£40M asking price set as Mikel Arteta wants nine-goal Premier League star at Arsenal


Leicester have reportedly set their asking price for James Maddison amid rumored interest from Arsenal .

The Gunners are still sitting pretty at the top of that Premier League and are totally focusing in on bringing home that League title for the first time since 2004 – but that has not stopped all the speculation about players they could sign.

Maddison’s form has won him many admirers as well as his first England cap, which came against Montenegro in November, And Leicester could be forced to sell their prized asset with Maddison’s contract expiring in 2024.

That means the Foxes have one last opportunity to cash in and are demanding £50million to let him leave, report The Telegraph. with the report reporting Leicester announced losses of £92.5million for 2021-22 and selling Maddison for around £40M would help their financial situation.

The England midfielder has impressed this season with nine goals in 21 league games.

Newcastle have also been linked with the playmaker, but the Englishman is keen to challenge for trophies and play in the Champions League – something that the Toon may not be able to achieve for a few seasons yet.
