Arsenal will need to pay at least £30m in order to sign Norwich City defender Max Aarons this summer.

The right-back has been heavily linked with a departure from Carrow Road and he could be on the move this year.

According to The Telegraph, the Canaries are aware of the transfer interest from multiple clubs in the Premier League.

However, they are likely to stand firm on their £30m valuation for Aarons, who was on the radar of Barcelona last summer.

The Gunners have been closely following the right-back's progress over the past 12 months and he is on their summer wishlist.

The north London giants have identified Aarons as a possible replacement for Hector Bellerin, who could leave the club this summer.

Bellerin has been linked with a return to Barcelona where he was previously in the La Masia academy between 2003 and 2011.

He could be sold for around £30m and it remains to be seen whether the Gunners will invest the entire sum on Aarons.
