Leicester City’s James Maddison (26) is attracting interest from Tottenham.
“Tottenham will step up their pursuit of Maddison after the appointment of manager Ange Postecoglou,” the British media outlet ‘Daily Mail’ reported on the 8th (Korean time), saying, “Leicester City will reduce the transfer fee for Maddison to 60 million pounds (about 97.3 billion won) after their relegation.”
“Tottenham are set to step up their interest in Maddison, who is set to leave the club after Leicester City were relegated,” the report added.먹튀검증
“When Leicester City rejected Newcastle United’s offer, the fee was £60 million, but the Foxes have been relegated to the Championship and Maddison has just one year left on his contract, so the price could drop further.”
Playing for Leicester City since the 2018-19 season, Maddison is a player who can lead an attack with his excellent passing and kicking ability. He can set up his teammates with crisp passes or break down defences with accurate kicks.
He has 10 goals and 9 assists in 32 games this season. However, his team’s performance was disappointing. With nine wins, seven draws, and 22 losses, they finished 18th in the league. The relegation meant they would not be seen in the Premier League next season.
In the meantime, Leicester City are rebuilding their squad. Maddison is on the list of players to leave.
Tottenham had a stable attacking operation with Christian Eriksen in the past, but since his departure, there has been a thirst in the midfield. Giovani Lo Celso left the club after a disappointing spell at Tottenham, while Tanguy Ndombele also failed to make it at Spurs. Why Spurs want Maddison.
Tottenham have been interested in signing Maddison for some time, but they are not leading the race. As the outlet explains, “Spurs aren”t the only club that Maddison, who has long dreamed of playing in Europe, could join. Arsenal were also interested two summers ago, along with Newcastle, and Manchester United before that.”
