Soccer Link report that after a strong season, Max Aarons is attracting plenty of interest around the Premier League, including from Arsenal. The Gunners are looking at him as an ‘alternative’ to Hector Bellerin at right-back.

The report claims Everton pushed for a transfer last summer, whilst Manchester United looked at him as a backup for Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Jose Mourinho (whilst with Spurs) contacted the player personally over a move.

At the moment, it looks like Aarons might have his first season in Premier League football cut short by the current pandemic. While we wait for football to return, check out these betting account offers.

Before that, however, Aarons was a regular in the Norwich City side. He made 27 league appearances, playing 90 minutes in all-but-two of Norwich’s 29 games. He also played the full 120 minutes as his team knocked Spurs out of the FA Cup.

The right-back is a strong dribbler and passer, as well as solid defensively. He doesn’t have the strongest aerial presence, standing at around 5’8″, but that’s normal for full-backs. Given his age (20), he certainly has a lot of potential.
