Max Aarons has been a welcome addition to Norwich City’s first-team squad of late.
The full-back only made his senior Canaries debut in an EFL Cup clash against Stevenage in August but has emerged as a key player for Daniel Farke ever since.
Aarons has now started seven Championship games at the age of just 18, keeping Ivo Pinto out of the team while establishing himself as Norwich’s first choice right-back.
Somewhat inevitably, Aarons’ performances have attracted interest from elsewhere. According to the Mirror (11 October, page 57), Premier League clubs Chelsea and Arsenal are keen to sign the England U19 international.
That does not mean Aarons’ time at Carrow Road is up. The Mirror adds that the teenager is set to sign a new deal to remain in East Anglia.
This should be a major coup for a Norwich side who have given a chance to young players in recent weeks. Jamal Lewis has been a regular on the left of defence, while the skilful Todd Cantwell has also made a positive impression.
