Everton’s interest in Max Aarons may have cooled with the club ‘looking at other options’, according to Liverpool Echo journalist Phil Kirkbride.
The Norwich City defender is attracting a huge amount of attention of some stellar performances for the Canaries to help them on the way to automatic promotion this term.
The Toffees and Manchester United are both said to be keen, while West Ham United are also said to be interested in a move.
Reports have suggested that Norwich would be open to selling the player in order to fund potential new arrivals, with Aarons said to be valued at around £30million by Daniel Farke’s side.
But while Everton are thought to be among the frontrunners to make a deal, reporter Kirkbride says that his latest information suggests that Carlo Ancelotti’s side are now looking at alternatives.
Writing for the Liverpool Echo, Kirkbride said: “We reported a few months ago that he was under consideration but Carlo had yet to run the rule over him.
“Our information now is that the club are looking at other options now.”
Are these 17 facts about Norwich City's club badge true or false?
This is something if a surprise, it has to be said.
Everton were one of the clubs who seemed to be at the front of the queue to sign Max Aarons but according to this latest report it seems that the interest may have cooled.
The cynic in me believes that it’s probably a case that the Toffees are just weighing up their options, but no doubt this would be seen as good news for Norwich City.
