Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Leicester City midfielder James Maddison in recent weeks.
The 26-year-old midfielder is expected to leave the King Power Stadium at the end of the season and join a bigger club.
Maddison has certainly proven himself with Leicester City over the years and he deserves to make the next step in his career. He will be hoping to join a club capable of challenging for trophies in the coming seasons and Tottenham could prove to be a quality step up in his career.
The North London giants have now been urged to sign the 26-year-old playmaker during the summer transfer window.
A report from Daily Mail claims that Tottenham are in desperate need of creativity in the middle of the park and Maddison could be a quality acquisition for them. The report further states that Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle is an admirer of Maddison and he would certainly want the club to sign the England international in the coming months.
The report reads: “Leicester want at least £50m for him even if they are relegated to the Championship. Maddison has been a target for Newcastle since last year but was understood to be holding out for Tottenham. The London club are desperate to add midfield creativity and Maddison has supporters such as club legend Glenn Hoddle.”
Maddison will add goals and creativity from the midfield and he could help Tottenham improve in the final third.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane has had to drop deep to create goal-scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates quite often and signing a reliable playmaker will allow the England international to focus on his goal-scoring.
Maddison has 10 goals and 9 assists to his name for Leicester across all competitions and those numbers are likely to improve when he is playing alongside better players like Kane. The move would be ideal for all parties and it remains to be seen whether Tottenham can agree on a deal with the Foxes.
The Foxes are currently battling for their survival in the Premier League and the midfielder is likely to cost around £50 million this summer.
