Tottenham Hotspur rarely do business during the January transfer window under Mauricio Pochettino, but they are being heavily linked with a move for a Championship star.
Maddison, 21, is enjoying a stunning season under Daniel Farke, having hit seven goals and five assists in just 25 Championship outings this term, triggering Premier League interest.
It's now claimed that Tottenham could launch a £20million move for Maddison this month, with the intention of loaning him back to Norwich for the rest of the season.
That's something Tottenham have done under Pochettino, having signed Dele Alli from MK Dons in January 2015 before sending him back to the League One club on loan, meaning they may be willing to do the same with Maddison.
Spurs have just sent Marcus Edwards on loan to Norwich for the rest of the season, but having lost Alex Pritchard to Huddersfield Town, the Canaries surely won't be keen to lose another playmaker.
As a result, fans have taken to Twitter to offer their reaction to the latest Maddison rumours, with many suggesting that £20million would be too good to turn down, especially if he could be loaned back for the rest of the season.
Some believe that Spurs are the perfect club for Maddison to join, and think that Edwards' loan is a sweetener to sign Maddison, but others don't want any deal done at all as they look to focus on a play-off place.
I wouldn’t even take £20M for Maddison in this window. I know it’s the hope that kills you, but only 6 points to the playoffs, players like Maddison are the ones that could just get you over the line. If you make playoffs, we know only too well, you’re in the lottery #ncfc— Ashley Howell (@AshleyHowell2) January 16, 2018
I would be so angry if we sold Maddison at all this window..... let alone to Wolves!! For only £20M! In the summer to a top 6 side who loan him back to us is only what I’ll take!! #ncfc— Tristan long (@TristanlongLong) January 16, 2018
Really hope we can keep hold of Maddison until summer. And then negotiate a sale with a big club for lots of cash and an agreement to loan back for next season too. Would be ideal. #ncfc— Andrew Nickerson (@andrewnickerson) January 16, 2018
Looking more likely that Spurs loaning Edwards to Norwich is a sweetner so they can sign Maddison this window with a loan back to Norwich for remainder of the season. #NCFC— Gavin Morris (@GavinMorris7) January 16, 2018
If and I mean IF Maddison does go this window then Spurs would be the only club I’d accept. Young, attacking manager who could bring out the best in him. #ncfc— Dave Rogers (@davencfc92) January 16, 2018
I really don’t want James Maddison to leave this Jan. Like really really. Most exciting player #ncfc have had in so long— Lauren (@x_laurenmoore_x) January 16, 2018
20m for Maddison is realistic if true. Would hope the Board would insist on loan back for remainder of season though #ncfc— Luke Moore (@lukebenmoore) January 16, 2018
Cor £20m for Maddison is an unreal bid, no way we can turn that down if true #ncfc— Aaron Tye (@AaronNcfcTye) January 16, 2018
We all know a move too soon for Maddison isn't what he needs. Regular first team football is. #ncfc— Pech (@PecheyYellow) January 16, 2018
