Tottenham Expected to Bid £40 on Leicester’s James Maddison Amid Harry Kane Exit Speculations

Leicester City’s severe demotion to the Championship has been hard to comprehend. This team lifted the Premier League title in 2016, and playing in the second tier of English football would be a disaster for everyone associated with the club. What is worse is that other clubs can now cherrypick the club’s best players and pay far less than their value on the market, Tottenham included.

James Maddison, Kelechi Iheanacho, Youri Tielemans, and Harver Barnes have all been linked to different clubs. Among them, the most interesting is James Maddison, who has recently been linked with Newcastle and Tottenham.

With Daniel Levy reportedly holding talks with Harry Kane over his future, plans are en-route for life after the future of the England captain. Spurs busy summer, makes it imminent that James Maddison’s might soon be seen beside Son.

Is James Maddison to Tottenham Confirmed?

James Maddison’s move to Tottenham is only a matter of time before it’s announced. However, no official announcement has been made. Popular sports journalist Fabrizio Romano claimed yesterday that Tottenham had verbally agreed to a £40 million deal with Leicester City. Fans hope the move pans out to the Spurs camp who are in desperate need of a playmaker.

He also claimed that personal terms had already been sorted, with James Maddison set to earn a whopping £175,000 weekly at Tottenham, as reported by Mail Sport. Through this, Maddison foresees a prominent role in the Spurs midfield next season. 

The 26-year-old will be walking into a team that collapsed under Antonio Conte’s management last season. The Italian manager was sacked after a string of poor performances from a team with the quality to compete at the highest level. A round-of-16 exit to AC Milan in the Champions League sprinkled salt to the wounds.

Who Could Possibly Replace Harry Kane if He Leaves?

Manchester United have been coveting Harry Kane for a long time. The forward has been the only shiny light in a disappointing couple of years for Tottenham and has been mooted to leave the club if he ever wants to win trophies. However, Daniel Levy hesitates to sell him to a rival club where he could be a direct threat.

Bayern Munich have reportedly entered into talks with Tottenham over a move for Kane. With the German champions badly in need of a striker, the idea of Kane potentially joining them is unsurprising. A reported $90 million bid will be tabled if Daniel Levy is willing to listen.

Consequentially, Tottenham will have a huge hole to fill up. Parting with the club legend may bring more money, but replacing a center forward that scored over 30 league goals in a 38 match season would be a tight gamble.

Only a few names come to mind for replacing Harry Kane at Tottenham. The in-form Victor Osimhen would do a great job, but Tottenham may be unwilling to pay the giant fee for a player who has not been tested in the Premier League.

Thus, the logical solution would be for Richarlison to step up. The Brazilian has been underwhelming for Tottenham, scoring just one league goal in 27 matches last season. However, the time is ripe for him to hold the reigns and taste English glory.
