Tottenham are interested in signing Leicester City midfielder James Maddison this summer, according to the Mirror.
Maddison was heavily linked with Spurs before he left Norwich City for Leicester last summer following an impressive season in the Championship.
The 22-year-old has scored five goals and provided four assists in 22 Premier League appearances so far this season but hasn’t always pleased Foxes boss Claude Puel.
Indeed, Maddison was substituted midway through the second half against Manchester United last weekend, much to the frustration of the Leicester supporters.
Regardless of Puel’s opinion, it seems Mauricio Pochettino is a fan of Maddison.
The Mirror claims Tottenham have added the former Coventry City midfielder to their list of summer targets as the club attempts to increase its home-grown quota.
It is believed Maddison has been identified as a potential replacement for Christian Eriksen amid growing fears the Dane will not sign a new contract with Spurs.
However, reports in Spain suggest Real Madrid have ended their interest in Eriksen, whose current deal expires at the end of next season.
It would be interesting to know if Tottenham are considering a move for Maddison regardless of whether Eriksen stays or goes.
