Chelsea and Arsenal in the Race for James Maddison
Chelsea and Arsenal Eye Maddison
Chelsea has reportedly joined Arsenal in the pursuit of Leicester City star James Maddison.
According to transfer journalist Simon Phillips, both clubs are keen on signing the English midfielder this summer. Leicester City, having failed to secure their Premier League status, is expected to sell some of their key players in the upcoming transfer window, with Maddison being one of them.
Maddison’s Potential Departure
Maddison, who had an impressive campaign despite Leicester’s struggles, scoring 10 goals and providing nine assists in 30 Premier League appearances, is expected to leave this summer. The 26-year-old’s talent is undeniable, and he would certainly strengthen either Chelsea or Arsenal’s midfield.
The Battle for Maddison
It has been reported that Leicester City will let Maddison go if either Arsenal or Chelsea submit an offer of around £40 million. This puts both clubs in a position to secure Maddison’s services at a reasonable fee. However, it’s worth noting that Maddison isn’t a top target for Chelsea at the moment, but this could change as the transfer window progresses.
As the summer transfer window approaches, the potential move of Maddison to either Chelsea or Arsenal could significantly impact the football landscape. With both clubs interested in Maddison, the coming weeks will be crucial in determining where the English midfielder will play next season.
