Arsenal fans react to James Maddison swap reports
A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the Daily Mail claiming that the Gunners are planning to step up their pursuit of James Maddison.
According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal believe that Leicester are open to negotiating a potential move for the 24-year-old.
However, the Foxes are thought to want more than £50 million for the attacking midfielder, who earns £100,000-a-week. And thus, Arsenal are hoping that they can sweeten a bid by offering a swap.
The Daily Mail suggests that Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are potential contenders to be offered up.
It would be a remarkable deal from the Gunners who look to be well on their way to conducting quite the overhaul of their squad this summer.
Maddison has been outstanding for much of his time at the King Power Stadium. He has scored 21 goals and provided 15 assists in the top flight since his switch.
And for many, it would be an outstanding piece of business. Signing Maddison is clearly a priority for many supporters.

Interestingly however, some have expressed concern – particularly with the idea of sending Nelson in the opposite direction.
They fear that they would go on to rue that decision.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…

If they really want Madders just play the money. 65 mil should get it over the line. I

Would never let Nelson go. Nelson will be a top top player in the future.

I wouldn’t mind this but we’ll lose out on Reiss who has such an amazing talent. Low-key hoping he ain’t gonna be another Gnabry. https://t.co/cd44lRgj63
