Leicester City have put a £60 million price tag on reported Tottenham Hotspur target James Maddison, according to the Mirror.

Last week, the Mirror claimed Spurs are eyeing a summer move for Maddison after receiving a huge windfall for reaching the Champions League final.

But now it seems most of that windfall would disappear if Tottenham did move for Maddison after Leicester set their asking price at £60 million to put the Londoners off.

The 22-year-old scored seven goals and provided seven assists during his debut Premier League season following a move from Norwich City last summer.

He was the only player in the top-flight to create 100 chances last season and is likely being identified as a replacement for Christian Eriksen, who has been linked with an exit.

Whether Spurs are willing to break their transfer record on Maddison remains to be seen, particularly as they have already allegedly made a huge bid for Real Betis star Giovani Lo Celso.

Mauricio Pochettino is expected to be backed in the transfer market this summer, but there is obviously a limit to what Tottenham will be able to spend.
