“He (Aarons) was linked with Barcelona last year.
“It would be a good move for Max Aarons I would say.
“You’re looking at a player behind Seamus Coleman he’s probably likely to play his fair share of games or he’ll have a real chance of playing his fair share of games.
“If he goes to a big side, a really, really big side, one of the top two or three he sits on the bench and that’s not beneficial to him.
“Yes, it could be a good move for both, I would say.”
Aarons’ Rich Vein Of Form At Carrow Road This Season
The London-born right-back is having an impressive season with the Canaries after putting in quite a few eye-catching displays on the right side of Daniel Farke’s defence. Aarons has registered one goal and four assists in 43 matches for the Norfolk club this term across multiple competitions.
The 21-year-old has caught the eye by averaging 0.7 tackles, 0.9 interceptions, 1.8 clearances, 0.6 shots, 1.4 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per 90 minutes in the EFL Championship. He has even been excellent when distributing possession from the right flank, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 83.8% in the English second division (stats via whoscored).
The way Aarons has been playing this season, it is no wonder that Mills believes that the Canaries starlet is ready to take the next step in his career by joining a club like Everton where he will be able to train under a world-class manager like Carlo Ancelotti.
Should The Toffees Bring Aarons To Goodison Park This Summer?
Aarons is a quick and agile presence down the right-wing and can make some driving sprints with the ball in the opposition half. He has also shown that he can create a few inviting chances for his teammates in the final third. Hence, he would bring more balance and creativity to Ancelotti’s squad if the Italian tactician decides to get him on board in the summer.
The English defensive ace is not shy of going the extra mile for his side and has transformed himself into a capable defender at the back. He is usually quick to react to the danger and can pull off some essential interceptions inside his half.
Plus, he can clear his lines when required but is also not afraid to play his way out from the defensive end of the pitch. We can expect him to fit in well in Ancelotti’s defence as he has all the skillset needed to be a success story at Merseyside in the coming seasons. All in all, the Toffees would be wise to listen to Mills’ advice by bringing Aarons to the northwest of England during this summer transfer window.
