Everton are looking to add more attacking impetus down their right flank with the acquisition of Norwich City’s Max Aarons, according to Premier League Central sources.
The Merseysiders are coming off the back of a historic win over bitter city rivals Liverpool as Carlo Ancelotti guided the Toffees to a 2-0 win over Jurgen Klopp’s men at Anfield on Saturday evening.
One issue that the Blues have had this season is finding the same creativity from right fullback that Lucas Digne has provided down the left flank.
Trusted sources close to Premier League Central now report that Max Aarons is a target for Ancelotti. The Italian manager will need to move quickly to ensure his side doesn’t miss out as Bayern have already made contact with Norwich while Man Utd are also interested.
A move to Goodison Park makes a lot of sense for Aarons as it means he wouldn’t need to emigrate to Germany and having already impressed in the Premier League, he’d need very little time to adjust to the league.
A move to the Bundesliga, while attractive and accompanied by the prospect of Champions League football, comes with more obstacles and challenges.
Aarons’ contract with Norwich City runs until June 30th, 2024 so Everton won’t be able to get him on the cheap especially seeing as the Canaries seem fated to achieve immediate promotion back to the Premier League after they finished bottom of the table last season.
