A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Max Aarons’s display in Norwich City’s draw with Arsenal on Sunday – amid reports from earlier this season that talks had already begun over a potential move for the right-back.
The Telegraph reported back in October that Spurs and Norwich had already started discussing a potential move for the youngster. And Daniel Farke had seemingly opened the door for the 19-year-old to leave by admitting that he could not stand in a player’s way if a big club comes calling.
Of course, there has since been a big change at Tottenham. Mauricio Pochettino has been replaced by Jose Mourinho, and it appears that the Portuguese is not planning to make big changes in the market.
The Sun reported over the weekend that Mourinho has told his players that he is not going to make any signings for the time-being.
But it seems that plenty of Spurs fans are hoping that that stance changes in the near future.
Several Tottenham supporters have taken to social media to laud Aarons’s performance at Carrow Road as the Canaries drew 2-2 with the Gunners.
Remarkably, Whoscored.com shows that no player had more attempts on goal than Aarons. And interestingly, he put two of his three attempts on target – which is the same number Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang managed, which certainly tells you something about Aarons’s attacking intent.
Here is how some of the Tottenham fans reacted to Aarons’s performance at the weekend…

Max Aarons makes such good runs, he’s so dangerous going forward. Spurs need him or Atal as our future RB ?
