Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have received a boost in their reported quest to sign Max Aarons from Norwich City in the summer transfer window.
The Sun reported last month that Arsenal and Manchester United are leading the race for Norwich right-back Aarons. Alongside this, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are also reported to be keen on the 22-year-old, who can also operate as a left-back and is understood to be valued at £20 million by the Canaries.
The Telegraph have now reported that Norwich will sell the English youngster, as they have been relegated the Championship. With the Arsenal rumours gaining pace on the back of this.
The Gunners are a rich club, and if they are able to finish in the Champions League places in the Premier League table this season, then they would be able to afford the £20 million transfer fee for Aarons.
Aarons, described as a player who “has got huge potential” by former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand on his YouTube channel in September 2021, has made 28 starts and two substitute appearances in the Premier League this season, providing one assist in the process. Alongside this he has featured regularly for the England U-21 team over the last couple of year
