James Maddison has really proven himself this season. The ex-Norwich man will have loved seeing the Canaries win promotion this season, but his rise to prominence has been even greater than that of his former club and after watching him closely last night plenty of Liverpool fans want to sign up the impressive 22-year-old.
The young attacking midfielder has shone throughout the season, scoring seven and assisting the same amount in his 35 Premier League games. That kind of form, at his age, has warranted a Transfermarkt valuation of £27 million, although should Jurgen Klopp answer the calls from the Reds it will certainly cost a lot more than that to bring the impressive youngster to Anfield.
Indeed, the Merseyside giants were even linked by TMW with him during his Norwich City days, just prior to joining the Foxes.
It seems just a matter of time before Maddison is a regular in both the Champions League and at international level and the Reds are desperate for it be with them. It will cost a pretty penny to prise him from the Foxes though. Maddison has quickly become one of the club’s most valuable assets and whilst summer interest will be rife with big clubs looking to poach the starlet, the vast interest and the length of his current contract will drive the price up no-end for the 22-year-old.

The Reds are all desperate to see Klopp bring Maddison to Anfield and who can blame them having seen how good he’s been in his Premier League debut season.
