Tottenham target gives intriguing response to Bayern Munich links

Norwich full-back Max Aarons has admitted that his future is out of his hands amid reports he is a target for Bayern Munich.

Aarons was one of Norwich’s better performers in 2019-20, despite their return to the Premier League ending in an immediate relegation.

The 20-year-old right-back played in all but two of the Canaries’ league games, earning his place in the Engand under-21 squad.

With Norwich’s immediate future destined for the second tier, they could be fearful of losing some of their key players. Aarons is one such player, as reports have linked him with a move to a bigger club.

Tottenham are reportedly in the hunt for Aarons, who only made his senior debut in 2018. Spurs failed to replace Kieran Trippier last summer, meaning they still have room for another right-back.

However, Bayern Munich have come in strongly in the race for Aarons. Reports in Germany claim the Bundesliga giants are aiming to sign him for €20m.

The full-back has now responded to talk of a move – but he did little to increase Spurs’ hopes of signing him.

He told The Athletic: “It’s kind of natural that, as a 20-year-old playing in the Premier League, there will be things out there in the press. I just leave that to the people off the pitch, like Stuart [Webber, Norwich sporting director] or the club to deal with.

“I’ve just tried to focus on finishing the season well in myself and now going away, relaxing over the weeks we have off, and then coming in strong for pre-season.

“Anything else that happens or takes place, it’s not really in my hands. All I can do as a professional footballer is try to develop my game and come back sharp, come back strong and come back ready for a big season.

“I’ve got four years left on my contract here, so I’ll be coming back ready to go, ready to attack next year.”
