Norwich City fullback Max Aarons isn’t surprised that his name has been circulating in the transfer rumour mill this summer. The 20-year-old defender has been one of the highlights for Norwich in a season where they have finished at the bottom of the Premier League, relegating after just one season to the Championship.
With the Canaries relegating from the Premier League, it seems inevitable for the club to lose one or more of their best players. Aarons is considered a leading player for the club and has already attracted the interest of clubs like Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur. Aarons says he is putting little attention to the rumours and only focuses on his football.
Aarons told The Athletic: “It’s kind of natural that, as a 20-year-old playing in the Premier League, there will be things out there in the press. I just leave that to the people off the pitch, like Stuart [Webber, Norwich sporting director] or the club to deal with. I’ve just tried to focus on finishing the season well in myself and now going away, relaxing over the weeks we have off, and then coming in strong for pre-season.”
“Anything else that happens or takes place, it’s not really in my hands. All I can do as a professional footballer is try to develop my game and come back sharp, come back strong and come back ready for a big season. I’ve got four years left on my contract here, so I’ll be coming back ready to go, ready to attack next year.”
