Arsenal have supposedly been priced out of a move for Norwich City key man Max Aarons, who is believed to be valued at £30m.
The 20-year-old full-back has emerged as a highly sought-after prospect following a stunning season with the Canaries, and Aarons is believed to have garnered interest from several teams from the Premier League.
Fierce North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are both believed to be in the race for the defender, however, it appears that the latter will struggle to secure a contract for Aarons in the current financial climate.
According to Goal, Norwich will hold out for a £30m fee even if they be relegated from the Premier League a figure which the Gunners are unlikely to hand over.
As the coronavirus pandemic brings with it serious financial implications for teams across the globe, the Gunners are supposedly turning their attention to swaps and part-exchange deals to combat a significantly reduced budget.
Aarons still has four years left on his current contract with Norwich City and it will be tough for the Gunners to lure him away from Norwich if they manage to somehow remain in the Premier League.
