Arsenal battling with Tottenham for the signature of Premier League star

Arsenal is interested in signing Norwich City’s Max Aarons ahead of the next transfer window, reports Goal.

Aarons was the EFL Young Player of the Year last season as he helped the Canaries gain promotion back into the Premier League.

He has continued his fine run of form for Daniel Farke’s side and although his team is struggling, he has attracted the attention of Arsenal and other teams for his performances.

Goal.com, however, claims that the Gunners are facing competition from Tottenham for his signature and that competition could price Arsenal out of a move for him.

The same report reckons that the Canaries want £30m for the young defender and that even if they get relegated, they might still demand a huge fee for his signature which won’t be ideal for Arsenal considering their present financial situation.

The Gunners have a limited transfer budget, fortunately, they can still land a right-back for free.

This is because the Gunners can offer a contract to Cedric Soares who joined them on loan in the last transfer window.

The Portuguese defender will be out of a contract when his loan deal expires and the Gunners could simply offer him a new contract to remain with them with no transfer fee paid.

    Must signing, if we want to go back to champions league football, 1000 % better than Bellerin, great long term investment.

      Very good going forward but not so clever defensively.In my opinion Nathan Ferguson of WBA is every bit as good as Aarons and would cost less.

        Hadn’t heard of this lad, grandad. Looks very good indeed, although I’m not sure he’d be cheaper as WBA look to be going up and are big enough to have a bit of pulling power…

        Osei-tutu’s performances are complicating things a little though. I don’t really feel he’s good enough (at least as a RB) but you have to give him a shot… I’d imagine with Cedric available on a free, O-T coming back and a budget tighter than a duck’s rim, Arteta and co will be leaving this position alone.

    Our board at times proves to be a let down🤔🤔🤔..fantastic players scouted but another lowly team simply out price us..
    This season we linked to good names but the rumours do fade away stealthily like a misty fog.
    Our opponents are already up and moving and if the board is no gonna make this talks come to fruition and beef the depth of our squad up, then we should be in for a rough season.
    This guy be signed.
