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.
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:
“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.”
