Transfer News: Tottenham ‘seriously considering’ signing Leicester City star

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Leicester City’s James Maddison

Paul O’Keefe has made an intriguing claim on Twitter (h/t Football.London) regarding the prospective interest of Tottenham Hotspur in Leicester City midfielder James Maddison.

Maddison has steadily developed after switching to Leicester City from Norwich City in 2018. Over the past four seasons, the 25-year-old has been one of the most effective playmakers in the Premier League outside of the traditional big-six clubs. 

He enjoyed his best season to date in the last term, totalling 18 goals and 12 assists across all competitions. Despite having a terrible season by the lofty standards they have set in recent years, Leicester managed to finish eighth thanks to a late surge, with Maddison playing a significant role. They also advanced to the UEFA Conference League semifinals.

Tottenham are making waves in the transfer market to support coach Antonio Conte and are poised to complete their sixth significant acquisition of the campaign when Djed Spence is officially unveiled as the newest addition. Spurs, however, have no plans to stop just yet. 

They appear to be on the lookout for a new creative midfielder and may raid the Foxes in the upcoming weeks in an effort to sign star playmaker Maddison. It is now believed that Spurs are seriously considering making a move for the English playmaker, 25, during the current summer transfer window.

The north Londoners have a lot of options in the midfield area, but none of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Oliver Skipp, Yves Bissouma, or Rodrigo Bentancur are particularly known for their attacking tendencies. Maddison, on the other hand, is renowned for his ability to create plays and produce offensively.

Maddison, who is frequently referred to as a No. 10, showed his versatility last season by thriving in a variety of positions, including right-midfielder, second striker, and even right forward. The 25-year-old is a brilliant creator who manoeuvres deftly in half-spaces to create goal-scoring opportunities.

When he is in full swing, he is very hard to contain because of his movement, ball control, and ability to pick out a pass. Harry Kane’s job would be lessened by his presence given he can then share some playmaking responsibilities with the now Leicester star.

But it remains to be seen if the Foxes would be open to selling one of their star players at the peak of his powers, and if Spurs would themselves look to formalise any interest they may have in Maddison.
