Potential consequences of Spurs signing James Maddison

Potential consequences of Spurs signing James Maddison

Tottenham Hotspur will be desperate to get the better of Leicester City tomorrow afternoon in order to keep the pressure on the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool.

Spurs have done very well to creep their way back into the title race as they looked dead and buried at one point, but they now have an outside chance of making something happen with Dele Alli and Harry Kane still to return.

Although, it looks as if Mauricio Pochettino already has one eye on the summer transfer window, as according to The Mirror, Totteham have added James Maddison to their list of homegrown summer targets.

Indeed, securing the services of the Englishman would be great for Spurs for many different reasons, and it would certainly contribute towards a successful summer transfer window.

Therefore, here are the potential consequences of signing James Maddison in the summer…

POCHETTINO SECURES ERIKSEN REPLACEMENT

Christian Eriksen’s future continues to be surrounded with doubt in North London as the Denmark international is still yet to sign a new deal at the club, with AS reporting last month that a new Spurs deal is unlikely for the Dane.

So, Spurs could secure themselves a direct replacement by signing James Maddison as the Englishman operates in exactly the same position, and has shown that he can produce goals and assists this season.

Of course, the midfielder is obviously not as established as Eriksen, but he has already displayed plenty of quality during his first season in the top-flight at just 22 years of age, so he will no doubt grow into a Premier League star.

LEVY SPLASHES CASH

A big problem for Spurs has been their inability to spend in the previous two transfer windows, as Daniel Levy has failed to deliver anything positive on the transfer front in North London.

Indeed, the one thing that supporters would love to see is Levy splashing the cash in the summer transfer window, with Spurs’ Premier League rivals inevitably strengthening at the same time.

Maddison moved to Leicester for £24 million back in the summer transfer window and he’s improved massively since rocking up at the King Power Stadium, so Levy is going to have to break the bank to bring him to Tottenham.
