Bayern Munich was linked to a move for Norwich City full-back Max Aarons as the German champions enter the chase for the England U21 international.

The 20-year-old has been on the radar of a host of top clubs having impressed Carrow Road despite his relegation from the Premier League this season. He was also a key component of the team which earned the last promotion campaign.

The defender born in Hammersmith was linked to a return to London, with Arsenal and Tottenham arch-rivals both interested in the youth, but Sportsmail understands that the interest of Spurs has cooled late.

However, according to Sky Sports Austria, Bayern officials are thinking up a bid for Aarons as the German champions aim to strengthen their squad.

Benjamin Pavard has nailed a starting spot on the right back, but Hans-Dieter Flick is looking for a suitable backup choice and, given his young age, Aarons will then be able to develop into that position.

The report goes on to suggest that Bayern could table an £18 m move for the youngster, though if the Canaries had secured Premier League survival the asking price could have been as much as £27 m.
