Arsenal are ready to move for Max Aarons with the Norwich City defender set to cost £25m or more, according to the Sunday Mirror.
The Gunners are aware of the current situation at right-back, with Hector Bellerin increasingly looks like leaving in this window.
Inter Milan are currently the team showing keen interest in the Spaniard, while Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona had kept tabs in the past.
The Nerazzurri is considered the likely destination, quitting Arsenal in need of a suitable replacement.
The Gunners have Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares in their ranks, but Arteta looks for a star with different attributes than the pair.
Max Aarons is currently viewed to be that player, and he surely could fit the profile for the North London outfit.
At only 21-years-old, Max has good experience playing football in his country. He already has two EFL Championship titles and also a full Premier League campaign under his belt with Norwich before.
He played 45 times in the Championship last term, scoring twice and assisting five goals. The Englishman is considered one of the Canaries’ prized possessions and could be sold to raise funds this summer.
The club have withstood high profile interest in Max before. Barcelona and Manchester United have shown interest in the right-back previously.
But Max eventually stayed at Norwich City to see his development through. He may now be prepared for a move elsewhere.
