Norwich City defender Max Aarons is reportedly a transfer target for some of Europe’s biggest clubs, with Manchester United and Bayern Munich interested in securing a deal for the talented full-back.
Norwich will reportedly hold out for a fee up to £35 million for the full-back, with the 21-year-old valued at £18 million according to Transfermarkt.
He has been an ever-present figure in the Norwich side and appeared in all 34 of the Canaries’ Championship fixtures to date this season.
He has found the net in a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday and claimed assists in the games against Reading, Middlesbrough and Rotherham United.
The stock of Aarons is rising all the time and Norwich legend Darren Huckerby described him as a “special player” with an “unbelievable future.”
It loks like Canaries Sporting Director Stuart Webber faces a battle to keep the talented youngster at Carrow Road.
Norwich are in a commanding position to secure an automatic return to the Premier League, and it is vital that they keep hold of a player with the quality of Aarons with the long-term future of the club in mind.
The full-back has just over three years left on his existing deal and it remains imperative to tie him down to a long-term contract.
Keeping players like Aarons would enable the Canaries to ditch their reputation as a yo-yo club and allow them to look to establish themselves in the top flight once they return.
The club has sold a host of academy graduates in recent years that includes the likes of James Maddison, Ben Godfrey and Jamal Lewis, but they may need to hold onto their up-and-coming stars to take them to the next level.
Canaries’ fans will be hoping that Aarons will go on to star in the Premier League for Norwich in the very near future.
