James Maddison has asked Leicester to let him go to Arsenal.
The Foxes are demanding £45M-£50M plus another Arsenal fringe player as part of the deal. Leicester were rumored to be interested in Ainsley Maitland-Niles last January. The player is currently valued at £15m.
Arsenal could also tempt Leicester by offering Reiss Nelson as part of the deal as Rodgers wants a right winger.
As with Harry Maguire and Ben Chilwell, Leicester are willing to sell at the right price. But negotiations won’t be easy as the Gunners will have to offer a lot of money upfront.
Arsenal are looking to replace attacking midfielder Martin Odegaard who returned to Real Madrid after being on loan to the Gunners last season.
24-year-old Maddison has created 1.6 goalscoring chances from open play per game over the last two Premier League seasons. He is one of Arteta’s top summer targets along with Manuel Locatelli and Houssem Aouar.
Arsenal fans will have to be patient though. All deals may take the entire summer window to come to fruition.
