'He's a top player': TalkSPORT pundit urges Newcastle to sign 26-year-old, thinks he'd be brilliant for them
Maddison has been linked with a move away from Leicester this summer, with reports suggesting that the one-time England international is open to joining the Magpies.
On his TalkSPORT show, Brazil said about a potential move to Newcastle: “He would be a good signing, don’t worry about that, he’s a top player”
“He seems to be overlooked in the England set-up, but when he’s on his game, his assists are fantastic, he scores goals. Without doubt he’d be a huge success at Newcastle.”
McCoist echoed Brazil’s thoughts on the attacking midfielder, and agreed with Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers’ assessment on a potential fee for Maddison.
“I couldn’t agree more Alan, he’s a player I really like. I agree with Brendan (Rodgers) in that he’s said that £40m wouldn’t be anywhere near enough, and I’ve got to say I agree with him.”
Newcastle urged to sign Maddison
James Maddison is a player in demand this summer after finishing the 2021/22 Premier League season strongly.
Maddison scored in each of Leicester’s last four league games, and provided three assists as the Foxes recorded a safe mid-table finish.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have yet to make a move in the transfer market, with no incomings or outgoings ahead of Sunday’s opening match at home to Brentford.
Antonio Conte is also reportedly a big fan of Maddison, and Spurs could rival Newcastle for Maddison’s signature.
