdown: Aarons back on the radar?
Alongside problem positions like centre-half, Spurs have also been touted to move for a new right-back this summer if defender Serge Aurier leaves north London.
Reliable correspondent Alasdair Gold recently explained that Tottenham ‘will’ target a full-back replacement for the Ivorian if he does indeed depart (football.london), with a few names already linked.
The Latest: Sky Sports reporter backs Aarons interest…
“Tottenham have renewed their interest in Max Aarons this summer,” explained Thomas on Twitter.
“Joining the growing list of clubs chasing the Norwich right-back.”
The 21-year-old is seen as a solid alternative to fellow target Lamptey, with Brighton thought to want as much as £50 million for the latter man’s signature.
By comparison, the Canaries are said to value Aarons in the region of £30m.
The Verdict: Do it Paratici…
Club managing director Fabio Paratici, who has now been charged with developing the club’s sporting operations, simply must target Aarons if Aurier does leave this summer.
He played a key role under Daniel Farke, helping Norwich bounce straight back to the Premier League whilst starting 45 Championship matches and providing a real threat going forward.
At £30m compared to Lamptey’s possible £50m tag, it’s clear who the better option would be for Tottenham.
