Norwich City defender Max Aarons, who has been linked with a move to Spurs has talked in glowing terms about the atmosphere at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Aarons has been one of the Canaries’ stand out performers this campaign and Spurs have reportedly made the young right-back one of their top targets in the summer, according to Football Insider.
Serge Aurier is currently Tottenham’s only natural right-back option following Jose Mourinho’s decision to send Kyle Walker-Peters out on loan to Southampton.
Football.London’s Alasdair Gold late last month also backed Tottenham to make an approach for Aarons and has said he would be stunned if the North Londoners fail to make an approach for the 20-year-old.
Aarons has now spoken about the experience of beating the Lilywhites on their own patch. Norwich emerged as winners after a penalty shootout in the FA Cup fifth-round clash against Jose Mourinho’s side last month.
Speaking about the game to the Byline Podcast, the young defender said: “We knew that playing against a Jose Mourinho side, that they’d be solid and hard to beat. We felt we could go there and get somewhere. The atmosphere was great, we took 9,000 fans and the place was buzzing.
“Our manager kept saying to us that ‘this is really set up for us to put on a real good show and get something from the game’. As soon as it went to extra time, as a team, we felt at our fittest and thought we could get something.”

Signing Aarons will be a no-brainer for Spurs as not only does he have tremendous potential to develop into a top right-back but he will probably not cost a lot particularly if Norwich go down. However, at this point, we have to wait and see how the coronavirus shutdown affects clubs’ ability to spend in the transfer market.
