Leicester is not interested in players being offered for Maddison
It was revealed Tuesday afternoon that Arsenal had proposed a player-plus-cash deal for Leicester midfielder James Madison:
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

Maddison would undoubtedly be a great addition to Arsenal’s midfield and would replace Martin Odegaard’s creativity upon his return to Real Madrid.
However, an update surfaced on Wednesday regarding the Gunners’ Maddison chase and it’s not good news for Arsenal fans.
Journalist Pete O’Rourke reports that Leicester has shown no interest in any of the players Arsenal offered as part of the Player Plus cash deal for Maddison:

Gunners-affiliated Sam Johnstone is likely to leave West Brom
In addition to a creative midfielder, Arsenal appear to be looking for a goalkeeper this summer.
One of the names associated this summer was Sam Johnstone of West Brom.
The Baggies are now naturally poised to pursue their trade in the championship following their relegation last season, with Johnstone’s future seemingly distant from the Hawthorns.
In a recent speech about Johntone, West Brom manager Valerien Ismael stated that he has no future at West Brom and that Johnstone expects to leave the club:
“He came back from vacation early – that’s a sign. I’ve spoken to him and I have the feeling that Sam is happy to be back again. “
“We never said he didn’t have the right attitude, he has no future here. His expectation was that he would go. “
No acceptable offers for Martinez

For now, however, it doesn’t look like the Gunners have made much headway on a potential deal.
This comes with journalist Kristof Terreur reporting that Inter did not receive any acceptable offers for Martinez:
Inter have yet to sell one more player. No acceptable offers have been received for Lautaro – the one they wanted to sell – so … If Inter accepts the offer, Lukaku will move …
