Leicester want Maguire money for Arsenal, Chelsea target Maddison

Leicester City will only consider crazy offers for James Maddison this summer.

The Leicester Mercury says the Foxes would need to receive a huge bid for Maddison – as well as an admission that he sees his future elsewhere – in order to consider a sale.

The England international has emerged as a surprise transfer target for Arsenal and Chelsea in recent days.

But the prospect of a deal is unlikely. Maddison has three years left on his contract at the King Power Stadium, leaving City in a position to demand a huge fee for their number 10.

That the 24-year-old is a homegrown player, and has proven he can rack up good numbers of goals and assists at Premier League level, also adds to a potential price tag, which would have to be close to the £80m figure Manchester United stumped up for Harry Maguire.
