The Lowdown: Maddison superb for Leicester
The 25-year-old may have been playing in a struggling Foxes side this season but he has been their best player by some distance.
The Latest: Tottenham move talked up
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones talked up the possibility of such a transfer happening, believing that Maddison would be quite eager to move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The journalist said:
“I think that Maddison is one of the players that we’ll be hearing about in terms of Tottenham’s transfer pursuits.
“They’ve looked at it before, it’s been a tricky one, but Maddison clearly would be interested in a transfer I think in the pretty near future, and it’d be hard to turn down a proposition like Tottenham.”
The Verdict: Exactly what Spurs need
Maddison’s quality as a footballer is without question, with England manager Gareth Southgate even describing the player’s set-piece ability as ‘world-class’ back in 2019.
It feels as though the midfielder has outgrown Leicester at this point, with the Foxes struggling at the wrong end of the Premier League table and Spurs would be the ideal next move for him, allowing him the chance to test himself at a higher level.
A tally of 51 goals and 34 assists in 183 appearances for Leicester speaks for itself, and his ability to break the lines and win matches with his quality could take Conte’s side up another gear.
