Arsenal Yet To Reach Leicester’s James Maddison Valuation As Brendan Rodgers Eyes Replacement

Posted by

According to, Arsenal are still some distance off Leicester’s valuation of James Maddison, with the club keen to sign a back-up goalkeeper and a creative midfielder before the transfer window shuts.

Last month, reported that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admires Maddison and plans to sign him this summer, with a source close to Maddison revealing that the 24-year-old is ‘at the top of the list’ for the Gunners in the summer transfer window.

Negotiations are’very slow’ and ‘like a game of chess,’ according to, although Maddison remains keen on a move to north London. However, Arsenal’s main stumbling block is Leicester’s demand for more over £60 million for the former Norwich and Coventry midfielder.

In the event that a contract cannot be finalized by the August 31 deadline, technical director Edu is said to be looking into cheaper possibilities on the market.
