The weaknesses in Tottenham’s squad have been left exposed so far this campaign as the team has struggled to put in decent performances. Mauricio Pochettino has been pretty vocal about the problems with the squad and has spoken of the need to fix the issues in January.
The full back areas, in particular, have been a major cause for concern with Danny Rose and Serge Aurier having both failed to put in convincing displays this season.
After letting Kieran Trippier leave in the summer, Pochettino gave Kyle Walker-Peters a few opportunities at the start of the season but neither he nor Aurier have managed to nail down the spot.
The Daily Mail reported a couple of days ago that Spurs are targeting Norwich City defender Max Aarons in January in order to bolster their options at right-back.
Norwich manager Daniel Farke admitted that the Canaries would not stand in the way of a player leaving for a bigger club if the price was right (The Telegraph).
Some Spurs fans on social media were delighted with the link and urged the club to get the 19-year-old signed when the transfer window reopens

I’m so inherently suspicious of any “good” Tottenham news that this Max Aarons possible availability makes me think something is off, and why would Norwich suddenly be open to selling? pic.twitter.com/ToKlYtQzOQ

Sell Rose and give Sess the LB spot and Sell Aurier and buy max Aarons or Ferguson – young hungry fullbacks who can defend and attack and have passion and would fight for the badge and bring youthful energy back to the side/defence! #THFC ⚪️

Tyrone Mings, max Aarons, and Grealish/Fernandes in January. Have to fix this team. Time to let players go and start to rebuild

Spurs Web Opinion
If Spurs do decide to bid for Aarons, then that suggests that the coaching staff do not have much confidence in Walker-Peters. I was extremely excited for Juan Foyth to be given a go at right back this campaign but he, unfortunately, picked up an injury during preseason. I still believe the Argentine has the ability to turn into a top full back and hope he gets the opportunities to shine in that position.
