Liverpool now monitoring James Maddison

Liverpool now monitoring James Maddison - Liverpool News

Liverpool are monitoring Leicester City midfielder James Maddison ahead of a potential move this summer, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Family of supporters

The Foxes playmaker has entered the final 18 months of his contract at the King Power, and having not put pen to paper on fresh terms, has been heavily linked with an exit.

Premier League clubs Newcastle and Tottenham have made the 26-year-old a primary target, but it’s Jurgen Klopp who may have an unexpected advantage.

The England international has previously admitted that he comes from a family of Reds supporters and it sounds like he’s caught the eye of the hierarchy at Anfield.

The Latest: Liverpool eyeing Maddison

According to Football Insider, Liverpool hold an ‘active interest’ in Maddison and are ‘monitoring’ his situation ahead of the upcoming summer window.

The Merseysiders are set to be ‘in the mix’ for his services should he leave Leicester, with a fee between £60-70m ‘likely to be enough’ to complete a deal.

The Verdict: Splash the cash

Liverpool are in desperate need of a midfield revamp and being Leicester’s overall top-performing player, FSG should definitely splash the cash to secure Maddison’s services.

The Puma-sponsored star has already scored nine goals and provided five assists in the top flight this season, where he’s averaging 2.9 shots and 2.3 key passes per game (WhoScored).

The Foxes talisman can play in seven various positions across the pitch and is a free-kick specialist, ranking second behind Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse for most set-pieces netted.

Maddison has been hailed a ‘frightening’ player by BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand, making him the perfect candidate to inject some spark into the middle third on Merseyside.
