Manager confident club can resist interest in rumoured Spurs target


Norwich City boss Daniel Farke is confident that the Canaries can keep hold of Max Aarons despite rumoured interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

Aarons signed a new five-year deal with the Premier League newcomers in July after being linked as a potential replacement for Kieran Trippier who left North London to join Atletico Madrid (Football.London).

Farke believes that Norwich will not be forced into selling the right-back in the January transfer window despite their top flight status being in jeopardy and is instead expecting his best players to still be at Carrow Road come the end of the campaign.

Spurs have already utilised a number of players at right-back, especially earlier in the season under Mauricio Pochettino which saw Kyle Walker-Peters, Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez and Moussa Sissoko on the right side of his defence.

The arrival of Jose Mourinho has seen some consistency in the position with Aurier having played every Premier League game under the Portuguese (transfermarkt).

Farke told The Telegraph: “I’m not worried about any bidding,”

“Interest in our players means we are doing many things right. Last season, we always had to sell our best players but we don’t have to sell any players. That’s a good situation. We need Max for the season and that’s a good situation. There’s no scenario where we would sell one of our top ones.

“Our financial position is quite relaxed and we know we need all our key players to have a small chance to create a big sensation (and stay up). So we’re not tempted at all to do something stupid and sell our best players.

“In this business, you never know so sometimes there’s an unbelievable offer and the club decides to do some business. But in such a comfortable situation, I don’t expect any business.”
