Maddison associated with Arsenal
Arsenal’s quest for fresh creativity is well known as the Gunners desperately need an extra spark in their attack.
Martin Odegaard spent the second half of last season on loan at the Emirates Stadium but Real Madrid have yet to show any signs that he is looking to part ways with the 22-year-old again this summer.
As a result, Arsenal have started negotiations with Leicester City for midfield creator James Maddison, according to Chris Wheatley, author of football.london.
Excl: Arsenal have proposed a player-plus-cash deal for Leicester midfielder James Maddison.
I have been told that the negotiations are “very slow” and “like a game of chess” but the player is dying to move to North London.https: //t.co/jOGOBDeKTI

Since then, it has been found that Leicester has turned down all player swap proposals, with the Midlands outfit presumably holding its full price in cash.
Arsenal hit a double
And now Arsenal have dealt a double blow in the pursuit of the Leicester man. First, Maddison began the Foxes’ Test win over Villarreal, a brilliant game that was immaterialized by a terrible injury suffered by Wesley Fofana, which will mean he will miss much of the coming season.
That Maddison was at the forefront of the clash, however, suggests a move is still a long way off, and after the game, Brendan Rodgers put an end to rumors of the midfielder’s failure.
The Leicester boss said:
“I think he will stay. Work very hard in training. Clearly gossip and speculation at this time of the year. Important member of our squad. Hopefully this year the real top player can show that he is. “
🗣 “He’s happy in training. James [Maddison] is a very important member of our management team. “

Comments like these are sure to dampen the Gunners’ hopes of signing the Leicester star, and Arsenal fans will pray Rodgers will bluff.
