Chelsea join the race for Tottenham Hotspur target James Maddison

In a surprising twist according to Evening Standard, Chelsea have emerged as potential competition for Tottenham Hotspur in the race to secure the signature of Leicester City’s attacking midfielder, James Maddison, this summer.

The Evening Standard recently revealed that the Blues may now rival Spurs in their pursuit of the talented attacking midfielder this summer. They have established interest in the Foxes midfielder.

It seemed, however, that Newcastle United would be the only competition for the Leicester star’s signature, as Sky Sports claimed that the Magpies had moved into pole position to secure the 26-year-old’s services.

Ben Jacobs, on The United Stand, hinted that Manchester United might pursue Maddison if Chelsea fails to lower their asking price for their own star midfielder, Mason Mount. It looks like Tottenham could be in for a bidding war.

Chelsea has shown an interest in Maddison, too, acknowledging that Tottenham has long been an admirer of the former Norwich City playmaker. However, the Blues are currently prioritizing the acquisition of a striker, a defensive midfielder, and a goalkeeper.

For Tottenham fans, this latest twist will surely raise concerns. With Chelsea’s financial might and their ability to attract top talent, their interest in Maddison adds a new dimension to the already intense competition for his signature.

James Maddison’s potential arrival at Tottenham has been widely anticipated by fans, who recognize his exceptional playmaking abilities and creativity on the field. His eye for a killer pass, ability to unlock defences, and knack for scoring goals make him an attractive prospect for any top-tier club.

As the transfer window unfolds, fans eagerly await further updates on this intriguing race for Maddison’s signature. The coming weeks promise to be filled with anticipation and speculation as Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, and Newcastle United battle it out for the highly sought-after playmaker.
