So far this season, Aarons has highly impressed over his 32 Championship appearances for Daniel Farke’s side, with the right-back helping his side to keep 11 clean sheets, as well making an average of 0.9 interceptions, 0.7 tackles, 1.8 clearances and 1.3 key passes per game, culminating in an average SofaScore match rating of 6.94.
As a result of his impressive displays, it has been reported that a number of Premier League sides are interested in making a move for the £18 million-rated 21-year-old, and, speaking on a recent episode of the Here We Go podcast, Romano confirmed that Everton are one of the teams who will be attempting to sign the £5k per week star this summer.
He said: “Everton are now working to sign Max Aarons, they want a new right-back. He’s doing great work at Norwich and we are talking about potentially one of the future right-backs for England.
“Everton are working to sign him – they’re interested, they have a list and, on this list, Max Aarons is one of their favourites as a right-back. They are signing a new right-back [this] summer and let’s see if they can pay because Norwich are asking for around €35-40 million, so it’s not an easy situation.
“Manchester United [are] scouting him and interested in the situation but [there has been] no contact at the moment. Everton are pushing because they want the player, so, keep an eye on him because he will be one of the names of the summer.”

TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments regarding Max Aarons…
As such, if Romano is to be believed, it would very much seem as if Carlo Ancelotti’s side will be launching a bid for the Norwich youngster this summer, although, the journalist does question whether the club will be able to pay the Canaries’ asking price of €35-40 million (£30.3-34.6 million) for the defender.
However, considering how well Everton’s last signing from Norwich, Ben Godfrey, has worked out, with the defender being dubbed a revelation for the Toffees, it would seem as if there is a very clear path for Aarons to follow to Goodison Park.
