Report: Tottenham cool interest in signing 20-year-old defender


Tottenham’s interest in signing Norwich City defender Max Aarons has cooled as the club look at other possible options to bring in.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho has decided that he needs a more physical option at full-back and the club are thus said to have temporarily abandoned their chase for Aarons.

The 20-year-old defender has earned fantastic reviews since breaking into the Canaries squad at the start of last season and he has adapted well to life in the Premier League this campaign.

Aarons was one of Norwich’s best players on Wednesday as Daniel Farke’s side went down 2-1 to Mourinho’s men at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The report in the Daily Mail claims that Tottenham’s transfer priorities have changed after the injuries to Moussa Sissoko and Harry Kane and the club are thus unlikely to go in for Aarons this month.

Spurs Web Opinion

While I would have identified Aarons as a priority for us until a month ago, the emergence of Tanganga has meant that we are not desperate for defensive additions at the moment. I believe it is much more crucial that we get in a top striker to lead the line before the end of the month. We can reassess both full-back situations in the summer.
