West Ham United must rival Tottenham Hotspur’s efforts to sign Norwich City sensation Max Aarons in the summer, as The Mirror suggest Spurs will step up their efforts ahead of the next transfer window.

It is claimed that Tottenham currently lead the race for Aarons’ signature ahead of fellow London sides Arsenal and Chelsea, and have received regular and excellent scouting reports over his potential.

It has also been said before, in The Sun, that Spurs value the 19-year-old at close to £15million and even RB Leipzig have kept tabs on his development.

Aarons is currently having a stellar breakthrough season at Carrow Road, having only made his senior debut for the Canaries back in August when he faced Stevenage in the EFL Cup.

Since then, he quickly established himself as Daniel Farke’s first choice right-back, and has recorded a further 26 appearances in all competitions and each one has been in a starting role.

West Ham would be wise to rival Tottenham’s pursuit with one of their own, as the full-back has shown a wealth of talent defensively and going forward, which has contributed to seven goals.

With Pablo Zabaleta also out of contract at the London Stadium in the summer, Ryan Fredericks often injured and Michail Antonio far better in attack than at the back, snapping up the teenager should be high on Manuel Pellegrini’s priorities in the summer.
