A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to express their hope that the club will look to sign Max Aarons at some stage in the future after his performance against Spurs on Wednesday.
Jose Mourinho’s men had to battle hard to earn the three points against the Canaries. Dele Alli broke the deadlock before Son Heung-min bagged a late winner after Teemu Pukki had equalised from the spot.
The decision to award the penalty came after Aarons appeared to be clipped by Ryan Sessegnon as he surged into the box.
And it was a strong performance from the youngster overall as Norwich threatened to take an important share of the points.
As shown by Whoscored.com, Aarons completed four successful dribbles and made three successful challenges.
Giovani Lo Celso was the only player on the pitch to dribble more, while the Spaniard was also the only Tottenham player to win more tackles than the 20-year-old.
Aarons is a player that Spurs appear to be well aware of. The Daily Mail reported this week that Jose Mourinho is an admirer of the youngster.
It was suggested by the Mail that Tottenham had actually cooled their interest in Aarons as Mourinho wants a more physically-dominant option at right-back.
But it appears that some Spurs fans hope that the boss changes his mind.
Some have taken to social media to praise the starlet’s performance at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Plenty felt that Serge Aurier was very good against Daniel Farke’s side, but they were still impressed by Aarons’s display.
And they have suggested that it would be a big mistake if Tottenham allowed Aarons to move anywhere else in one of the coming windows.
Here is what some of the supporters made of the prospect’s display…
Don’t let Aurier’s superb performance deter you from the talent of Max Aarons #THFC

Lo celso excellent on the ball (although no positonal sense off the ball in cdm/cm role), aurier excellent, sessegnon looked like a kid lost, son was horrific despite the winner (and has been for a month or so now), cantwell and aarons are absolute ballers. Massive 3 points #COYS

Aurier has improved in recent weeks but I really hope we go after Max Aarons, exactly the type of player we need!

I rate Max Aarons a lot.

If Levy is a smart football-oriented chairman, which he’s definitely NOT, he would raid this Norwich team.
Cantwell, Jamal Lewis, Max Aarons and Pukki should be in our radar. #COYS

Aurier has looked class in that advanced right back role in recent games picking up another assist tonight but once again Max Aarons was quality for Norwich once again. No doubt won’t be there next summer and I really hope we go in for him because he’s got a huge future

Max Aarons was pretty good again! They need to lock him in the dressing room and only let him out when he signs for Spurs! #SpursNorwich
