Arsenal is said to have joined their north London rivals Tottenham in chasing Norwich defender Max Aarons yet are unable to pay the player’s £30 m purchase cost for the Canaries.
Aarons was one of only a handful, not many positive points in what was a season of battles for the Canaries, and despite their tough Premier League campaign, he has shone in the full-back job.
If Norwich is relegated to the Championship, the 20-year-old right-back will almost certainly proceed onward in the summer, and Spurs is among the teams that have been most firmly connected to his signature.
Be that as it may, the Gunners are also exceptionally intrigued according to Goal, with manager Mikel Arteta is known to be quick to reinforce his resistance.
In any case, Spurs is presently accepted to be in favor of landing Aarons because of their more grounded financial situation, with Arsenal probably not going to have the option to afford Arteta much cash for transfers due to the coronavirus emergency.
Norwich is reluctant to sell their best player for anything under £30 m, especially given that he simply marked another five-year contract last year, and this is the reason the Gunners could be valued out of a deal for the U-21 international in England.
Regardless of whether Spurs will spend what might be the majority of their transfer financial plan on Aarons remains to be seen, however, their manager Jose Mourinho is desperate to add a full-back, with Serge Aurier and Ben Davies like flattering to misdirect this season.
Aarons, who joined the Luton youth side of Norwich without precedent for 2009, made 27 appearances this season in the Premier League and will be desperate to assist his with siding get some truly necessary focuses when they play their first of two consecutive home games against Southampton on Friday, June 19.
