Norwich City appears destined for relegation to the championship, and if the Canary side find themselves once again in the second tier, they may have a hand when it comes to offloading right-back Max Aarons.
This is according to a recent report from the sunwho claims the young full-back is wanted by as many as four major European teams, including Premier League duo Manchester United and Arsenal.
In addition to the two English clubs, Bayern Munich and rival Borussia Dortmund are also understood to be big fans of the defender.

Aarons, 22, has enjoyed another great season. Although his side is on the verge of relegation, Aarons, who has made 28 league appearances, has always remained positive.
However, with only two years left on his deal, this summer employers will likely see them leave with little choice but to make money.
While discussing Aarons’ long-term future at the FT’s summit last year, Norwich City’s majority owner Delia Smith admitted the club expects to lose the 22-year-old.
“Fortunately, because of this wonderful team behind the scenes,” Smith told the guests (as quoted by pink on).
“We have some really great players. They have a nice temper and Max Aarons is one of the best. He will be one of the best footballers and he will not be in Norwich.
“He knows it, we know it. But we’ve never had a problem with Max or his parents on this particular occasion and this particular deal. Obviously we’re going to lose him, but that’s part of our plan.”
Since joining the Canary Youth Academy from Luton Town in 2016, Aarons has gone on to make 159 first-team appearances, across all competitions, directly contributing to 19 goals along the way.
