Arsenal rival Man Utd for Max Aarons switch
Arsenal are reportedly ready to compete with Manchester United for transferring right-back Max Aarons from Norwich City if Hector Bellerin is eliminated this summer.
The Gunners face some uncertainty about Bellerin as the Spanish international appears to be aiming for a new challenge outside the Emirates Stadium with Paris Saint-Germain among his applicants, according to CBS Sports.
They add that Arsenal see Norwich starlet Aarons as an option for Bellerin and many fans might see this as an upgrade.
Aarons looks like a great talent, while Bellerin’s performances may have been on the decline lately, as many angry Gooners criticized his performance in the weekend Manchester City loss.
Man Utd has also recently been linked to Aarons. The video below reports that Norwich would likely ask for £ 30 million to sell it …

The joint majority shareholder of Norwich, Delia Smith, recently made no secret of the fact that the Canaries had not expected to hold Aarons for long.
She admits the 21-year-old has a great future in the game but that it won’t be on Carrow Road.
“Max Aarons is one of the best. He will be one of the best footballers and it won’t be in Norwich, “Smith was quoted as saying by Goal.
“He knows that, we know that. But we had no problem with Max or his parents on this special occasion and this special business.

“Of course we’re going to lose him, but that’s part of our plan.”
This is welcome news for United and Arsenal as they are following the young right-back this summer.
While AFC may have to consider replacing Bellerin, it makes sense that United see Aarons as a better option than Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who is a solid defensive full-back but is not offering enough going forward.
