Jose Mourinho has got Tottenham Hotspur fans dreaming of major silverware for the first time since 2008. 

In the League Cup final, Europa League last-32, FA Cup and just seven points off leaders Manchester United – but with a game in hand, Spurs are competing on various fronts.

Now, as well as closing the gap on the Red Devils, the North London side could also be preparing to beat the Old Trafford club to a hotly admired transfer target.

It’s not often that a 20-year-old Norwich player, recovering from relegation out of the top division, looks set to join Catalan-giants Barcelona, but that was the scene all summer.

Right-back Max Aarons, according to The Guardian, was in serious contention to make the switch to the five-time Champions League winners before they instead elected to sign American Sergino Dest.

However, the flying full-back might now get his big-money move, though, with Spurs reportedly preparing to pay £20m to bring the youngster back to his city of birth, according to Manchester Evening News.

Aarons suffered relegation from the Premier League in the 2019/20 season.

The now-21-year-old has made over 100 senior appearances for The Canaries, but the report claims that Spurs, Manchester United and Everton are all interested, with Norwich potentially having to continue their EFL Championship promotion charge without him.

Daniel Farke’s side currently sit top of the second-tier, chasing their second promotion in three seasons.

Aarons, who can play on both flanks of the defence, made 36 appearances in the Premier League last term – collecting six clean sheets.

A product of Luton Town’s academy, the England Under-21 international clearly has a big future ahead of him and although he’ll have been disappointed to miss out on a move to one of the world’s biggest clubs, a triumphant return to the Premier League could soon be on the cards.
