Everton working hard on signing a right-back Bayern and Barca couldn't last summer

Backed by the recent bureaucratic approval of their plans for the new 52,888 capacity stadium, Everton is looking to push on in the transfer market. Securing a player wanted by both Barcelona and Bayern Munich only a summer ago.

Max Aarons is regarded as one of the top prospects on the right-back position. Barca was looking to sign him last summer but was priced away and had to settle for Sergino Dest. While the Bavarians didn't want to pay Norwich's demands and in the end brought in Bouna Sarr as a backup to Benjamin Pavard.

But Everton can offer the money Barca can't, and the playing time possibility that Aarons wouldn't get at the Allianz Arena. Aarons, 21, has already played 34 games for the Championship club this season and The Canaries are flying high on the table, first with seven points clear of the second team.

Yet, Aarons won't be an easy purchase even for the Premier League side. Norwich are asking between €35,000,000 and €40,000,000 for their young prodigy, depending on the structure of the payment. As club recently extended the contract of their left-back Lucas Digne, it clearly shows the ambition of the Toffees.

Recently, even the world-class manager Carlo Ancelotti stated he wants to stay at the club until the stadium is built in 2024.

Aarons started playing in his youth days for Luton Town before making a switch to Norwich in 2016. He played 36 Premier League games for the club in the last season when they were relegated. Prior to it, he won the promotion from the Championship with 41 games in the 2018/2019 season. In 2019 he was named the Young Player of the Year of Championship, League One and League Two.

The 178 centimetres tall player represented the U21 side of England nine times already too.
