Norwich City’s head of football development, Stuart Weaver, has claimed that rumoured Tottenham target Max Aarons has a very high ceiling and is good enough to shine for a Champions League side as early as next season.

Aarons has continued his fine form for Norwich this season on the back of his impressive showing in the top-flight last campaign and has been linked with many big clubs over the past few months.

The young right-back was rumoured to be on Tottenham’s radar last summer but the North Londoners ended up snapping up Matt Doherty from Wolves instead.

Eurosport revealed at the start of February that Spurs could swoop for him in the summer as a replacement for Serge Aurier.

It has been suggested that Bayern Munich and Manchester United are also keen on snapping up the 21-year-old while Everton have also been mentioned as potential suitors. 

Weaver has now talked up Aarons’ potential, insisting that the youngster would be able to rise up to any challenge that is put in front of him.

Speaking about the pacy defender, he told Coach’s Voice: “I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Max Aarons was playing Champions League football next year.

“I’m not sure there’s a ceiling for him. There hasn’t been a single part of his journey so far where he hasn’t been in control or looked completely comfortable.

“There’s no indication from Max that he wouldn’t be able to play at any level.”

If we are to enter the market for a new right-back this summer, then Aarons would the ideal acquisition for us. While he will not come cheap, the 21-year-old will be well worth the investment as he could go on to be our main right-back for the next decade or so. Additionally, he would also help address our issues with fulfilling the homegrown player criteria.
