Tottenham could be on alert, with Leicester City reportedly closing in on a move for Ayoze Perez.
BBC Sport report that the Foxes have struck a £30 million deal with Newcastle United for the forward’s transfer.
The 25-year-old’s future has been in some doubt for most of the summer, and it would appear the departure of Rafa Benitez is proving to be a catalyst for the player’s exit.
Perez’s stock is high at the moment after a great 2018/19 that saw him score 12 league goals.
Leicester moving for Perez is interesting, as the player spent a lot of time playing as a second striker last term.
That was a position James Maddison operated in, so perhaps Perez to the King Power will open the door for Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham were linked with a move for Maddison earlier this summer (The Mirror), and maybe if the Perez transfer goes through the north Londoners will stand an improved chance of landing the Englishman.
Maddison has tremendous quality and has shown he is more than capable of playing in the Premier League.
He would be expensive, but Spurs are likely going to sell Christian Eriksen this summer, with his contract expiring next year.
That will leave them needing a replacement and Maddison could provide the technical quality, as well as strengthen the team’s English core.
