Man Utd joined by West Ham in five-way Max Aarons transfer fight as Norwich demand £30m fee for full-backApril 23, 2021
WEST HAM have joined the fight for Max Aarons this summer and Norwich are willing to let the defender leave, according to reports.
Aarons, 21, has been a long-term target of Manchester United and it now appears he is on the radar of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Tottenham.
West Ham and United will have to pay £30million to land the England U21 international, claim The Independent.
The Canaries persuaded him to stay last summer but a promise the club made means Aarons has now been told he can leave.
But it is The Irons who could hold the advantage in the transfer battle, as Aarons is reportedly keen to stay in the south.
That could rule out a move abroad or to United, and West Ham may have the added appeal of European football to offer next year.
The Hammers are currently level on points with fourth-placed Chelsea.
Aarons has just three seasons as a senior professional under his belt but he has had a successful start to his career.
He has two promotions with Norwich and clearly has a very bright future ahead of him, given the interest.
Aarons has been ever-present under Daniel Farke, missing just eight league games since he first came into the side in 2018.

West Ham signing Aarons could depend on how much money owners David Gold and David Sullivan are willing to spend.
Valdimir Coufal has proved a shrewd addition but the extra money from Champions League qualification could make Aarons an option.
But with United and others interested there promises to be future twists in this transfer saga.
