Latest report claims Tottenham are pushing hard to get deal done for midfielder with 40 assists

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly in pole position to secure the signing of Leicester City star James Maddison.

The attacking midfielder has been linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium since last summer, with both Tottenham and Newcastle United interested in his services.

Fabrizio Romano last week reported that insiders at Tottenham consider Maddison to be an “important player” for their summer transfer plans.

And according to Football Insider’s latest report, Spurs are “pushing to get a deal done” as part of a “huge overhaul” at the club.

The report also states that Tottenham will need to pay £60m to secure the 26-year-old’s signature. This valuation matches Leicester’s asking price from last summer, which Newcastle failed to meet with two unsuccessful bids.

Despite Leicester’s disappointing season, Maddison has continued to impress with nine goals and eight assists in the Premier League so far. He has scored 54 goals and provided 40 assists in 199 appearances for the Foxes since joining from Norwich City in 2018.

Tottenham are in need of a creative midfielder, and Maddison’s abilities make him a perfect fit for the North London club.

However, the possibility of Champions League football could be a factor in Maddison’s decision-making. Tottenham currently sit in sixth place, with finishing in the top four appearing unlikely at this stage. Meanwhile, Newcastle look set to finish in the top four, currently sitting third in the table with 65 points.

Maddison is under contract with Leicester until 2024, but the club’s struggles this season could lead him to seek a new challenge.

Tottenham’s interest in the midfielder is a clear indication of their ambitions to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.

While the situation remains fluid, Tottenham’s efforts to secure a deal suggest that Maddison could well be on his way to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the near future.
