Arsenal and Chelsea have joined Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Norwich City defender Max Aarons, according to the Mirror.
Spurs made contact with Norwich in January over the possibility of signing the 19-year-old and then loaning him back for the rest of the season.
But the Championship club, who value the right-back at £15million, stood firm and see Aarons as a key player as they prepare for a final push for promotion to the Premier League.
The former Luton Town player signed a new long-term contract in October to keep him in Norfolk until 2023, but the Canaries know that he is likely to attract plenty of interest in the summer.
Aarons – who made his league debut in the East Anglian derby in September – has earned rave reviews this term, despite only having a total of 27 senior appearances to his name.
With pace, trickery and a willingness to push forward, he is the archetypal modern full-back and has been a vital member of a Norwich side flying in the Championship – registering two goals and four assists.
Aarons signed from Luton Town’s academy in 2016, and was handed his senior debut away at Cardiff City in the Carabao Cup in August, with the youngster scoring Norwich’s third goal.
As Serge Aurier and Kieran Tripper both struggle for consistency this term, it could be a position that the North London club look to strengthen come the summer.
