Norwich City will demand £25 million for Tottenham target James Maddison this summer, according to the Mirror.

Maddison has emerged as one of the most highly-rated young players in the country following a string of fine performances in the Championship.

The Mirror believes Spurs and Chelsea are leading the chase for the 21-year-old, who joined Norwich from Coventry City in 2016.

After impressing for SPL side Aberdeen on loan in the 2016-17 campaign, Maddison returned to Norwich where his displays have made him an England Under-21 international.

That form has increased his price tag drastically – the Mirror’s report claims he is now valued at £25 million by his current employers.

On top of that, Manchester City and Everton are believed to be monitoring Maddison’s situation, meaning Tottenham will face plenty of competition for his signature.

Spurs would be wise to target a player who can can provide cover and competition for Christian Eriksen this summer – the side is devoid of creativity without the Dane.

Maddison certainly fits that profile, and Mauricio Pochettino has an accomplished track record when it comes to developing young English talent.
