Tottenham target James Maddison would be sold if the right bid is submitted
Leicester City star James Maddison has been on the up since his move from Norwich City.
The 22-year-old midfielder is one of the most creative players in the Premier League and was recently called up to the senior England squad.
The report adds that Manchester United were also keen on the Englishman and speculation about his future will continue until January.
Leicester decided to sell Harry Maguire for a record fee in the summer and Brendan Rodgers told that the Foxes could be tempted to sell other stars for the right price. The former Liverpool manager was quoted by Leicester Live saying (h/t Football.london):
“In a player’s career, there will always be that temptation.
“This is a club that doesn’t want to sell its best players, but of course, if there’s a valuation that is met, which meets what the club perceive the player to be worth, then there will be a discussion.”
However, Rodgers didn’t want to lead teams on with bids for Maddison just yet:
“But it’s not something we want to invite. James is very much a talented player for us.
“He still has lots of improvements to make as a young player.”
Rodgers added that he was a “realist” and knew how the market works, but wanted to keep hold of his starlets.
A perfect player for Spurs?
Maddison would be a wonderful addition to the side and given Mauricio Pochettino’s history of working with young players, we would see the best out of the Englishman.
The 22-year-old has to keep on producing the goods in the midfield, and he should get a big move sooner than later.
