Frank McAvennie has exclusively told Football FanCast that he doesn’t expect West Ham to sign a deal for Norwich’s Max Aarons this summer.
The talented right-back has been on the radar of some European clubs for some time after his emergence from the Canary Islands academy, most notably at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Tottenham also love the 21-year-old, although reports suggest the Hammers have become surprise contenders for Aarons signing – Norwich demanding £ 30million for his services.
Would Max Aarons be a good signing for West Ham?
Aarons has made great strides at Carrow Road over the past three seasons, already totaling over 120 appearances, and has previous Premier League experience.
But with Vladimir Coufal and Ryan Fredericks in their ranks, McAvennie would be surprised to see West Ham bring back another right-back, especially for such a hefty price tag.
He said Football FanCast:
“I don’t know if they are going to sell the boy, but £ 30million for someone in the league is a bit expensive because he might not do it in the Premier League.
“I don’t know if West Ham would want him because they have Coufal, and Fredericks and Boy Johnson can jump in as well.
“So it’s weird, they’re not going to give up Coufal, he’s been a wonderful signing so I don’t understand why they would pay £ 30million to have him sit on the bench.”
