According to a report from The Times, Tottenham are now back in the hunt for Norwich City defender Max Aarons. 

Tottenham certainly look in need of reinforcements at right-back this summer, with Serge Aurier continuing to be plagued by inconsistency and Matt Doherty failing to make the expected impact following his move from Wolves last summer.

Aurier is expected to leave the club this summer and previous reports indicated that Aarons is one of the options Tottenham are eyeing as a potential replacement for the Ivorian.

The 21-year-old has enjoyed another impressive campaign at Carrow Road, playing a valued role in the Canaries’ march to the Championship title last season.

Some sources have claimed that Spurs could face competition from their North London rivals, Arsenal, for the England Under-21 international.

The Times have now asserted that after confirming the appointment of Nuno Espirito Santo as their head coach, Tottenham are ready to reignite their interest in Aarons.

It is revealed that Spurs failed with an approach for the Norwich star last summer and are now expected to make another move for the right-back as they attempt to bolster their backline.

Spurs Web Opinion 

One of either Aarons or Lamptey would be ideal for us this summer given our issues at right-backs, as well as our problems over recent years in fulfilling the homegrown rule.

Aarons certainly has the engine and the attacking intent to thrive as a wing-back if Nuno does decide to deploy a back three but he has also shown over the past couple of years at Carrow Road that he is good enough defensively to play as a right-back in a back four.
