James Maddison is having a wonderful season for Leicester City following his move from Norwich City in the summer of 2018, and there is no surprise that Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with the 22-year-old.
Leicester secured the services of the attacking midfielder from Norwich for a transfer fee reported by The Leicester Mercury to be worth £24 million.
The England Under-21 international has made 31 starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League for the Foxes so far this season, scoring seven goals and providing six assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
According to The Times, Tottenham are interested in signing Maddison from Premier League rivals Leicester in the summer transfer window.
Manchester United legend Gary Neville has been impressed with Maddison, and he has made a comparison between the youngster and Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard - who is one of the best players in the Premier League - outlining how the two players are similar in the way they play their football.
Neville said about Maddison on Sky Sports Premier League on Friday evening (7:38pm, April 12, 2019): “I mentioned Eden Hazard the other night. They play football like it should be played as a kid where it’s just really enjoyable. He is having an amazing first season.”
