Everton are looking at Norwich City right-back Max Aarons as a target in the summer, as reported by Italian transfer insider Fabrizio Romano on his Twitter account. The journalist previously reported Aarons to be on the radar of Bundesliga Champions and sextuple winners Bayern Munich.
While the Bavarians still have their eye on the full-back, Everton have added themselves into the list of potential suitors. Toffees manager Carlo Ancelotti wants the youngster at the club, especially since club captain Seamus Coleman is on the wrong side of 30 and recently spent a small period of time on the sidelines.
Aarons could be a long-term solution for an option in right-back for the Merseysiders. However, considering that he is the most valuable player in the Championship, he won’t come for cheap and Everton will have to shell out a decent amount to convince Norwich to sell their star player.
The fact that he has a contract running until 2024 also does the financial side of things no favours from the Premier League club’s point of view.
Bayern Munich have reportedly started negotiations with Norwich regarding the player, and it is set to be a long race in the summer to see who the 21-year-old ultimately ends up signing for. The reason behind the Germans’ pursuit of the player is Hansi Flick’s lack of faith in summer acquisition Buona Sarr, who was recruited to fill in for Benjamin Pavard.
While Pavard has returned to fitness, Sarr has found playing time hard to come by, and Aarons could be the solution to the problems posed by the Frenchman’s fitness.
