“Don’t ever really listen to it”: Norwich City Ace Is Correct About Not Concentrating On Interest From PL Teams

Norwich City have scripted a stunning turnaround of fortune this season despite a dismal start and are now second in the Championship standings. The Canaries, under Daniel Farke, have exhibited a breathtaking brand of football this season. A few of their youngsters stepped up big time in this chase for automatic promotion.

Max Aarons, the 19-year-old right-back, has been a revelation this term and is now drawing interest from Premier League big boys including Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur (as reported by the TEAMtalk). But the player is unfazed by the rumours and solely concentrating on season objectives over his future.

“That stuff just gets taken care of, I don’t ever buy into any of that, I don’t ever really listen to it, I don’t ever really look at it.”

Stated Aarons in a recent interview with the club correspondent David Freezer (via The Pink Un).

2018-19 has been a breakthrough campaign for the teenager who made his senior debut back in September and then went on to make 35 appearances till date for the league leaders. He has found the net thrice and registered five assists showcasing his intent in the attacking half of the pitch.

Although Aarons’ aerial presence and crossing traits could still be improved, the player holds all the attributes of a modern-day fullback. He loves to dribble, make overlapping runs and play his part in the attacking build-ups.

Predominantly a right-back, the England U19 international is also capable of operating down the left-hand side. This might attract Manchester City as despite having a star-studded squad, they require reinforcements in the left-back role due to the growing uncertainty over Benjamin Mendy’s fitness. Pep Guardiola has utilised Oleksandr Zinchenko as a makeshift left-back but must look to resolve the issue permanently.

Aarons, meanwhile, should weigh up all the options before deciding his future and consider a move only if minutes are assured elsewhere. He needs enough game-time week in week out to improve his game, and the possible promotion with Norwich would hand him the same at the top flight of the English football.

A move to Spurs would see him competing with Kieran Trippier, Serge Aurier, Ben Davies and Danny Rose for a first-team status which, in turn, might lead to uncertainty over playing minutes even though Mauricio Pochettino is highly admired for promoting the youth players.

Aarons penned a new deal back in October extending his stay at Carrow Road until summer 2023. He, therefore, must keep his head down and concentrate on flourishing further under Farke who has been instrumental behind the youngster’s uprise.
