Manchester United have opened talks with Norwich City in a potential summer transfer move for Max Aarons, according to Italian publication CalcioMercato.

They claim that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is willing to let youngster Diogo Dalot – currently on loan at Italian giants A.C. Milan – leave permanently at the end of the season, and the Norwegian has begun sighting new competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

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

The 21-year-old is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the EFL, and despite the Canaries being relegated from the Premier League last season, Aarons was widely praised for his abilities as a flying full-back.  As a consequence of this he has since been linked steadily with a string of high profile moves to top flight clubs such as Man Utd and Tottenham Hotspur, as well as overseas moves to the German and Spanish top divisions.

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.

Transfer News: Norwich Confirm Signing Of Bolton's Teen Star Regan Riley

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.

The youngster arrives from hometown club Bolton Wanderers, where he has made two senior appearances to date.

Speaking to canaries.co.uk, Riley said: “I’m over the moon to finally get the deal done. It has always been a dream of mine to become a professional footballer and I’m buzzing to have signed with Norwich City.

“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.”

Riley will initially form part of the club’s development and academy setup.

Transfer News: Norwich Agree Deal With Bolton For Youngster Regan Riley

Norwich City have agreed a £250,000 deal for Bolton Wanderers youngster Regan Riley, Football Insider understands.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider Riley is currently undergoing a medical with the Championship's top team who are currently eyeing a return to the Premier League at the first time of asking.  The Canaries currently sit six points clear of the play-off positions at the top of the table.

Riley became Bolton’s fifth youngest-ever player last season when he made his debut against Tranmere Rovers in League One.

He made his first start for the club in their 2-1 defeat to Shrewsbury Town in the EFL Trophy earlier this season.

Evatt refused to be drawn on Norwich’s interest on Friday but told the Bolton News he rates the boyhood Bolton fan highly.

He added: “Certainly we’re not in a rush to sell or anything like that, we’ll do what we think is right for the football club moving forward and what’s going to be of benefit.”

Manager Daniel Farke has not been shy of calling up young players this term with teenagers Tyrese Omotoye, Andrew Omobamidele and Josh Martin all regulars in his matchday squad.

Riley will most likely link up with Norwich City’s Under-23s squad who compete in Premier League 2 Division 2.

The young Canaries currently sit in 10th position and have lost their last four games.

Transfer News: Signing Of Goalkeeper Orjan Nyland Completed

In what may well turn out to be the first of a number of deals completed today by the club if things go their way, Norwich City have signed former Aston Villa goalkeeper Orjan Nyland:

Daniel Farke's Championship leaders have brought in the 30-year-old Norwegian as a free agent on a short-term deal until the end of the current season.

Nyland was part of the Villa side that won promotion to the Premier League in 2018-19, making a total of 36 appearances in his two seasons there.

"I've had a lot of offers, but when Norwich came along, it felt like the right thing to do," he said. "I had good talks with the manager and the goalkeeper coach, as well as the sporting director, so it was an easy choice really.

City head coach Daniel Farke said: "Orjan has proved he can play at both Championship and Premier League level, as well as in the Bundesliga in Germany

"We are totally happy to have Tim Krul and Daniel Barden both available for selection, but we got the feeling that because we are in such a good position in the league we wanted to add some depth."

Transfer News: Norwich To Sign Experienced Norwegian International Keeper Orjan Nyland

Orjan Nyland is poised to become a Norwich City player before the January transfer window ends on Monday.

The Norwegian international is expected to complete his move over the weekend after further talks this week. The Canaries have been searching for goalkeeping reinforcements in the January window since Michael McGovern suffered a major hamstring injury in December.

Daniel Farke has made little secret of City's desire to recruit an understudy to Tim Krul. Academy keeper Dan Barden has impressed during his cameos, but City have clamoured for more experience as they continue their push towards the Premier League.

There had been concerns over the fitness of the Norweigan after he underwent back surgery in November but appears to have proven his physical condition to the Canaries hierarchy.

He made seven appearances for Aston Villa in the Premier League last season but mutually agreed to terminate his contract in the Midlands after falling down the pecking order.

The 30-year-old is yet to train with City keeper Tim Krul and some fine details need to be completed before his official unveiling. That could roll into Transfer Deadline Day on Monday.

Nyland will become the Canaries' second signing of the window after they secured the services of PAOK left-back Dimitris Giannoulis on a loan to buy deal.

Speaking in December to Norweigan outlet TV2, Nyland admitted he would be happy to be a second-choice as he continues to get himself back to full fitness: "For me, it's only in the first phase, until the summer, about getting into a team and training myself again and getting in shape.

"If I can play games that way too, that's great. Then we take an evaluation for the summer around where you can possibly write a longer contract and get to play for several years and be the first goalkeeper," Nyland said.

Farke was coy on City's progress in their search for a goalkeeper in his press conference prior to tomorrow's clash with Middlesbrough at Carrow Road, but reiterated their desire to sign another option.

"The goalkeeper position is one where we will stay aware. It has eased up because Tim Krul is back and his Covid situation is done, the situation with his quad is done and Covid won't be a topic for him for the rest of the season.

"Daniel Barden has stepped up and been fantastic. If I had the guarantee that they would both go without injuries or illness then it would be no problem at all to go just with them two.

"I think we are in a position in the table where we have to show our responsibility," Farke said.

"There wouldn't be a problem if Daniel was ill for one or two gamedays, then we could just bring one of our academy options in and he could sit on the bench. If Tim missed one or two games then no worries, Daniel could play and he has proven that he can deliver on this level.

"We have to be prepared for the worst case. If there is an illness or injury for a handful of games, then we need to try everything to bring a proper option in. Let's see. If not, then we go with our lads.

"If there is an opportunity before the end of the window then we will go with it."
