‘Steer clear’- Arsenal eyeing EFL star: The Verdict



Norwich defender Max Aarons couldn’t have wished for a better start to his professional career since he made his debut in a Carabao Cup match against League 2 side Stevenage.

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 signed a new deal at Norwich on Wednesday and will be confident of gaining more first-team opportunities with Norwich who are just a point off the play-off positions.

Speculation regarding Aarons’ future have intensified however with  high-profile clubs reportedly registering their interest in the youngster who has been a vital member of Farke’s squad this season.

Unai Emery’s Arsenal have emerged as one of the frontrunners to sign the promising youngster.

But would a move to either of the club be a good move for Aarons?

We discuss…..

Gary Hutchinson

I’m never a fan of the promising young 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.

Steer clear.

George Harbey

Arsenal are known for promoting youth talent, and new boss Unai Emery has played many youngsters in their Europa League campaign this season.

And who knows, Aarons may be the man to replace Hector Bellerin in the long run, and a move to the Emirates could be a fantastic move for the defender.

George Dagless

It’s too soon to say.

Arsenal are a huge club and Aarons might be better off staying at Norwich for the moment.

He’s a good player but he needs to be playing and won’t at Arsenal.

Jacob Potter

It’s a difficult one because Aarons has shown the potential he already has at Norwich and it’s no surprise to see the big clubs chasing his signature.

But his development is certainly best served at Norwich this season, especially when he has been getting regular first-team football.

If he keeps up this good run of form for the rest of the season, I can see him departing for a Premier League side in the summer.
