James Maddison has been a key player on the Leicester squad that has established itself as part of the top of the Premier League. After the club's sensational and surprising championship in 2016, the club had to find itself with manager Brendan Rodgers. Maddison had his big breakthrough last season, and since then the big clubs have had the binoculars aimed at him.
Recent rumors have it that Arsenal, who finished last season in a disappointing 8th place in the Premier League, are looking for the English midfielder. Leicester, however, are demanding a high sum for their profile, as they extended the contract last summer.
About £78.3 million is demanded by The Foxes for Maddison and his technical skills, which would make him the most expensive purchase in Arsenal's history. Nicolas Pepe was brought to the London club in 2019 for 80 Million as the most expensive player in the club's history.
James Maddison has featured in 118 games in the blue Leicester jersey, and has contributed 27 goals and 20 assists.
