Sky Sports have reported that Norwich City have told Bayern Munich that they will have to pay between £30-35m if they want to sign Max Aarons, who was previously reported to be on Tottenham’s radar.
Aarons showed plenty of promise during his first taste of Premier League football last season and has continued to put in impressive displays for the Canaries, who are aiming to bounce straight back up to the top flight following their relegation last season.
The young right-back was rumoured to be interesting Tottenham last summer but the North Londoners ended up snapping up Matt Doherty from Wolves instead.
It was reported two weeks ago that Spurs have been scouting the Canaries star for a year and he is one of the options the club are considering as a possible replacement for Serge Aurier at the end of the season.
However, Sky Sports have now claimed that Bayern have also been tracking the Aarons for a long time and have already begun negotiations for the 21-year-old through an intermediary.
The Bavarians have been told by Norwich that the right-back will cost £30-35m and the Championship club are said to be in no rush to complete a deal as they are focussed on winning promotion.
The report does not mention Spurs but it is claimed that Manchester United are also keen on the England Under-21 international, having scouted him extensively over recent months.

Given Doherty’s struggles since arriving at Wolves and Aurier’s inconsistency (as well as his contract situation), it looks increasingly likely that we would be in the market for a right-back during the summer transfer window.
Aarons would be ideal since he is young, homegrown and has a high ceiling. However, it remains to be seen if we can compete financially with the other clubs who would be interested in the 20-year-old.
