Sources: Tottenham make approach to sign Aarons as 'gentleman's agreement' over transfer revealed
Tottenham have registered their interest in signing Norwich City right-back Max Aarons this summer, Football Insider.
The London giants have made previous moves for the 21-year-old but were unable to convince Norwich to sell.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider the club have reignited their pursuit of Aarons after making a new right-back one of their main priorities this summer.
Encouragingly for Spurs and other suitors, Norwich are willing to let Aarons go in the upcoming window if their £30million asking price is met.
Daniel Farke’s side have just clinched their second Championship title in three seasons while securing an instant return to the Premier League.
But Norwich had a “gentleman’s agreement” with Aarons last summer that he could leave this year if he gave them one more season.
