Manager Carlo Ancelotti wants a new player in the position and the Toffees have included the 21-year-old in their list.
However, Everton will face stiff competition in the race for Aarons with Bayern Munich also keen on his services.
The Bundesliga giants have already opened talks with Norwich about signing him while Manchester United have run the rule over him a couple of times.
32-year-old Seamus Coleman has been Everton’s first-choice at right-back this term, featuring in 15 Premier League games thus far.
Jonjoe Kenny also featured in four Premier League games before joining Celtic on loan last month, but it appears that Ancelotti wants a new right-back who will be an upgrade on his current options.
