Tottenham are reportedly monitoring Norwich City full-back Max Aarons. The 21-year-old has started all 25 of their league games so far this season.

He has attracted interest from Everton and Manchester United, and now it appears Tottenham are keen on him too, according to The Mirror. Mourinho’s side are weighing up a £20million bid for the young defender

Furthermore, Spurs transfer chief Steve Hitchen was spotted in the crowd at Carrow Road as Norwich took on Bristol City in the Championship on Wednesday night.

Tottenham are also keeping tabs on 29-year-old Napoli centre-back Nikola Maksimovic. His contract expires in June, so the Serbian international, who has made 13 appearances in all competitions this campaign, is currently able to discuss terms with foreign clubs over a free transfer. According to Italian journalist Gianluigi Longari, Maksimovic has emerged as a target for Jose Mourinho’s side.

He told II Napoli Online, via Sportsmole: “About [Elseid] Hysaj I have more hope, while I believe that Maksimovic will go away. On him, there are many teams ready to satisfy him even at an economic level, including Tottenham.”
