Bayern Munich stepping up their pursuit of Norwich City right back Max Aarons as Bundesliga giants look to strike a deal in the summer with Manchester United and Barcelona also known admirers
- Bayern Munich want to step up interest in Norwich City defender Max Aarons
- The 21-year-old has been linked with Barcelona and Manchester United in past
- Bayern remained in contact over two seasons and want to sign him in summer
Bayern Munich are stepping up their pursuit of Norwich City right back Max Aarons.
The 21-year old saw a move to Barcelona fall through last summer and is on the radar of Manchester United but Bayern have remained in contact over the past two seasons and are keen to sign him this summer.
Aarons, under contract until 2024, has continued to build a reputation as one of the best right backs in the country despite being in the Championship this season and has been instrumental in Norwich pushing for promotion once again.
Bayern Munich are ready to step up their pursuit of Norwich City right-back Max Aarons
Sports director Stuart Webber confirmed there was interest from abroad in Aarons last month but all parties believed any discussion over a transfer was best left until the end of the season.
Bayern are looking to add depth to their defence with younger players. They have already agreed a deal with Red Bull Leipzig’s 22-year old centre back Dayot Upamecano.
And, as Sportsmail reported last month, they also have a pre contract agreement in place with Reading left-back Omar Richards, also 22.
Highly-rated 21-year-old is also on Manchester United’s radar and was linked with Barcelona
Aarons was one of three players, along with Emi Buendia and Todd Cantwell, that the Canaries were eager to hold onto in January as they continue their push to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
They beat Stoke City 4-1 on Saturday for their first win in four games to keep them at the top of the Championship, a point above Brentford who suffered a shock defeat to Barnsley on Sunday.
