A report from The Sunday Mirror (9/8; page 68) has claimed that Norwich City could let Max Aarons leave the club on loan – in news that may alert the likes of Aston Villa.
Aarons’s stock rose after the Canaries’ year in the Premier League. The 20-year-old was extremely impressive despite Daniel Farke’s men getting relegated.
The Sunday Mirror (9/8; page 68) reports that the Villans want Aarons, but they face competition from Bayern Munich for his signature.
Interestingly however, the report claims that the £20 million-rated star could be allowed to leave on loan. It is suggested that a loan may require an option to buy.
TBR View: Norwich’s reported stance looks surprising
It is a surprise that Norwich are willing to loan Aarons out for a year. Even if they agree an option to buy, there is no guarantee that they are going to receive a substantial sum next summer.
Aarons was a key player for the Canaries this past season. And the fans will surely be hoping that he can continue to play an important upon their return to the Championship.
For Villa, it is an incredibly exciting opportunity. Aarons looks to have enormous potential. And it would be a big boost if they could take him for a year without parting with a significant fee.
