Speaking on The Done Deal Show, Dean Jones discussed James Maddison amid some ongoing links with Tottenham Hotspur.
The Leicester City midfielder is reportedly being watched by Spurs, and while a deal isn’t imminent, it’s certainly one to watch.
According to Jones, Maddison could quickly have his head turned by interest from Spurs, while the reporter says it could be a deal Tottenham will explore late in the window – stating he could go to the wire.
What was said?
Jones spoke about Maddison’s situation.
“You wonder what James Maddison is thinking and no doubt he would have his head turned if Tottenham genuinely put in a bid, it would leave Leicester in a difficult situation where they have to decide what would be a good fee at the moment. £60million bundled up is a lot of money for Tottenham to invest, but we’ve seen them spend a lot on Richarlison that people didn’t see coming, and I think James Maddison would elevate this club to a another level,” Jones said.
“Let’s see, I still expected this move to happen later in the window because Spurs have done the bulk of their deals. Traditionally they go for late moves and get a deal done last week, so maybe this one could go over the wire.
Frosting on the cake
This Maddison move could go all the way, and if the Leicester star is indeed a late signing for Spurs, he would be the icing on the cake in what has been a terrific transfer window.
Spurs have improved in all of their key areas this summer, and the addition of Maddison would give them yet another string to their bow.
Indeed, this signing would not only see a brilliant player added to the Spurs squad, it would give Antonio Conte the tools to use his 3-5-2 formation when the 3-4-3 doesn’t quite work. .
This could be a remarkable late signing for Tottenham.
