Norwich right-back Max Aarons has been “told he can leave” Carrow Road this summer if a team matches his asking price, according to the Independent.
The newspaper claims that the Canaries will want at least £30m for the 21-year-old, with the player said to be keen on staying in the south of England.
It means Arsenal, West Ham and Tottenham will be the three favourites to sign Aarons, ahead of the likes of Manchester United, Everton, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, who have also been keeping tabs on the fullback.
Back in February, it was reported that the Gunners had added the England Under 21 international to a shortlist of targets as they line up a replacement for Hector Bellerin, who looks poised to leave the Emirates in the summer.
Brighton’s Tariq Lamptey was also a name being considered but the former Chelsea player’s injury problems mean that Aarons would be the safer bet.
