After making his Norwich City debut in a Carabao Cup game against Stevenage in August, Max Aarons has cemented his position in Daniel Farke’s starting XI.
The 18-year-old has gone on to make seven starts for the Canaries and his good run of form has seen him establish himself as the first choice right-back at Carrow Road, keeping the experienced Ivo Pinto out of the side.
Aarons recently signed a new deal at Norwich on Wednesday and will be keen to build on the promising start he has made to his professional career.
But his recent performances haven’t gone unnoticed with a number of high-profile clubs reportedly registering their interest in the youngster who has played a significant part in his side’s impressive start to the season.
Chelsea have emerged as one of the favourites to sign the 18-year-old.
But would a move to Stamford Bridge be a good move for Aarons?
I’m never a fan of the promising Championship talent being taken by one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League.
He’ll just end up as one of the 40 or so they have out on loan.
Chelsea don’t bring through young players- it’s just not in their DNA.
Aarons should stay put and then make a move to a club- if Norwich don’t go up- that will guarantee the minutes.
Players with his potential need to play.
When you look at Chelsea’s youth policy, it seems that they just buy players and send them out on loan to make a profit in the long run, with many of their young stars failing to get a chance in the first team.
Look at Mason Mount, he’s one of the best players in the Championship this season but hasn’t had a look-in at Chelsea in the past, despite being recently called up to the England squad by Gareth Southgate.
He should avoid this move at all costs.
Chelsea have a bad history with the best young talent with many being sent out on loan so a move for Aarons to Stamford Bridge would significantly affect his career- for all the wrong reasons.
He needs regular game time and should stay at Norwich to do just that this season.
