Norwich City will listen to any offers that come in for Max Aarons and Todd Cantwell this summer, but there’s been nothing formal on the table at this stage of the summer.
Daniel Farke’s side have won promotion back into the Premier League, but The Athletic report that the club will not stand in the way of players like Aarons, Cantwell and Emi Buendia if suitable formal offers come the club’s way over the course of the transfer window.
Aarons, 21, is one of English football’s most impressive young right-backs and has been courted by Everton, amongst a host of other clubs.
What club do these 21 former Norwich City players ply their trade at now?
Football League World noted last week that Aarons’ plan was to sit tight at this stage of the summer, with nothing materialising.
As for Cantwell, the midfielder scored six goals and registered six assists in the Championship last season, with the 23-year-old impressing as the campaign progressed.
Our Football League World exclusive back in January confirmed that Tottenham and Leicester City were keeping tabs on Cantwell ahead of the summer.
Cantwell is out of contract at Carrow Road in the summer of 2022, with an agreement not yet in place to keep the midfielder at Norwich beyond that.
It’s an interesting take from Norwich this summer, with the club surely needing to retain the likes of Aarons and Cantwell to stand a chance of Premier League success.
Throw Buendia into the mix and it would be difficult to see three players that are so crucial departing.
Of course, it is early days in the transfer window and a lot can change, including Norwich’s stance, but the early indication seems to be that if offers come in, things might progress.
Whether that’s the most sensible of approaches remains to be seen.
