Wolverhampton Wanderers have emerged as contenders to sign Norwich City right-back Max Aarons this summer (The Mirror (19/07/20, p67).

The 20-year-old has been linked with a potential summer switch to Tottenham Hotspur with the Canaries valuing the youngster at around £30million (Mirror).

Spurs decided against recruiting a replacement for Kieran Trippier when he made the move to Atletico Madrid last summer.

Kyle Walker-Peters started the first three matches of the Premier League campaign under Mauricio Pochettino before suffering a hamstring injury and was subsequently loaned out to Southampton in January where he has been impressing on the south coast.

Serge Aurier is the only experienced left-back remaining in the squad in North London with the Evening Standard recently reporting that the Ivorian is expected to push for a move away from the Lilywhites this summer.

Wolves are said to be ready to give Aarons a Premier League lifeline following the Canaries return to the Championship.

The Times claimed earlier this month that Jose Mourinho has reservations over Aarons, with the Portuguese believing that the England Under-21 international is not big enough.
