James Maddison’s stance on potential Arsenal switch revealed

James Maddison’s stance on potential Arsenal switch revealed

An insight into James Maddison’s stance on swapping Leicester City for Arsenal this summer has been forthcoming on Saturday afternoon.

Arteta eyeing reinforcements

The subject of the attacking midfield spot at the Emirates has taken centre stage in the media chatter on the back of the 2020/21 campaign coming to a close.

This comes with Arsenal having struggled for central creativity throughout much of a disappointing season.

The eventual emergence of Emile Smith Rowe of course proved a huge plus, whilst Martin Odegaard did a solid if unspectacular job following his loan arrival during the January window.

Mikel Ateta, however, is evidently of the opinion that his side remains in need of another spark.

This, in turn, led the board in North London to sanction a big-money swoop for Norwich City star Emi Buendia at the beginning of the month.

In the end, though, Arsenal were somewhat surprisingly beaten to the Argentine’s signature by Premier League rivals Aston Villa.

Maddison ‘open’

If the latest word doing the rounds in the European media is anything to go by, though, then it appears that the Gunners’ search for creative reinforcements remains very much alive.

Last weekend, for example, saw Real Betis star Nabil Fekir hotly tipped for an Emirates switch.

The latest name to be pushed in the press as a potential addition to Mikel Arteta’s squad, though? James Maddison.

As revealed just days ago, the Arsenal boss has long been a fan of Leicester star Maddison’s talents, with the board in North London, as a result, taking a bid into consideration.

And, as outlined above, on Saturday, a fresh update on the situation has been forthcoming.

As per a report from reliable transfer insider The AFC Bell, Maddison himself is ‘open’ to the idea of taking on a new challenge this summer. In turn, the midfielder’s representatives have informed Arsenal that striking a deal is not out of the question.
