Tottenham Hotspur managed to walk away from their match against bottom-placed Norwich with all three points this week. Fans would have been slightly nervous heading into the match’s closing quarter of an hour after Teemu Pukki equalised from the penalty spot in the 70th minute. Thankfully for Spurs fans, Son Heung-min was on hand to score the game-winning goal in the 79th.
But after the match, the Spurs fans were allured by the performance of Norwich’s, Max Aarons. Norwich’s right-back, who is valued at £13.5 million (as per Transfermarkt), played brilliantly well during the game, earning a 7.5/10 rating on WhoScored, the highest of any Norwich player on the day.
Tottenham have teetered with the idea of signing Aarons, but have recently ‘cooled their interest‘ after Jose Mourinho claimed he wanted a player with more physicality in the role. Despite this, Aarons’ performance had many Spurs fans demanding that their team bring him in. They think he would make a brilliant addition to the squad.

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

Don’t let Aurier’s superb performance deter you from the talent of Max Aarons #THFC

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

Would you replace Serge Aurier with Max Aarons?
What do we think?
With Mourinho keen on looking elsewhere, there is a good chance Spurs fans won’t see this dream signing happen. There is still a possibility that the Portuguese boss brings in an even better, more established, full-back. But until a player is photographed with the scarf around their neck, the fans won’t know what their right-back solution will end up being.
