Norwich City youngster Max Aarons is attracting interest from Premier League giants Arsenal and Chelsea, according to reports from The Mirror (October 11th, page 57).
The 18-year old has been mightily impressive for Daniel Farke’s men this season, and has fought off strong competition from Ivo Pinto to make the Canaries’ right-back position his own, after a string of impressive performances.
Reports have now emerged, that the youngster is attractive interest from Unai Emery’s Arsenal and Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea, who are both reportedly keen on signing the England under-19 international, despite recently signing a new five-year deal at Carrow Road.
Aarons has started seven Championship games this term and only made his senior debut for the Canaries at the end of August in Norwich’s Carabao Cup clash with Stevenage.
The Canaries head into the international break having lost just one of their previous seven league outings, and sit 9th in the table after twelve league outings.
This is an interesting development to say the least.
Aarons has been tremendous for Norwich this season and fully deserves his new deal at Carrow Road – it’s testament to Daniel Farke for showing so much faith in his young players, such as Todd Cantwell, Jamal Lewis and of course Aarons.
It’s a real coup to tie him down to a long-term deal, because if Arsenal or Chelsea really do want to land the youngster, they would have to spend some big money.
