Exclusive: Frank McAvennie rules out West Ham signing Max Aarons

Frank McAvennie has exclusively told Football FanCast that he doesn’t expect West Ham to pursue a deal for Norwich’s Max Aarons this summer.

The talented right-back has been on the radar of some of Europe’s clubs for some time following his emergence from the Canaries academy, including both Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Tottenham are also keen on the 21-year-old, although reports suggest that the Hammers have emerged as surprise contenders for Aarons’ signature – with Norwich demanding £30million for his services.

Would Max Aarons be a good signing for West Ham?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Aarons has made great strides at Carrow Road in the past three seasons, racking up more than 120 appearances already, and does have previous experience in the Premier League.

But with Vladimir Coufal and Ryan Fredericks in their ranks, McAvennie would be surprised to see West Ham bring in another right-back, especially for such a steep price.

He told Football FanCast:

Who did West Ham lose their first league game of the season against?

“I don’t know if they’re going to sell the boy, but £30million for someone in the Championship is a bit much, because he might not do it in the Premier League.

“I don’t know if West Ham would want him because they have Coufal, and Fredericks and the boy Johnson can step in there as well.

“So, it’s a strange one, they’re not going to drop Coufal, he’s been a wonderful signing, so I don’t get why they would pay £30million for him to sit on the bench.”
