What Spurs target Max Aarons could bring to the club

Tottenham Hotspur continue to be linked with right-backs.

On the chalkboard

Football London reported on Tuesday that Max Aarons and Nathan Ferguson are both being considered as potential signings, with Serge Aurier wanted by AC Milan.

But what exactly would Aarons bring to north London?

Well, the Norwich City man has been almost ever-present for Daniel Farke’s side this season, missing just two Premier League games, against Manchester City and Burnley.

Would Max Aarons immediately dislodge Serge Aurier from the XI?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And, per WhoScored prior to this weekend’s game against Bournemouth, he appears to be the flying full-back that Spurs could well do with, particularly if Aurier departs.

He averages 1.3 tackles, 0.6 interceptions, 2.2 clearances and 0.9 blocks per game, while he is dribbled past on just 0.5 occasions.

Offensively, he averages an impressive 0.8 key passes per game from defence, along with 0.6 shots and 1.4 dribbles, while also being fouled 1.4 times.

His pass success rate of 79% could use a little bit of work but one expects some leeway there, given that Aarons regularly passes the ball on the move, while he flies down the flank.

Still just 20, he has picked up five yellow cards this season but he remains an impressive prospect and a potential star in the making.

Spurs’ ideal signing

Spurs love to bring in players with a high ceiling and help them reach it.

They did exactly that with Dele Alli and this could be a very similar story.

Aarons, at the moment, is playing in a team that are mired in a relegation battle yet his numbers stand out and point to a player who is ready to make the jump up the table.

The big fat Tottenham quiz of 2019 – how much do you remember about the last year at Spurs?

How many red cards has Heung-Min Son received in 2019?

He is unlikely to come cheap due to his age and his homegrown status but he could be worth every penny.

Indeed, Aarons offers both longevity and genuine talent and could well make the right-back spot in north London his own for the next decade or more.

Spurs should make a move to bring him in as quickly as possible.

Meanwhile, Spurs fans have reacted to a potentially massive swap deal
