As per Sky Sports reporter Fabrizio Romano, Norwich City’s star right-back Max Aarons “will leave” this summer, with Everton said to be leading the chase.

Ever since breaking into the first-team, Aarons has thoroughly impressed for the Canaries. He has continued to star for Daniel Farke’s side this season in their successful bid for promotion.

Unsurprisingly, his performances have caught attention from elsewhere along the way. Manchester United, Spurs and West Ham have all been linked this season, while German giants Bayern Munich and Catalan titans FC Barcelona have also been said keen.
