'Ideal signing': Tottenham fans react to links with Norwich's Max Aarons

Tottenham Hotspur fans arrive prior to the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Everton FC at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on May 12, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.

Max Aarons is reportedly a target for Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs after establishing himself in the Premier League with Norwich City.

Tottenham Hotspur fans appear to have been split into two camps as The Mail breathe fresh life into the Max Aarons rumours.

One faction is absolutely convinced that the 19-year-old Norwich City flyer is exactly what they need with a new, long-term right-back understood to be right at the top of Mauricio Pochettino’s January wish list.

The others, however, have a nagging feeling that the chance has gone already. Spurs were linked with a £20 million move for Aarons in the summer, via The Mail, but the teenager has since signed a new five-year contract with Norwich while establishing himself in the Premier League.

As a result, his price tag will have skyrocketed in the last few months and we all know that chairman Daniel Levy prefers a bargain to a money-spinning splurge.

According to reports, Aarons is one of the players Pochettino has identified as an ideal January signing with the manager hoping to add some youth and a fresh dash of energy to a squad which appears to have grown rather stale since the turn of the year.

Aarons, young, talented and blessed with remarkable pace, certainly fits the bill. But Tottenham fans have seen far too many transfer targets slip through the net to get overly confident at this early stage.
