AC Milan and Roma have joined the list of clubs who want to sign Max Aarons from Norwich City. It is understood according to media reports that both of the Italian clubs are intending to submit bids to Norwich for 20-year-old Aarons in the near future.
Barcelona and Bayern Munich also want him if they fail to sign Ajax's 19-year-old USA international right-back Sergino Dest.
Aarons, however, would like to wait a little longer to see how the situation with Dest develops, with both Barcelona and Bayern having previously expressed concrete interest in the highly-rated England U21 defender.
Sky Sports News reported earlier this month that Barcelona had agreed personal terms with Aarons over a loan move to La Liga.
But the deal broke down after Norwich were reluctant to let the defender leave because there was no obligation to buy at the end of the loan.
Sky Germany reported earlier in the transfer window that Bayern were prepared to pay €20m (£18.3m) to sign Aarons permanently, while Bayer Leverkusen have also been keen on the defender.
£30m-rated centre-back Ben Godfrey has also attracted interest from AC Milan, and from Leverkusen.
Aarons enjoyed an impressive 2019/20 campaign under Daniel Farke, excelling in 40 appearances in all competitions, despite Norwich's relegation to the Sky Bet Championship.
He is under contract at Carrow Road until June 2024.
