Premier League clubs in Southampton, Tottenham and Liverpool are all set to battle it out for the signature of James Maddison in the summer.
The Norwich starlet has been one of the most impressive attackers in the Championships this season, scoring six goals and providing five assists. According to reports, Maddison has already attracted a series of transfer interest from some of the top Premier League outfits and a move next summer is looking very likely for Norwich’s rising talent.
Southampton, in particular, have shown a keen interest in the Norwich star, in recent weeks. Considering the fact that the Saints have had their fair share of troubles in the offensive department this season, the addition of James Maddison could be a logical decision by the club.
Currently lavishing in the bottom end of the Premier League table, the Saints have gathered 20 points this season, which is level with fellow strugglers Stoke City.
Charlie Austin has been the club’s top scorer this season with six goals but following the transfer rumours regarding the future of Dusan Tadic at the club, Southampton will be in dire need of some offensive reinforcements next season.
James Maddison could be an ideal replacement for the Serbian International. The Coventry-born player has established as a top-class player at Norwich and this season, he has been an important part of their attacking setup under Daniel Farke.
Capable of acting as both central as well as an attacking midfielder. James Maddison is a technically gifted playmaker who can use his technical qualities to create chances in the final third. The 20-year-old has often been the central feature in Norwich’s offensive play this season while he has also been instrumental in their overall chance creation in the final third.
His relatively low centre of gravity enables him to carry the ball effortlessly in the half spaces, which is one of the most dangerous of the field. His passing accuracy of 89% has been bettered by only one of his colleague, Harrison Reed, who is currently loaned out to the Canaries from his parent club Southampton.
For a team like Southampton, who thrives at the services of their technically gifted players, James Maddison will definitely be a perfect buy next summer. Not only can he solve their issues in the creative department but also boost their overall quality in the attack. It will be interesting to see how his transfer saga takes shape in the upcoming summer transfer window.
