MANCHESTER UNITED are weighing up a January move for Norwich's Max Aarons.
Red Devils boss Erik Ten Hag is keen to bring in another right-back to rival Diogo Dalot with Aaron Wan-Bissaka's Old Trafford future in doubt.
United have been long-term admirers of Aarons and were one of eight clubs who scouted the 22-year-old at England Under-21s victory over Germany at Bramall Lane in September.
Aarons, valued at £10million by Norwich, is one option in the frame with Bayer Leverkusen's Jeremie Frimpong also understood to be under consideration.
Ten Hag hailed first-choice Dalot's improvement after the Portugal right-back produced an impressive display in the 1-0 Premier League victory over West Ham on Sunday.
But the Dutchman also sent a clear message that he wants to bolster the competition in his squad with out-of-favour Wan-Bissaka playing just four minutes for United in all competitions this season.
