Gareth Southgate to watch James Maddison as he ponders call-up

Leicester City have been rather impressive under the guidance of Claude Puel so far this season, with a number of new players settling in nicely. 

Indeed, the Foxes drafted in a number of players during the summer transfer window, and it’s fair to say that it’s beginning to pay off in the current campaign. Interestingly, one of their summer signings is attracting the interest of the England manager, as according to the Telegraph, Gareth Southgate will watch James Maddison.

James Maddison has the chance to try to force his way into England’s squad for the UEFA Nations League games against Croatia and Spain.

England manager Gareth Southgate is scheduled to be among the crowd at St James’ Park to see Maddison and his Leicester City team-mates take on Newcastle United, with a call-up being pondered.

Southgate faces a selection dilemma in midfield due to injuries, so Maddison is being eyed up as a potential option.

THE VERDICT:

James Maddison has been one of the standout performers in the Premier League so far this season as he continues to defy expectations at the King Power Stadium.

It comes as no surprise that the summer signing is already receiving international recognition in the form of Southgate pondering a call-up, with a bright future ahead of him on the international stage.
