Tottenham Hotspur fans want Leicester City’s James Maddison signed, after he raved about Harry Winks.

Maddison told Sky Sports that Spurs midfielder Winks was among the most creative players that he has played against this season.

He said: “Harry Winks is another good example, a very good passer of the ball. The job against Spurs was to get into a narrow three, force it wide, and stop the danger players getting it through the lines.

 

“Even then, when we were doing that quite well against Spurs, Harry Winks could get it through, with a quick two-touch pass.”

The comments have caught the attention of Tottenham fans, after Maddison has been linked with a move to Hotspur Way.

The Daily Star (October 5th, p51) have suggested that the Leicester playmaker is very much on Tottenham’s radar.

And Spurs fans have urged him to join Winks in North London now.

If Maddison was to move to Spurs he would cost a significant amount, with the Star suggesting he is valued at £60 million.

Tottenham may need a new creator added to their side, as it seems likely that Christian Eriksen will leave at the end of the season, when his contract expires.
