£60M midfielder would prefer to complete summer move to Arsenal –

arsenal, maddison

James Maddison would prefer to join the likes of Arsenal over Newcastle United this summer window – reports have claimed

After developing into one of the most creative players in the Premier League – and before his serious injury – Maddison was linked with a move to Arsenal throughout the last summer transfer window but, despite speculation, a transfer never materialised

It has been claimed that ArsenalFC were prepared to pay as much as £50 million to try and secure a transfer deal for Maddison, but Leicester did not want anything less than £60 million, so the Gunners opted to get Martin Odegaard instead

However, the Gunners have maintained their interest in the player as Mikel Arteta knows that he needs to keep improving on the quality of player that he has at the club right now, and it is believed a move will be made.

But there is speculation that Newcastle have already made a move to sign Maddison as they seek to try and make some impact signings by the end of the transfer window

But – IcFootballnews has learned that Maddison would much prefer to join a club like Arsenal then one like Newcastle – as the Gunners are much more likely to challenge for a Champions League place

Amid all the speculation – Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has come out and stated that he is happy with the midfielders’s attitude amidst all the speculation – Rodgers said: “I think it’s always a challenging time until the window shuts.

“There’s always speculation and gossip around players leaving but I always assess the players every day and if their mentality and commitment doesn’t change, then that’s all you want.”

Maddison is a very gifted player but we cant see him joining ArsenalFC or Tottenham at this stage of the transfer window – especially as the Toon are offering a lot more than what the London clubs are offering

But it will be interesting to see how this all plays out as Newcastle have been unable to sign the players that they want

And Arsenal are seemingly getting every player that they desire
