Despite heavy defeat to Liverpool, Arsenal fans call for Max Aarons swoop
Supporters of Arsenal have taken to social media in numbers this evening, to react to the latest performance of Norwich City defender Max Aarons.
Daniel Farke’s men were back in Premier League action a short time ago.
After securing promotion courtesy of a table-topping finish in the Championship last time out, the Canaries were tasked with a daunting opening day meeting with Liverpool.
Coincidentally, the two clubs also met on the first day of the 2019/20 campaign, albeit at Anfield, with Jurgen Klopp and co. having ultimately emerged on the right side of a 4-1 scoreline.
And, when all was said and done at Carrow Road on Saturday, a similarly one-sided result was ultimately forthcoming.
Mohamed Salah proved the star of the show, teeing up goals for strike partners Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino, before getting in on the act himself with a trademark left-footed finish 15 minutes from time.
THERE IT IS! ☄️
The ball fell to Mo Salah at the edge of the area…

As outlined above, though, on a day which saw Liverpool, and Salah grab the headlines, it is in fact one of those to have lined out for Norwich who has since piqued the attentions of a rival Premier League fanbase.
The player in question? Max Aarons. The supporters? Those of Arsenal.
Taking to social media in numbers, those of a Gunners persuasion, evidently of the opinion that their side remain in desperate need of reinforcements at right-back, have called for Aarons to be targeted over the final weeks of the transfer window.
This comes with Norwich’s young stopper having coped impressively with the constant threat of Sadio Mane and co. this evening:
Max aarons. @Arsenal

Max Aarons has been thoroughly impressive so far, if only we needed a good right back with tons of potential…

Max Aarons has been excellent. Arsenal shift out two of our RB’s and go get him. Make Chambers back up CB
