The likes of Manchester United and Tottenham have been linked with a 60m swoop for the midfielder this summer, but speaking to Sky Sports Maddison said he was not interested in the rumours.

When asked if he was thinking about a move, he said: "No, you have just got to ignore that and take it all in your stride.

"As a 17 year-old boy I'd started five games for Coventry and saw on my phone that I was being linked with Tottenham and Liverpool .

"With transfer talk you need to take it as a compliment that people are even talking about you, it won't distract me."

Some were surprised Maddison was not called up to the senior squad by Gareth Southgate for the Nations League, but the player himself believes the U21 tournament will be beneficial for his development.

"This tournament is going to be better experience for me than what sitting on the bench at the Nations League would have been, I have been asked that a few times and I will never look at it and think should I be with the seniors," he added.

"I am never going to be disappointed representing the U21s with my country, I am excited and proud that I'm here."

The Foxes are expected to pay at least 12 million, according to the Leicester Mercury.

The youngster enjoyed an excellent season for Luton last term as they were promoted to the second tier of English football.

However, City are keen on making the 21-year-old their first signing of the summer and have been negotiating with the Hatters over a fee.

Luton have rejected a previous offer of 7.5 million from Aston Villa for Justin, who featured in last season's League One team. The Hatters are demanding 12 million.

City hope they can convince the Hatters to lower their asking price, but are still confident they can land their preferred target.

Reports in England and Italy had suggested that boss Brendan Rodgers wanted to add the veteran Croatian international to his first team squad.

However, a report from LeicestershireLive indicates that Perisic is not a target for the Foxes this summer.

They do want to sign a winger, but at 30, Perisic is seen as too old to fit the profile of signing the club prefers.

Leicester acknowledge the quality of Perisic, but are hoping to add a younger winger to their squad this summer instead.

The Mali international spent last season on loan at Sivasspor in Turkey, as he was struggling to nail down a first team spot at the Premier League side.

It does not appear he is in manager Brendan Rodgers' plans for next season.

Per Turkish reports, Besiktas are showing an interest in signing him.

Leicester would be open to a sale, as they are interested in signing a winger this summer and already have several players competing for those positions in the first team squad.

Beskitas would prefer a loan, but Leicester want a permanent transfer with a fee of around 3 million for Diabate.

The Red Devils could lose star midfielder Paul Pogba, after the World Cup winner declared his desire to start a "new challenge".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would need to replace the 26-year-old, should his wish come true.

Tielemans had reportedly been a target for United after a strong loan spell with Leicester City last season.

However, The Telegraph says United are focused on other midfielder targets.

Leicester are keen on making Tieleman's loan deal permanent, however, they have been put off by Monaco's 45m asking price.

The Daily Mail says the Foxes are signing 12million Luton Town defender Justin as manager Brendan Rodgers aims to build a squad strong enough to break into the Premier League's top six next season.

Justin, who can operate at right or left-back, is the latest youngster to choose the King Power as the best place to develop his career as James Maddison and others have done.

However, the 21-year-old's arrival does not mean the Foxes will show others the exit door.

They are adamant that Harry Maguire and Ben Chilwell, targets for Manchester United and City respectively, are going nowhere as Leicester try to have their best season since winning the title in 2016.

The Nigeria international has been linked with United.

"I am flattered when hearing such a thing," Ndidi told Goal.

It is very good to hear about that interest from big clubs, but there is nothing on the ground so I won't care about it.

I am focusing on AFCON with Nigeria now, and then pre-season with Leicester City. We have a great manager with ambition to compete with big clubs in the Premier League."

The Sun says United vice-chairman Ed Woodward is ready to match Leicester's 80million valuation for Maguire.

Woodward will stop at nothing to land the England centre-back who has been told he can expect a five-year deal worth 350,000-a-week.

Leicester are holding out for a world-record fee for a defender and add-ons could take United to the price they want for the 26-year-old.

The Red Devils could throw Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo into the deal if Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers is prepared to accept a part-exchange.

United also have an ace in the pack in their bid to snap up Maguire.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's No2, Mike Phelan, gave Maguire his first Premier League break when he was boss of Hull.
