Arsenal in for Maddison?

Leicester City have set their asking price for midfielder James Maddison amid the reported interest from Arsenal.



The England international struggled with a hip injury towards the end of last season, but still contributed 11 goals and 10 assists.

According to Sky Sports News, the Gunners are actively looking for a creative midfielder, and have their sights on Maddison.

Maddison has three years left on his contract, and it is reported that the Foxes won't sell him for less than £70m this summer.

The north London club are keeping their options. They are also looking at the possibility of re-signing Martin Odegaard.

Odegaard spent the back end of last season on loan from Real Madrid. Mikel Arteta remains open to a permanent agreement.

The Norway international is due to make a decision in the next few weeks. If he decides to leave, Madrid could demand £42.5m.

Arsenal have made three summer signings in Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Ben White for a combined £71 million.
