Aarons impressing with Norwich
Max Aarons is a product of Norwich City’s youth system.
Despite being just 21, the full-back has already notched over a century of appearances for the Canaries’ senior side.
Aarons was one of the few bright sparks for Norwich during their less than stellar 2019/20 Premier League campaign, and has since shone this season, too, as Daniel Farke’s men edge closer to a swift return to the English top-flight.
Such fine form, coupled with his age and the fact that he is English, in turn, has made Aarons something of a man in demand.

Everton looking at Aarons
In more recent times, though, it is another Premier League outfit who have been most heavily linked with a move for the stopper.
That side has been Everton, with the Toffees said to be targeting a new right-back in the summer:
Everton want Max Aarons and they’re working on it, confirmed. 🔵 #EFC
Manchester United have scouted him and they’ll decide in the coming months. Bayern Münich after opening talks with Norwich are *not* convinced to pay €35m for him, as @cfbayern reported. 🔴 https://t.co/phsV5Opcb8

Now, on Wednesday, a fresh update concerning Everton’s pursuit of Aarons has been provided by The Times.
It is claimed that the Merseysiders have indeed identified the youngster as an option at right-back. However, Everton will look to haggle down his asking price, which The Times claim is set at £30m.
Everton believe that Aaron could have a similar impact to Ben Godfrey, who they of course signed from Norwich last year.
