Max Aarons, Norwich right-back

Everton have entered the race for an in-demand Championship right back also being targeted by Bayern Munich and Manchester United. 

Norwich City’s Max Aarons, 21, is attracting plenty of admirers with a summer transfer continuing to be touted.

The defender has impressed in his 117 career appearances for the Canaries, with 36 of those in the Premier League.

Bayern Munich have held a long-term interest, sending scouts to watch him on multiple occasions. The Bavarians could look to make him the next English talent to make the switch to the Bundesliga.

Closer to home, Manchester United are being linked. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to sign competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Aarons is a potential option.

Although, it has been suggested that the Red Devils have been deterred by Norwich’s asking price. With his contract not set to expire until 2024, the Norfolk club are in a strong position to demand a handsome fee.

Reports claim Barcelona, Arsenal and Tottenham are all fans of the player too.

Ancelotti in for Aarons

Now, Everton have been tipped to make a move for the Aarons ahead of next term by Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

 

He says Carlo Ancelotti wants to add another right back to his Toffees squad. Seamus Coleman, Mason Holgate and Ben Godfrey are his current options.

However, Coleman is now 32 and about to enter the final year of his deal, while Holgate and Godfrey are naturally central defenders.

Therefore, Ancelotti is understandably keen to address that area of his team and wants to find a long-term answer.

It is unclear who is favourite to land Aarons, if he does indeed leave Norwich, but Romano adds it is ‘going to be a long race’ for his signature.
