Football.London have claimed that West Ham boss David Moyes will struggle to bring Norwich City right-back Max Aarons to the London Stadium this summer because of his £30 million price-tag.

According to a report from talkSPORT, the Hammers want to sign the 20-year-old this summer. They could face competition from Tottenham and Arsenal, however.
Reliable insider ExWHUemployee also suggested that West Ham are indeed keen to sign the Canaries ace.
Hammers boss David Moyes undoubtedly needs a new right-back this summer.
Jeremy Ngakia and Pablo Zabaleta have left and Ryan Fredericks quite simply isn’t good enough to be playing regularly in the Premier League.
And Norwich ace Aarons would be a very useful option for West Ham.
In 33 Premier League outings for the Canaries, he has racked up two assists and has averaged 1.4 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 1.9 clearances per game (Who Scored).
Bearing in mind the fact that he is playing for a team who are rock bottom of the league, those numbers are fairly impressive.
Football.London claims that West Ham could be blown out of the water in the race for Aarons’ signature, however. And missing out on the 20-year-old would be a real shame.
The Hammers need to cut their cloth accordingly this summer though. They are not immune from the financial impact of the global health crisis.
And David Moyes will need to be very smart in his summer recruitment.
Who knows, however. If West Ham do stay up and they manage to sell some of the deadwood for decent money, they might be able to surprise a few people by bringing Aarons to the London Stadium.
