Max Aarons highlights reel

Despite Norwich City going down last season after just a year in the Premier League, Max Aaron gave a good account of himself. Primarily a right-back, the young defender is also capable of playing as a left-back. The defender made 36 appearances in England’s top flight last season, registering two assists. The youngster has the potential to develop into a world-class full-back in the future. His searing pace helps him beat defenders with ease, with the defender skillful enough to contribute offensively. However, the full-back’s short stature is what reportedly put Premier League clubs off from bidding for him, with several pundits questioning Max Aarons’ lack of defensive prowess as well.
