Premier League side Everton are reported to be considering a January move for Norwich City’s Max Aarons, claims Eurosport.
The 20-year-old has enjoyed another fine season this year with Norwich. Now in his third full-season in the Canaries’ first-team, Aarons went on to make 41 Championship appearances in his side’s promotion-winning 2018/19 season.
In the Premier League, Aarons again proved influential making 36 top-flight appearances before this time, featuring in all 19 of Norwich’s Championship fixtures so far this season
Having been very heavily linked with Barcelona over summer, Aarons is a player highly-regarded by many clubs and Daniel Farke will have been surprised and delighted to have been able to keep him at Carrow Road going into this season.
But having impressed once more, it was always likely that January would represent a hotly contested time for the full-back's services, with Everton now considering the move, although Eurosport do suggest that Everton could struggle to finance the deal though.
Having invested significantly in the squad during the transfer window last summer, Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is understood to potentially not have the required financial backing to bring Aarons to Goodison Park next month, with several January transfers already on his radar.
It could spell good news for Norwich, who look set for an immediate return to the top-flight as they sit in the Championship top-spot going into their lunchtime game against Cardiff City today and with a three point gap over 2nd-place Bournemouth.
Aarons though is proving a credit to the club’s youth academy, and looks to be destined for a sustained top flight career and potentially one with England and the national team too – Aarons is likely to be playing in the top-flight somewhere in Europe next season, but who with remains to be seen.
