The Canaries, relegated from the Premier League, want a guaranteed £20million plus a further £10m in add-ons for Aarons.

As the transfer continued to stall, Barca turned their second choice defensive target – Sergino Dest from Ajax.

The report adds that Aarons has now become Barcelona’s preferred option once again and the 20-year-old has agreed a five-year deal.

Yet the Nou Camp outfit are struggling to agree a loan transfer with Norwich, with the Championship side only willing to sanction a move with an option to buy.

Aarons is one of the most wanted young right-backs in Europe and has already interested Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern.

The England Under-21 international was named EFL Young Player of the Year after his breakout campaign of 2018/19.

He was one of the Canaries’ bright spots of their single season in the top-flight.
