It’s been an impressive season for the 21-year-old who will reportedly be departing RB Salzburg after 18 months at the Austrian side. He’s won two league titles, scoring 13 goals and assisting a further 16 in 66 appearances.
Furthermore, Aaronson has broken into what is becoming an exciting young USA national team, earning 18 caps so far in his international career.
