Report: Spurs have begun talks over deal for Premier League right-back


Tottenham Hotspur have received a boost after Norwich City boss Daniel Farke claimed that he would not stand in the way of a bigger club for the right price.

The Telegraph claim that Tottenham have already begun talks over a possible deal for Canaries right-back Max Aarons.

The 19-year-old was linked with a move to North London during the summer (Football.London) before he signed a new five-year contract at Carrow Road (Norwich official).

Spurs failed to fill the void left by Kieran Trippier following his departure to Atletico Madrid during the summer transfer window with Mauricio Pochettino already having played a number of players in the role.

Despite the new season still in its infancy, Serge Aurier, Kyle Walker-Peters, Davinson Sanchez and Moussa Sissoko have all played on the right side of defence.

The report claims that if Norwich were to allow Aarons to leave, they would stipulate that additional performance-related clauses would be included to maximise the transfer fee.

Farke told The Telegraph: “Sometimes a player develops quicker than a club and you have to accept it if a player wants to have a bigger move and that there are bigger clubs in world football than we are,” 

“But there is no financial pressure on us – we don’t have to sell any player even if there is an offer of £200million. We don’t need the money to keep the club going.”
