Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for Max Aarons last year but ended up bringing in Takehiro Tomiyasu.

The club, of course, are now having to rely on Cedric in that position due to Tomiyasu’s dodgy calves that have been a problem since February and an upgrade in second choice would go down well with Arsenal fans.

How much, then, would Aarons want to come to a club where he is not guaranteed to be first choice?

Aarons, who now has two years left on his contract, was valued at around £25m last year.

He stayed loyal to the Canaries, but with relegation looming, it seems like he could move this summer.

In addition to Arsenal and United, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are said to be keen.

Aarons, 22, has one assist in 29 games this season.
