Tottenham Hotspur have held a long-standing interest in Norwich City’s Max Aarons, however, any decision to move for the right-back will rest with Fabio Pararici, according to Football.London.

Sky Sports claimed that Tottenham considered Aarons in 2019 as a replacement for Kieran Trippier when he made the move to Atletico Madrid and eventually ended up deciding against replacing the England international.

Alasdair Gold claimed during a Q&A piece that Serge Aurier’s future in North London will be key, with the club set to bring in a new right-back if the Ivorian departs this summer.

Aurier revealed last month in an interview with that L’Equipe he has agreed the conditions of his exit with the Tottenham board and will not be signing a contract extension with just twelve months left to run on his existing deal.

Gold admitted that Spurs are admirers of Aarons and the fact that he meets the criteria of the club requiring players who meet the homegrown criteria, however, it will be the Italian who will make the decisions.

Aurier’s time at Tottenham is done, we need to move him on and recoup as much as we can for him before he attemps to walk away on a free.   We have not looked threatening down the flanks since the peak Danny Rose and Kyle Walker axis, Aarons possesses the pace we desperately need.
