Maddison set for Leicester City deal?


England international James Maddison will reportedly sign a new contract with the Foxes in the coming weeks, amidst interest from Premier League giants Man Utd. The Leicester City creative midfielder has been one of the top flight’s bright sparks so far this campaign, with his club now desperate to tie the player to a long-term new contract.

Since Maddison’s arrival from Norwich City, the midfielder has made his debut for England and has shone in the Premier League, helping Leicester City to the top half of the league table.

According to the Daily Mail, Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to add creativity to his midfield and sees Maddison as the perfect acquisition for the January transfer window, but the price tag of £65 million could scare off the Old Trafford outfit.

It is also understood that Tottenham and Arsenal also hold a long-term interest in Maddison, while French giants Paris St Germain have deployed scouts to monitor Leicester City games in recent times. 

Maddison has three years remaining on his current contract.

Ben Chilwell news

Chilwell to Chelsea in January?


Chelsea are deemed to be leading the race to sign defender Ben Chilwell from Leicester City when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

The Blues are presently banned from signing any players until July 1 but they are hopeful of reducing the punishment by six months after their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

According to The Mail, both United and Chelsea are looking into signing a new left-sided defender but the latter are leading the race to sign the England international.

Emerson and Marcos Alonso have been the preferred picks for the left-back role under Frank Lampard this term and the former has regularly got the nod for the starting XI.

Still, Lampard is understood to be eyeing a more attack-minded left-back, who can also be effective in the defence and Chilwell has been identified as the top target.

Leicester City have generally turned down the opportunity to cash in on their star players at the midway stage of the campaign and it remains to be seen whether they are tempted to sanction Chilwell’s sale, should the right offer come by.

Maddison on Real radar


Manchester United target James Maddison has reportedly emerged as a surprise transfer option for Real Madrid amid his impressive performances for Leicester City over the past 16 months.

The 22-year-old has been one of the Foxes’ most consistent performers since his move from Norwich City last year and he has already amassed 10 goals and nine assists while operating in the number 10 position.

Over the past few weeks, it has been indicated that United could be the next destination for the England Under-21 international but Marca claims that Los Blancos could come up with a bid of their own for the playmaker.

The 13-time European champions are currently going through a transitional phase and it is claimed that Maddison has been identified as a suitable target for the creative midfield role.

Maddison currently has under four years remaining on his current contract with the Foxes and the east Midlands outfit are bound to demand fees of around £80m for his future sale.

There has recently been speculation that Maddison could leave the Foxes in January but that would come as a surprise, given the club have generally declined to do business at the midway stage of a campaign.

Kane wanted by Real Madrid
Football Transfer Centre


Real Madrid are reportedly set to target the signing of Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur when the current campaign comes to a close.

The England international has been a huge contributor for Spurs over the years and he has bagged 168 goals from 259 appearances including four from the opening six games this term.

Still, Kane has not won a single trophy for his efforts with the north London club and Rio Ferdinand recently suggested that the centre-forward should leave Spurs to win silverware.

According to AS, Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is determined to pursue the services of Kane and a formal approach could be made during the 2020 summer transfer window.

Spurs are currently in a strong position to keep hold of Kane, who has more than four years left on his contract, but Los Blancos appear prepared to spend most of next summer’s budget to lure the striker to the Bernabeu.

Luka Jovic was recruited by Zinedine Zidane‘s side during the summer to provide competition to Karim Benzema upfront but the Serbian has drawn blank during his first five games for the club.

United still in talks for Maguire


Manchester United are reportedly continuing their negotiations to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City despite the Foxes being reluctant to reduce their £80m price tag for the defender.

The England international has been identified as the prime target to strengthen the central defensive department at United but so far, the club have failed to reach an agreement in terms of the transfer fee.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are unwilling to offer more than £70m for the centre-back but they remain hopeful of convincing the Foxes into a sale.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers has recently indicated that the club find themselves under no pressure to sell the 26-year-old, though their hand may be forced, if the defender pushes for a departure.

Aside from Maguire, the Red Devils have been fancied to sign Bruno Fernandes from Sporting and reports have indicated that they are close to agreeing a deal worth £64m for the Portugal international.

Leicester City enter race to sign Lewis Dunk

Dunk set for Premier League transfer?
Football Transfer Centre


Leicester City have approached Brighton and Hove Albion regarding a transfer move for impressive centre back Lewis Dunk. The player, who has been linked with a move to the Foxes as a potential replacement for Man Utd bound Harry Maguire, has 1 cap for England and is hopeful a transfer elsewhere will boost his own international prospects.

With Harry Maguire seemingly headed to Man Utd away from Leicester, Foxes’ manager Brendan Rodgers is seeking a move for Dunk as a replacement for the England centre back.

Dunk has played over 240 times for Brighton since coming through the ranks in 2010 and is considered one of the club’s best players. The 27-year-old has remained fiercely loyal to his current team but some senior players at the club admit that the player is now likely to depart.

Dunk is valued by his team in the region of £40 million.

Veteran striker Glenn Murray told reporters that he hopes Dunk will decide to stay with the team:  “As far as any of our better players are concerned, they are the ones you want to keep. But football is a business as well as a sport and I think everyone has got their price.

“As far as the players are concerned, we all want Lewis to stay and lead us into another Premier League campaign.”

Sami Khedira news


Wolves are chasing Juventus’ midfielder Sami Khedira on a reported 15 million euro transfer move. The German international, who won the World Cup in Brazil in 2012, is reportedly ready to move to England in search of regular first-team football.

The 32-year-old has a deal with the Turin side until 2021 and has been informed by newly appointed manager Maurizio Sarri that he is free to leave the club.

The former Real Madrid star, who has been with Juventus since 2015, is seeking regular first-team football after the arrival of Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal.

Last season Khedira played in just 10 Serie A games, scoring two goals, and was mainly restricted to a bit part role at the club due to the emergence of Emre Can.

It is understood that Khedira is frustrated with a lack of game time at Juve and has instructed his agent to find him a new club prior to the end of the transfer window, with also reported interest from China and also in his homeland Germany, with Werder Bremen and former club VfB Stuttgart interested.
