Leicester playmaker James Maddison has been linked with a transfer from the King Power Stadium. Newcastle have failed in successive bids for the England international.
Brendan Rodgers has insisted that Maddison will not be sold and that Newcastle’s £40m bid would not be enough to buy just one of the 25-year-old’s limbs. But Leicester need to sell before they can complete their own business. They are the only Premier League club not to make a senior signing during the summer transfer window.
Spurs have not been strongly linked with Maddison, but CBS Sports reporter Ben Jacobs insists that Conte is a fan of the former Norwich City ace. He would be a good addition to either the midfield or the forward line.
