Leicester City have been installed as favourites to sign Norwich City's talented midfielder this summer. The Foxes look set to beat Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham in the race to sign England youth international Maddison from the Carrow Road side.

The 21-year-old has been a revelation since bursting on to the scene at Norwich City and now will make a move to the Premier League after an impressive Championship campaign last season.

Maddison scored a stunning 15 goals last season for the Canaries and Leicester City are confident that the midfielder is the player to help rekindle the glory days at Leicester City.

Both Southampton and Everton have been credited with an interest in Maddison, but Tottenham and Leicester City have emerged as the two most likely to sign the youngster; with the Foxes now in pole position to wrap up a deal for the player.

Norwich City have been undertaking a massive overhaul of their squad ahead of next season, having already sold Josh Murphy to Cardiff City.
