According to the print edition of The Sunday Mirror, page 72 (as relayed by SportLens), Tottenham Hotspur are keeping a close eye on for Norwich City right-back Max Aarons.

While Aarons has been thought of as a promising talent since breaking into the Norwich first-team in 2018, his stock grew significantly during his debut season in the Premier League with the Canaries last season.

Spurs were linked with a move for the 21-year-old during the summer but ended up snapping up Matt Doherty from Wolves.

Aarons stayed put at Carrow Road, despite Norwich’s relegation to the Championship, and has continued to put in consistent displays for Daniel Farke’s side this season.

Tottenham’s technical performance director, Steve Hitchen, was pictured in attendance during Norwich’s midweek clash against Bristol City.

The Mirror has now revealed that it was Aarons who Hitchen was watching as Tottenham continue to closely monitor the full-back’s situation.

The report asserts that the England Under-21 international is valued at around £20m.

Spurs Web Opinion

The fact that we are continuing to be linked with right-backs might suggest that Jose is not completely satisfied with Aurier and Doherty. It could also mean that Aurier is hesitating to sign a new contract.

If Tottenham are to make a move for Aarons in the summer, it is fair to say that most Spurs fans would rather see us hang on to Aurier and let Doherty leave based on what we have seen so far this season.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Yeah Tottenham or should I say Levy did his usual and went for the budget option in Doherty (who lets face it hasn’t exactly risen to the challenge overall) when we clearly could have signed a highly interested and hugely talented younger defender in Castagne (now of course with ‘close’ rivals Leicester) who despite his present injury has made a big impact on the premiership since arriving this summer.
