Arsenal Target Max Aarons Is Atletico Madrids First Priority To Replace Kieran Trippier

According to reports, Atletico Madrid has made Norwich City right-back Max Aarons their top priority to replace Kieran Trippier if the England international joins Manchester United.
Aarons, 21, is highly regarded after earning his second promotion with the Canaries last season, with Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta rumored to be interested in bringing him to the Emirates.
But, with Atletico Madrid prepared for Trippier’s departure after he was linked with a return to United in England, the Mirror reports that Aarons is at the top of their list of replacements.
According to reports, Atletico Madrid has signed Max Aarons (left) as a No 1 replacement for Kieran Trippier. The Euro 2020 star is interested in returning to his homeland.
The Red Devils are keen on the 30-year-old, according to Sportsmail, but may struggle to meet Atleti’s asking price as they close in on a deal to sign Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane.
United’s first proposal for Trippier was allegedly rejected, but the club is likely to make a second offer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer attempts to bolster his defense.
After three good seasons as the starting right-back at Carrow Road, Aarons has gained plenty of fans throughout Europe, with Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Manchester United all connected with moves alongside the Gunners.
After starring in another Canaries promotion, the right-back (centre) is loved across Europe. Atletico’s interest might be a blow for Mikel Arteta, who has previously been linked with Aarons. Arteta is keen to overhaul his squad this season, and a right-back could be an area for development, with Hector Bellerin linked with Inter Milan, leaving Cedric as the sole alternative.
Arsenal has already signed Nuno Tavares from Benfica, and Ben White and Albert Sambi Lokonga are set to seal agreements worth PS50 million and PS18 million respectively in the coming weeks.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Trippier in to compete with current right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, although he may possibly play both if he switches formations to three central defenders.
Trippier was a key member of Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions side during their historic journey to the Euro 2020 Final, appearing in five of the team’s seven games.
