Leicester reject offer of four Arsenal players as makeweights in Maddison deal

Arsenal have offered four players in a player-plus-cash deal for Leicester City star James Maddison.

The Gunners are unable to meet Leicester's price of tag of £60m and want to include players to lower the fee.

They have put forward one of Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Eddie Nketiah as makeweights in the deal for Maddison, per

However, Leicester are not interested in any of those players and instead want straight cash.

Arsenal do possess an advantage however, in the fact that Maddison wants a move to the Emirates.

The asking price could prove to be a sticking point for the north London club, but Maddison could put pressure on Leicester to sell.

Alternatives to Maddison include Real Madrid ace Martin Odegaard and Lyon midfielder Houssem Aoaur, who remains keen on a move to the club.
