Tottenham are set to battle a number of clubs for one of England’s most promising players in James Maddison. The 21-year-old plays for Norwich City in the Championship and has been linked with a move away from the Canaries.
Maddison plays down the centre and can be deployed as an attacking midfielder as well. The Mirror claims that we are tracking the situation of the Englishman, facing stiff competition from other Premier League clubs such as Southampton and Liverpool.
There is more to this as the report claims that the Championship side do not want to lose out on their player at the moment. However, the side could think about selling him in the summer should a quality bid come in.
The 21-year-old has done a great job so far this season with 6 goals and 5 assists from just 24 games, which is a pretty good return for a midfielder. Maddison does have a lot of qualities in him that can make him a great Premier League player for the future as his passing, dribbling and set-piece deliveries are top notch.
Maddison’s future could depend on how well Norwich do in their attempts to get promoted but the club is currently in 13th place and it seems unlikely they will make it to the promotion playoff spots too.
Mauricio Pochettino does have a history of doing well with young players and should we sign Maddison, he could turn out to be another gem in the future. The 21-year-old is a creative spark in the middle of the park and seems to be chipping in with goals too, something we need from our midfielders.
Should we sign the English youngster, he wouldn’t make it straight into the first-team but he would rather be part of the development squad at the start before Pochettino can gauge how good or bad the Norwich man is. In all probability, any move for the player should be left out for the summer after we find out what happens to the other youngsters in our team.
Maddison does have a bright future ahead of him and hopefully, he will make the right decision when he moves away from the Canaries.
