Premier League rivals place £50m asking price for English international on Tottenham’s radar

Tottenham have submitted an opening £40m bid for James Maddison.

Leicester City want £50 million for Tottenham Hotspur target James Maddison

According to The Telegraph, Leicester City have named the price tag for Tottenham Hotspur transfer target James Maddison.

Maddison is a player that Tottenham have been keeping tabs on for a while, and with the midfielder set to enter the final year of his contract this summer, the North Londoners are reportedly preparing to make their move.

It’s no secret that Tottenham’s midfield has been lacking creativity this season, and Maddison could be the missing piece of the puzzle. He is a player that possesses excellent technical ability, vision, and is capable of scoring goals from midfield.

The 26-year-old’s versatility is also a massive plus, as he can play as a central attacking midfielder or deeper, as well as out wide. He deserves to be playing for one of the top clubs with all respect to the Foxes.

Leicester are said to be demanding a fee of around £50 million for the England international, who arrived at the King Power Stadium from Norwich City five years ago for half that price. Some may argue that £50 million is a lot of money for a player with just one year left on his contract, but it’s a price that Tottenham should be willing to pay.

Maddison is a player who could lead a rebuild at Tottenham. He is in the prime of his career and has continued to perform at a high level, despite Leicester’s struggles this season. He’d fit into the Tottenham team very well.

Leicester’s decision to cash in on Maddison is understandable. The Foxes are unlikely to be able to hold onto him or agree on a new contract, so they would rather sell him now than risk losing him for nothing.

Tottenham’s pursuit of Maddison could be complicated by the fact that they are currently without a manager. However, the club’s hierarchy is reportedly working hard behind the scenes to identify a successor to Antonio Conte.

Tottenham must act quickly if they want to secure Maddison’s signature, as they will face competition from rival clubs. If they can get a deal over the line, it could be a significant step towards rebuilding the team and challenging for trophies.
