Fabrizio Romano rubbishes Tottenham making a combined offer for Harvey Barnes and James Maddison.

Relegated Leicester City still want big money for Tottenham Hotspur target James Maddison

Tottenham Hotspur have been told that Leicester City will still want around £50million for star playmaker James Maddison even after their relegation.

The Foxes were relegated despite beating West Ham United 2-1 earlier today as Everton managed to eke out a 1-0 win against AFC Bournemouth. Before the game, Daily Mail claimed that relegation wouldn’t mean a cheap price tag for Maddison.

They also mention that the midfielder had interest from Newcastle United but he has waited around for Spurs to make their move. This summer could be our chance to land the 26-year-old.

A player of Maddison’s quality would surely no longer want to be a part of a team in the Championship, unless his loyalty for the Foxes overpowers his desire to play at the top level.

Go for it Spurs

We can take advantage of this and possibly try to get them to lower the price tag, especially if the former Norwich City star is also on board with the idea of a move to N17. His contract also has a little over one year left on it (Transfermarkt).

We lack a player of his profile, who can run with the ball from midfield into the attacking third and get the attackers into play. He would be an ideal signing in that regard.

With Lucas Moura’s impending exit and the failure to replace Dele Alli’s impact on the team for years now, Maddison could be the No. 10 we need to contribute directly to goals.

Hopefully, the Magpies have lost their interest in James Maddison and Spurs have a free run at him. It is, however, certainly a high price tag for a player set to enter the final year of his deal who perhaps won’t want to stay in a team that has been relegated.
