Norwich City are heading back to the Premier League next season after one year in the Championship. Their promotion was confirmed earlier this month, but with three games to go they might not win the division after Watford beat them 1-0 last time out.
One of their best performers this season has been 21 year old versatile full back Max Aarons, who has played in 42 of their 43 games and established Premier Leagues have their eyes on the right sided player.
Well regarded transfer information journalist Fabrizio Romano has added to a tweet he made back in February regarding the future of Aarons, suggesting that Everton are now at an advanced stage of talks for his signature.

As the post suggests Everton may be leading the race, but they aren’t the only team interested as The Independent suggest that West Ham are also very interested in the player.
Norwich are set to be seeking £30 million for the player but may manager Daniel Farke also wish to keep him as they prepare for life back in the Premier League. Should he be sold, the funds would go someway to building a squad to survive more than a season this time around.
