According to a recent print edition of the Irish Sunday Mirror (19/07, p67), Wolverhampton Wanderers are eyeing a summer move for Norwich City left-back Max Aarons. The same source has also stated that Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo considers the English youngster as ‘a valuable addition to his squad’ before the start of the new campaign with the Canaries rating him at around £20m.
Aarons’ Impressive Campaign At Carrow Road
Aarons has enjoyed a solid season at Carrow Road after producing several eye-catching performances on the left side of Daniel Farke’s backline. He has featured in 39 matches for the Norfolk outfit this term, picking up two assists and seven yellow cards across all competitions.
The 20-year-old has proven himself to be a useful player in Farke’s squad as evidenced by his average 1.3 tackles, 1.0 interceptions, 2.0 clearances, 0.7 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per game in the Premier League this season (stats via whoscored).
The promising full-back has also represented England at various youth levels, but is yet to make an appearance for Gareth Southgate’s senior team. Maybe a summer move to the Molineux Stadium could give him a more prominent platform to showcase his worth and stake a claim for a spot in the Three Lions’ senior squad for next summer’s UEFA European Championship finals.
What Will The English Left-Back Add To Nuno Espirito Santo’s Team?
Aarons can use his pace and agility to make some darting runs down the left flank. He is a capable defender at the back and hardly gets beaten in a 1v1 footrace out on the wide areas. The English defender is also not shy of working hard for his team which makes him such a valuable member of Daniel Farke’s squad.
Nuno Espirito Santo has often relied on Jonny Otto and Ruben Vinagre to fill in as a left wing-back this season. Hence, he will benefit from adding more competition for the duo at the Molineux Stadium next season. Aarons could prove to be a great fit for Wolves if he is available for the right price this summer. The talented whizkid will not only add more pace and variety to the Wolves squad, but also increase competition for places within their team. Plus, Nuno Santo could be the ideal man to oversee the Norwich left-back’s development if he can secure his services this summer.
At 20, Aarons’ ceiling is sky-high, so it makes sense for the West Midlands side to orchestrate a move for him when the transfer window reopens later this month. He will mainly be a useful addition if Wolves can end up securing European football for next season as they will need a strong squad to challenge across multiple competitions.
