Tottenham Hotspur are assessing a potential move for Max Aarons, according to Michael Ball.
The Norwich City star looks set to be one of the main talking points in the summer transfer market with reports suggesting that a number of clubs such as Everton are said to be keen on a move for the player, who is valued at £30million.
Aarons enjoyed a wonderful season for the Canaries making 45 appearances and contributing seven goal involvements as Daniel Farke’s side went on to secure the Championship title.
Everton are seen as favourites to sign the 21-year-old, but according to ex-Everton man Michael Ball, the Toffees are preparing for Spurs to step up their interest in the full-back.
Speaking to Football Fancast, Ball said: “Max has got that ability, he’s got that experience even though he’s so young. Everton are probably going to have a battle on their hands, there’s going to be many clubs looking at Max, abroad and in the Premier League.
“Tottenham are looking at him as well. Everton won’t want to go into a bidding war but I feel Max Aarons is probably Everton’s number one target if they can get the deal right for both parties.
“But I feel Everton might step away from the deal if it starts pushing up too high in a bidding war and look for other options but I feel Max is the right style and right player for our football club.”
Are these 17 facts about Norwich City's club badge true or false?
Max Aarons is a really hot property this summer.
It’s not a surprise after such an impressive campaign for Norwich City, but unfortunately for the Canaries it seems increasingly unlikely that he’ll be staying at Carrow Road.
Everton would be a tempting proposition for the player, however a move to Spurs would offer him the chance of playing European football.
Where he’ll end up remains to be seen, but one thing we do know is that Norwich will not be letting the player leave on the cheap.
