Manchester United are reportedly keeping a close eye on many right-backs across the Europe.
The latest reports in England suggest that Manchester United are eyeing move for Norwich City right-back Max Aarons.
The 20-year-old right-back has played all his life at Norwich. He has made his way through the youth system at the English club and made his senior debut in 2018.
In 105 appearances for Norwich, Max Aarons has managed to score 4 goals, and create 11 goals for his teammates.
The 20-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England.
Aarons has represented England at Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 14 caps.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
United have earmarked Norwich right-back Aarons as their target, with Ole Gunnar Solskjær being a ‘huge admirer’ of the player.
The England international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Solskjær wants to target in the winter transfer window.
Manchester United are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.
Max Aarons is a skilled right-back who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch. His arrival would give United some much needed tactical flexibility.
According to the report, “Manchester United are tracking Norwich City fullback Max Aarons. The Mirror says United are watching Aarons. They are keen to strengthen their full back options and are keeping close tabs on the 20-year-old who also attracted interest from Barcelona last summer. Aarons is regarded as one of English football’s best young prospects, he did well last season despite Norwich being relegated from the Premier League. This season has also seen the England under-21 international shine in their promising start to the Championship campaign as they look to go straight back up to the top flight.”

Manchester United will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Norwich to the negotiating table. United have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.
Norwich City are preparing to sell their right-back should they receive a massive offer for him.
Max Aarons is also being watched by Everton.
Good signing for Manchester United?
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
Aarons is still quite young and he will only get better with experience. He would be a good long term investment for Manchester United. If he turns out to be a star like many expect, it could be one of the club’s smartest transfers.
The 20-year-old has all the skillset required to be a success story at Manchester United. Therefore, it makes sense for Solskjær to step up his attempts to bring the England right-back to Premier League side.
It will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds in the next few weeks.
