Arsenal recieve boost in pursuit of James Maddison

James Maddison interesting Arsenal

Arsenal are on the lookout this summer for an attacking midfielder to replace the position which they lost by Martin Odegaard returning to Real Madrid from his loan spell.

Arsenal had looked to bring in the Norwegian on a permanent deal but were unable to convince Real Madrid to sell him. They also bid for Emi Buendia but were unsuccessful with Aston Villa’s pursuit much more attractive to the Argentine.

With these two targets out of the picture for now, Arsenal and Mikel Arteta have moved onto other options. One of the possible alternatives has been touted to be Leicester City’s James Maddison.

The England international has been a key figure in Leicester City’s push for a Champions League spot over the last two seasons. It would be a surprise to see Maddison swap the Europa League competing side for an Arsenal team out of Europe entirely this year.

Arsenal’s Maddison boost

However, the possibility of Leicester City allowing Maddison to leave may have improved for Arsenal slightly.

It was revealed today that Leicester City are looking to renew the contract of Youri Tielemans. This comes after Liverpool’s supposed interest in the player has cooled and is no longer a factor according to the Telegraph’s John Percy.

The Athletic’s Leicester correspondent Rob Tanner told The Gooner Talk that should Youri Tielemans leave, then Maddison wouldn’t be sold.

“Historically they only ever sell one. Every summer since they won the title in 2016 they’ve sold one player. It’s been Kante, Drinkwater, Mahrez, Maguire, Chilwell,” said Tanner.

“It’ll only be one, so if Tielemans goes, Maddison won’t go.”

However, with the news that Tielemans could be staying, this has led to the possibility of Maddison to Arsenal becoming more probable.
