Spurs edging closer in their efforts to land defender ahead of fixing the right back.


Spurs are keen to secure the services of Max Aarons ahead of the January transfer window.

As known to everybody, there are just a few days left for the transfer window to close and clubs are rushing to complete their business in the days left.

Lilywhites have completed one signing so far. Gedson Fernandes of Benfica, arriving on an 18-month loan deal. But Jose Mourinho is on the lookout to further strengthen his squad in the closing days of the window.

Spurs are edging closer towards one of the top targets from Norwich City, Max Aarons. He is strongly linked with a move away in the January transfer window. The interested clubs include the likes of Tottenham, Arsenal and West Ham.

The attacking line is the one that has been highlighted, especially after Harry Kane’s injury. However, there’s another area that the Lilywhites need to focus on is the right-back position after the summer sale of Kieran Trippier.

Tottenham star defender, Serge Aurier has witnessed an upturn in form since Jose Mourinho has taken over. It has been reported that Kyle Walker-Peters is close to the exit.

Max Aarons is one of the names that stood out as potential incoming. The defender is linked with a move to Spurs for quite some time. He continues attracting Tottenham, having already been in the wanted list after impressing in the Canaries’ promotion-winning last season.

The Norwich City defender was one of Norwich’s stand out performer during their 2-1 defeat to Spurs on Wednesday. He has also reportedly indicated that he is keen on joining Tottenham.

Jose Mourinho alike his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino is a fan of Aarons. The club is closely monitoring his progress in the top flight and is hoping for a move this month.

Bundesliga side joins the race.

Borussia Dortmund have joined the race lately to sign Aarons. Other than Dortmund, RB Leipzig is another potential German clubs looking for Norwich defender.

Potential suitors from Premier League also entered the race including the likes of Spurs’ north London rivals Arsenal, West Ham, and Everton

Author’s take:

The canaries are not in favour of letting Aarons go this month and a deal is more likely to be struck in the summer. Whereas, it will take around £30m to tempt the Canaries to sell Aarons.
