Norwich City right-back Max Aarons has been linked to Bayern Munich in one form or another for more than six months, but no announcement is imminent in this case per The Daily Mail.

Per the English publication, Norwich City sporting director Stuart Webber confirmed there was interest from “abroad”, but no move will happen until the summer:

Sports director Stuart Webber confirmed there was interest from abroad in Aarons last month but all parties believed any discussion over a transfer was best left until the end of the season. Bayern are looking to add depth to their defence with younger players. They have already agreed a deal with Red Bull Leipzig’s 22-year-old center-back Dayot Upamecano. And, as Sportsmail reported last month, they also have a pre-contract agreement in place with Reading left-back Omar Richards, also 22.

For Bayern Munich, Aarons would represent an interesting acquisition. While Benjamin Pavard has rediscovered his form of late, back-up Bouna Sarr has seemingly become persona non grata in Hansi Flick’s lineup.

Should the Bavarians make a move for Aarons, it can be assumed that Sarr will be sold at a discounted rate.
