According to Sky Sports, Everton are the latest club to enter the race for rumoured Tottenham target Max Aarons ahead of the summer transfer window.

On the back of his impressive showing in what was his first taste of Premier League football last season, Aarons has had another solid campaign for Norwich so far, as Daniel Farke side look to bounce straight back up to the top flight.

Tottenham have had some issues at right-back as summer signing Matt Doherty has not lived up to expectations, with reports indicating that the club might move on the Republic of Ireland international after just one season in North London.

While Serge Aurier started the season well, his form has also trailed off in the last couple of months and the Ivorian will be down to the final year of his contract with Spurs at the end of the season.

Eurosport revealed at the start of this month that Tottenham have been tracking Aarons for over a year and could swoop for him in the summer.

It has been suggested that Bayern Munich and Manchester United are also keen on snapping up the Canaries star.

Sky Sports now claims that Everton have identified Aarons as Seamus Coleman’s long-term replacement and could make an offer for the defender in the summer.

The report suggests that Daniel Farke’s side will demand £30-35m for the 21-year-old irrespective of whether they win promotion to the Premier League.

Spurs Web Opinion

Unless Aurier puts pen to paper on a new contract at Tottenham, the club will have little choice but to move him on in the summer. Doherty too has to have a strong finish to the season if he is to convince Jose that he has a future at the club.

We could well end up in a situation where we move both Aurier and Doherty on in the summer. It is possible that we could sign one right-back and trust Tanganga to cover for the position as the Spurs academy graduate has looked very accomplished whenever he has played there.
