Arsenal fans react to James Maddison transfer link

Arsenal are reportedly showing keen interest in signing James Maddison from Leicester City this summer.

Mikel Arteta is looking to bolster his attacking department this summer, and has earmarked Maddison as a potential option.

The 24-year-old is one of the key players for the Foxes, and Leicester are not willing to sell him on the cheap.

According to reports from Football London, the 24-year-old is ‘at the top of the list’ for Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

Many Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to express their reaction to the reports.

Maddison is a very good attacking midfielder who is excellent at set-piece delivery, but it seems Arsenal fans do not want the club to spend over the top for his signature.

Instead, some Arsenal fans are saying that the club must show ambition in the transfer market and sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.

Grealish, who is currently with the England national squad for the Euro, would be a massive signing for the Gunners, but the chances of landing him are very slim.

The report claims that Maddison would cost in the region of £60m. Chelsea are also interested in signing him.

Villa, on the other hand, would demand a fee of around £80-100m for their star player, and it is well beyond Arsenal’s reach.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are looking to offload the likes of Matteo Guendouzi, Granit Xhaka and Dinos Mavropanos to boost their transfer kitty.

Maddison scored 11 goals and produced nine assists across all competitions last season, but his performance dipped towards the end of the campaign.
