Tottenham Hotspur reportedly want Max Aarons this summer, but two of their Premier League rivals are also interested.

According to a report from Sky Sports, Tottenham face competition from Crystal Palace and Manchester United for Max Aarons this summer.

Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly keen on the Norwich City starlet following a campaign in which Kieran Trippier struggled to recapture the form that saw him shine for club and country during the 2017/18 season.


However, Spurs are not the only team interested in signing Aarons this summer. Sky Sports reports that Manchester United and Palace both want the 19-year-old, with the Eagles planning a move should they end up selling £60 million-rated Aaron Wan-Bissaka during the coming months.

Tottenham need to act quickly

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly only planning to turn to Aarons if United's move for Wan-Bissaka fails, Spurs may want to act quickly if the Canaries prospect features high on Pochettino's shopping list.

Replacing Wan-Bissaka is going to be an incredibly difficult task for Palace if he does leave, but Aarons appears to have the potential and talent to fill the void, so it would be no surprise if Roy Hodgson's men acted swiftly if Wan-Bissaka looked to be Old Trafford-bound.

Similarly, Wan-Bissaka staying put would reportedly see Manchester United switch their attention to Aarons. So Spurs should perhaps look to put an end to the potential right-back Merry-Go-Round before it really gets going by looking to get a deal for Aarons across the line as soon as possible.
