Transfer News: Norwich Put £35m Price Tag On Aarons As Bayern Make Approach

Norwich have told Bayern Munich they will have to pay between £30-35m if they want to sign Max Aarons this summer.

The German champions have been scouting Aarons for two years and have begun negotiating with the Canaries through an intermediary over a deal for the right-back.

Norwich are in no rush to discuss a deal, though, and would prefer to conclude talks at the end of the season. They are currently top of the Championship and are keen to focus their attentions on an immediate return to the Premier League

Manchester United are also understood to be keen to bolster their options at right-back in the summer and have been scouting Aarons extensively in recent months.

The 21-year-old was close to a move to Barcelona in September, only for the deal to collapse and the Spanish giants to sign Ajax full-back Sergino Dest instead.

Aarons has impressed for Norwich this season, playing every minute of their 29 league games and chipping in with a goal and three assists.

He began his career with Norwich and has gone on to make 114 appearances for the club. He made his debut in August 2018 and quickly went on to establish himself as the club's first-choice right-back.

Transfer Rumour: Huddersfield Midfielder Lewis O’Brien on Norwich's Radar

Huddersfield Town midfielder Lewis O’Brien is finding himself in-demand once again, with Championship promotion rivals Norwich City and Brentford both having him on their radars, according to Alan Nixon.

But there’s a caveat – it looks like both outfits will only consider moving for the Terriers player if they gain promotion to the Premier League.

O’Brien was reportedly sought after by many clubs in the January transfer window, with Burnley strong admirers of his work and following their American takeover they were linked with a mid-season bid for him.

With a lack of money being spent last month by Premier League clubs, nothing came of it and O’Brien remains a Terrier – but for how long is anyone’s guess.

With a lack of money being spent last month by Premier League clubs, nothing came of it and O’Brien remains a Terrier – but for how long is anyone’s guess.

22-year-old O’Brien has played 25 league games for Huddersfield this season – mainly in the centre of midfield but has also filled in on the wing and at left-back – and is the real driving force of Carlos Corberan’s outfit.

That is why he’s attracting interest from high-flyers like Norwich and Brentford, the former of whom could do with strengthening their engine room a lot – especially when arguably their best player there in Oliver Skipp is only on loan.

As for Brentford, they seem well-stacked in midfielders right now with the likes of Josh Da Silva, Vitaly Janelt, and Christian Norgaard, but there’s always room to strengthen.

O’Brien’s numbers output-wise aren’t staggering – he’s just got one goal and two assists this season – but he brings more to a team including energy and the willingness to drive forward up the pitch with the ball, which is why the likes of Daniel Farke and Thomas Frank have their eye on him.

Milan leave on a permanent deal at the end of the current season, and the Norwegian manager has begun sighting new competitionat right back for the established first choice Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Kieran Trippier of Atletico Madrid is also apparently on the radar, but Aarons is the other option.

The 21-year-old right sided defender is currently regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the football league, and despite the Canaries being relegated from the Premier League lat the end of ast season, Aarons won wide acclaim and praise for his abilities as a flying full-back.

His good performances have continued into the current campaign – he has played every single minute in the Championship and his partnership down the right-hand side of the pitch with Emi Buendia is too much for most defences in the second tier to handle.

Aarons put all talk of a potential move to Barcelona in the summer of 2020 behind him and he’s helped guide Norwich to the top of the Championship as they seek an immediate return to the top flight.

Norwich Defender Akin Famewo Continues His Recovery On Loan At Charlton

Akin Famewo made his playing comeback for Charlton Athletic today – with manager Lee Bowyer saying it will take a couple of days to fully assess the defender’s prospects of being available against Gillingham on Saturday.

The on-loan Norwich City centre-back has only featured twice since the end of October due to injuries.

But Famewo clocked up 62 minutes for the Addicks’ U23s in their 4-3 loss at Bristol City this afternoon.

Charlton kept a clean sheet in last weekend’s 2-0 victory at Rochdale, easing the pressure slightly for immediate defensive reinforcements.

“We’ll see how he is tomorrow and Thursday,” said Bowyer. “He got 60 minutes in today, which is the most important thing and came through okay. It’s whether he gets any reaction tomorrow or Thursday.

“He didn’t come off injured. I think the next 48 hours are important. Of course we want to bring him back into the fold but again we have to weigh up what is best, there are still a lot of games to go. If we rush him back too soon he’ll break down and we’ll all regret it. We have to handle it the right way.”

Transfer Rumour: Man Utd Linked With Summer Move For Max Aarons

Manchester United have been urged to sign another right-back this summer by their former defender Fabio, as per a report featured in the Manchester Evening News.

The Red Devils have been repeatedly linked ssince the end of last season with a move for Norwich City’s young English right back Max Aarons and may well look to rekindle a move for the future star at the end of the current season, as reported on ESPN.

This would mean that the bring in both some competition and much needed cover for Aaron Wan-Bissaka over the summer.

Aarons, who is 21 years old, is one of the ‘names in the frame’ according to ESPN and Manchester United could be keeping tabs on him. He is impressing in the Championship this season with the Canaries.

When asked whether United need another right-back, Fabio said: “Definitely. If you see how Luke Shaw is doing this season, I think it’s the best season he’s been having for so long at Man United. Telles has made him improve, someone to say ‘if you’re not playing well, if you’re not concentrating, working hard, you’re going to lose your place’.

“This definitely makes you play better, so for Wan-Bissaka if they bring in a good right-back, you’re going to help him to improve. 100 per cent, this is what makes players compete for their place, and to improve. If you play every game, you have no competition and you can start to get in a comfort zone, it’s not good for you.”

Norwich managed to keep hold of Aarons after their relegation from the Premier League last term and he has helped them rise to the top of the second tier table this season under Daniel Farke.

Norwich City have completed the signing of midfielder Regan Riley from Bolton Wanderers for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of an initial £250k + add ons.

Riley, 18, has put pen to paper on a contract through to the summer of 2024 with the option of an additional year.

“I’ve heard lots of good things about the club and it looks like a club that I can develop at. The club have a reputation for developing young players and that really excites me.

“I’ve seen the likes of Ben Godfrey, Max Aarons and Todd Cantwell come through the system, so it gives you the confidence and platform to hopefully show what I’m about.

“I consider myself a box-to-box midfielder who’ll work hard for the team. I’m also looking forward to developing off the field moving away from Bolton to Norwich. I’m excited and can’t wait to get going.”
