The recruitment drive to rebuild Tottenham’s rather neglected back-line looks to be underway and a source close to the club understands that personal terms are currently being negotiated with Norwich City’s right back, Max Aarons. The 21-year-old had been on the radar of a number of sides, and I am given to understand that Everton were that other Premier League interested, as they pursue upon a mission to replace their ageing Seamus Coleman.
Presumably, this deal either signals the imminent departure of Serge Aurier, or a long-awaited bolstering of the Tottenham squad. I had heard previously that Mourinho was concerned about Aaron’s height but at 5’10, he’s not so tiny.
My understanding is that Spurs had held talks at Carrow Road about a January move, but understandably the Canaries didn’t see it as being in their own best interests to weaken a hugely successful Championship season. I’d see Max as a work in progress, as with Joe Rodon.
