Exclusive: Steve Howey full of praise for Arsenal target James Maddison

Leicester City midfielder James Maddison has been linked with a move to Arsenal this summer with the Daily Mail recently claiming the Gunners are willing to offer players such as Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles as part of a deal, and former Fox Steve Howey has been waxing lyrical about the England international.

Maddison featured 42 times in all competitions for the Foxes last season, helping himself to 11 goals and 10 assists in the process.

The attacking midfielder has been an outstanding talent for Leicester, with former player Howey full of praise for him.

“I mean there’s no doubt that the lad’s got very, very good ability, we’ve seen some of his goals and some of his assists, absolutely excellent”.

Arsenal will be looking to add some creative players to their ranks this summer to fill the void that Martin Odegaard left when he returned to Real Madrid, after his loan spell at the Emirates came to an end.

Leicester lifted the FA Cup the season just gone as they beat Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley, with Maddison a second-half substitute replacing Kelechi Iheanacho.

Maddison also only put pen to paper on a new contract at the King Power stadium last summer, with his new deal running until June 2024, and according to it will take a fee in excess of £60million to prise him away from the Foxes.
