Report: Spurs face competition from Crystal Palace and Manchester United for right back target


Amidst reports that Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier would be leaving the club this summer, Spurs have apparently identified Norwich City right back, Max Aarons, as a potential replacement (Mirror).

Max Aarons was an integral part of Norwich’s Championship winning side last season and looks an excellent long-term replacement at right back.

However, securing Aarons’ services doesn’t look an easy task. First and foremost, Norwich will be hoping to keep hold off their promising young full back as they are set to fight it out in the Premier League for the first time since the 2015/16 season.

There is also the small issue of a transfer merry-go-round that could scupper a potential move to Spurs for Max Aarons. With Manchester United heavily interested in Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Palace are looking to Aarons as a potential replacement at right back. On the other hand, Sky Sports have reported that, should Wan-Bissaka stay put, Manchester United may then turn their attention to Aarons as another promising English option to improve their lacklustre defence.

Spurs Web Opinion

Max Aarons is a player I’m very keen on and I believe should be our number one choice to bolster our defence. He’s young and talented and with Manchester United prioritising Wan-Bissaka I think we should be taking advantage of Aarons’ availability, before it’s too late.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. “We should take advantage of his availability…”

    What planet are you on? I’d forgotten how much garbage is spouted by entitled, arrogant supporters in the PL. You just think you have to snap your fingers and throw us some pennies and he’s yours?
    He has 4 years on his contract and he’s going nowhere yet, and certainly not for £15m – maybe after a good year in the PL you can come back with a cheque for £50m or more. Or £100m if you want Lewis as well.

    You’ll see next season that our full backs are up there with Liverpool’s – not as good as them yet, but they are already better than yours.
