Tottenham Hotspur: Conte could form deadly duo with James Maddison swoop

Tottenham Hotspur have one of the deadliest attacking duos the Premier League has ever seen in the shape of Heung-min Son and Harry Kane.

In February, the duo broke the division’s record for goal combinations (37), which was then held by Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba. Indeed, the connection between the two players was labelled “the best partnership in world football” by former Spurs striker Jermain Defoe.

Even though the north Londoners have already been rather busy in terms of bringing new players to the club, they still have time to strengthen their squad even further.

One man who has been mentioned with a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium who would give Antonio Conte the chance to create what could potentially be an even deadlier partnership with Kane is Leicester City midfielder James Maddison.

After scoring 16 goals and providing 13 assists in 53 appearances for his previous club Norwich City, the Englishman joined Leicester in 2018 for a fee of £20m. Since then, the 25-year-old has found the net 45 times and supplied 32 assists in 170 appearances across all competitions.

Last season saw the midfielder rack up more shots at goal (73) and shot-creating actions (100) than any other player at the Midlands club.

In fact, only three other players in the entire league ended the campaign with more goal-creating actions than the Leicester star (19).

Would you want Spurs to pay £60m to sign Maddison?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This shows how comfortable the 25-year-old is at not only scoring goals but providing them for his team-mates as well.

With Kane (21) being one of those three players to record more goal-creating actions than Maddison, this shows how deadly the duo could be in terms of setting up goals as well as scoring them, if they were to become team-mates in N17.

Lauded by Brendan Rodgers for his “sensational” performances in a Leicester shirt, the ex-Norwich midfielder certainly has the talent to be able to pull the strings in Spurs’ midfield and help the likes of Kane and Son to keep the goals flowing.

Even though it would reportedly take a hefty fee of £60m – which is what Spurs paid to sign Richarlison – to secure the Foxes star’s signature, this would certainly be an investment worth making for Tottenham, and one which could potentially push them into a title race.
