LaLiga giants Barcelona have reportedly agreed a five-year deal to sign highly-rated Norwich right-back Max Aarons.
Barca had been chasing Ajax star Sergino Dest but with the USA international set to join Bayern Munich, Koeman has switched his focus to Aarons.
Indeed, Barca are already clearing the way for a new right-back, with Nelson Semedo on his way to Wolves.
Aarons has been a long-term target for Tottenham. But their signing of Matt Doherty appears to opened the door for Barca to strike a deal.
But now a five-year contract has been agreed, with a fee of £20m, plus £10m in add-ons mooted.
Aarons only played one season of top-flight football with the Canaries before they were relegated. However, he emerged as one of their standout stars in a difficult campaign.
The report adds that although Koeman was desperate to bring in Dest, he is more than happy with Aarons.
