Report: Max Aarons opens up on his future amid links with Tottenham


Norwich City were unable to retain their Premier League status in their first season back in the top flight.

The Canaries finished the season propping up the table and were thirteen points behind the nearest side, nineteenth-place Watford.

One of the highlights of Norwich’s season has been the form of Max Aarons, the England Under-21 international has caught the eye in what has been a difficult campaign.

Tottenham have been heavily linked with a move for the 20-year-old with Jose Mourinho said to be keen to bring the youngster to North London (The Athletic).

In recent days, Bayern Munich have emerged as having an interest in Aarons (Sky Sports Austria) with the Norwich player now having spoken about his future.

Aarons has revealed that he will not be looking to push for a move away from Carrow Road following their relegation and is preparing to return to the club for pre-season unless he is told otherwise.

Aarons told The Athletic: “It’s kind of natural that, as a 20-year-old playing in the Premier League, there will be things out there in the press. I just leave that to the people off the pitch, like Stuart [Webber, Norwich sporting director] or the club to deal with.

“I’ve just tried to focus on finishing the season well in myself and now going away, relaxing over the weeks we have off, and then coming in strong for pre-season.

“Anything else that happens or takes place, it’s not really in my hands. All I can do as a professional footballer is try to develop my game and come back sharp, come back strong and come back ready for a big season.

“I’ve got four years left on my contract here, so I’ll be coming back ready to go, ready to attack next year.”
