£60 Million midfielder ‘will suit’ Tottenham – board have been told


Tottenham have been told Leicester City star James Maddison could be the ideal signing for the club in the summer window

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 Tottenham throughout the last summer transfer window but, despite speculation, a transfer never materialised

It has been claimed that Tottenham 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 Spurs board opted out of making a move

However, the Spurs have maintained their interest in the player as Antonio Conte 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 in the summer

And amid all the speculation, Noel Whelan has opened up and sent a clear message to the Spurs board: “He’s a very intelligent attacking player. He scores goals, gets loads of assists, and he’s a player Tottenham have been crying out for,” former Leeds striker-turned-pundit Noel Whelan told Football Insider.

“They got Giovani Lo Celso after Christian Eriksen left – that never worked out. They’re really missing that midfield player who has an eye for a killer pass.

“He’s proved he can do it in the Premier League by being a very important piece of the puzzle for Leicester.

“I think he would suit Tottenham down to the ground. With that front three in front of him, they could go to the next level with him.”

Maddison is a very classy player that would have been a fantastic signing for Tottenham, there are many fans out there that were sad to see that a deal never happened

So even though he is not having the best of seasons this time around, he just needs a new home to freshen up – seek a new challenge and Spurs could be it

The transfer window is many months away, but if he does come onto the market, Tottenham should at least make a transfer move for the man
