Top Premier League Clubs Set To Battle For Signing of 26 Years Old English Playmaker
As the January transfer window nears its close, rumors of a potential move for Leicester City attacking midfielder James Maddison have begun to circulate. According to reports, Newcastle United, Liverpool, and Manchester United have all expressed interest in the 26-year-old England international.
In his Reading the Game newsletter for The Independent , journalist Miguel Delaney writes that Newcastle have had a long-standing interest in Maddison, and that Leicester could be willing to sell if they receive a substantial offer in the final days of the transfer window. Delaney also notes that Maddison is believed to be aware of the interest from these clubs.
While Leicester City are currently rejecting any approaches for Maddison, Delaney suggests that a high enough offer could change their mind. He also speculates that if Newcastle United were to make a move for the player, it could spark a late bidding war.
Maddison has been a key player for Leicester City since joining the club in 2018, scoring 27 goals and providing 21 assists in 135 appearances. His performances have not gone unnoticed, with many top clubs reportedly monitoring his progress.
It remains to be seen whether any of these clubs will make a move for Maddison before the transfer window closes, but one thing is certain – the young midfielder is a player to watch in the coming days.
