Tottenham Hotspur have been in need of a new right-back for some time now, arguably ever since Kyle Walker was sold to Manchester City.
Kieran Trippier stepped up into the first-team role and Serge Aurier was brought in as a back-up, before Trippier was also sold and the former PSG man then stepped up.
It has been a rather unorthodox chain in North London, with Spurs not really going out and buying a starting right-back for some time now.
However, one man who has been linked to the club over the past year is Norwich City defender Max Aarons, who has impressed so far this season.
The Mail reported this week that Spurs and Mourinho were keen on bringing in Aarons as early as January. Aarons has been a first-team player at Norwich for two seasons now, impressive for a lad of just 19.
Robinson claims that Aarons could be destined to join his former team. He said (Football Insider): “I think he is probably one for the future, he is only 19-years-old.
“This is only his second full season playing, he did a full season in the Championship last year, he’s got some U-21s caps, but I don’t think a player like that is ready-made to go into the Spurs team, but he’s certainly one for the future.
“He’s in the Jack Clarke mould as you’d buy him then loan him back in order for him to carry on his education.
“He’s an interesting story Max Aarons actually.
“Because he went for a trial at Tottenham, rejected a contract at Luton, and his trial was unsuccessful, so he turned down the contract at Luton then Tottenham rejected him.
“It didn’t work out so that’s how he ended up at Norwich after a year or so out of football.
“It could be fate that he ends up back at Tottenham, but I don’t think he’s the immediate answer to the problems we’ve got at right-back.”
