Well, Football London are claiming that an unnamed London club have also made the same offer for Maddison – it could potentially be Spurs.

Arsenal have submitted a player-plus-cash deal for the 24-year-old.

The exact sum is not mentioned, nor is the player on offer.

Leicester want over £60m for their No.10, which would see them receive more than triple the £20m spent when signing him from Norwich in 2018.

Surely it isn’t Tottenham

In our view, the mystery London club isn’t Tottenham.

Spurs already have a number of attacking midfield options, such as Dele Alli, Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele.

Additionally, Nuno Espirito Santo doesn’t really use a No.10 like Maddison.

Should Nuno adopt the 3-4-3 system he used quite often at Wolves, there wouldn’t be a natural position for someone like Maddison.

Furthermore, it would be a lot of money to spend on a luxury signing, when areas such as right-back and centre-back still need reinforcements.

For now, let’s see what the Tottenham fans have been saying about the slim chance it could be their club going for the 1-cap England international…
