Tottenham are stepping up their bid to sign Norwich City defender Max Aarons, Football Insider has learned.
The Premier League big hitters have made Aarons, 20, one of their leading targets to fill what has become a problem position at right-back.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that a club representative has been calling the Norwich man’s camp “every day” to convince him to swap east Anglia for north London this month.
Spurs’ recruitment team have identified Aarons as having the profile and pedigree to play for an elite Premier League team.
The super-quick full-back, who is renowned for his forward raids and overlaps, has been watched closely over the last two seasons.
He was a key player in Norwich’s Championship promotion campaign last season and has played the full 90 minutes in 20 of their 22 Premier League matches this term.
Tottenham’s pursuit of the England Under-21 international comes as they prepare to offload their 22-year-old right-back Kyle Walker.
As revealed by Football Insider early this morning, the White Hart Lane academy product is holding talks this week with Crystal Palace and Southampton managers Roy Hodgson and Ralph Hasenhuttl.
Aarons signed a new five-year Norwich contract last July but his long-term future at the club is in some doubt.
Daniel Farke’s side are bottom of the Premier League, six points adrift of Bournemouth in 19th spot.
