Pundit Cascarino urges Maddison to join Arsenal after impressive weekend display

Tony Cascarino has urged Leicester starlet James Maddison to join Arsenal after yet another impressive weekend performance,

James Maddison scored yet another trademark free-kick as Leicester beat Huddersfield 4-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

It was a surprisingly end to end game, but Leicester’s superior attacking quality told and the England under 21 international got on the scoresheet again with a wicked set-piece that gave Ben Hamer no chance.

In the aftermath of that game, former Chelsea striker turned pundit James Maddison urged Maddison – who only joined Leicester last summer for a fee the BBC reported was £20m – to move again.

According to the Game, page 5, 08/04, Cascarino feels that Maddison would be a perfect fit for Arsenal, who are still looking to improve under Unai Emery.

Cascarino said: “I look at Maddison and I think – Arsenal is your team. Maddison should be the man to replace Aaron Ramsey. Arsenal desperately need someone who plays like the Leicester man.

 

“Maddison’s work-rate is good and getting better. There is no question about whether he is technical enough for the top flight.”

Maddison and Ramsey are different players – if anything, the Englishman would be a replacement for Mesut Ozil in the number 10 position.

But he is performing well and perhaps causing a few clubs who didn’t take the punt on him when he was in the Championship to regret it.

Is he a top four player? He has the ability, but Arsenal need to bolster their defensive and wide options first, as a matter of urgency.
