Norwich City fans have admitted that Everton would be making a great signing by bringing in James Maddison.

The Daily Mirror have reported how Everton are preparing a bid for Maddison, which they are expected to submit next week.

Norwich fans, understandably, are keen to keep hold of their key attacking talent.

However, there is a realisation that keeping Maddison could be tough, and they have backed him to thrive at Everton, if he does leave for Goodison Park.

Maddison was in sensational form for Norwich over the past campaign, with the play maker regularly providing goals and assists.

Maddison now looks ready to make the step up to the Premier League, and Everton are battling a number of sides for his signature.

If the Toffees do bring Maddison in, they are said to want him as a replacement for Wayne Rooney, who could leave Goodison Park this summer.

Everton have been quiet in the transfer window so far, but Marco Silva is expected to make a number of additions over the coming weeks.
