Romano says Tottenham are yet to open talks to sign James Maddison

Fabrizio Romano has told Caught Offside that Tottenham Hotspur are yet to open talks with Leicester City over James Maddison, but do have a good relationship with his agents.

Spurs have obviously enjoyed a brilliant window so far. Any further additions would provide the icing on the cake for Antonio Conte’s squad ahead of the new campaign.

And in the last few days, a move for Maddison has been mooted. Reports have claimed that the Leicester star is open to joining Tottenham. And crucially, Conte is a fan of the 25-year-old.

Unfortunately for the Tottenham fans keen on seeing Maddison arrive, Romano has suggested that there is no move in progress. However, he did offer a glimmer of hope for those supporters.

“There is currently no negotiation between Tottenham and Leicester for Maddison; relations with his agents are excellent but so far the situation is quiet,” he told Caught Offside.

“Tottenham have already made a lot of quality signings, and are now only focused on selling Giovani Lo Celso, Harry Winks, Sergio Reguilon and many other players.”

Tottenham yet to open talks over Maddison

It certainly does appear that it is one situation to keep an eye on. As Transfermarkt shows, Maddison works with the same company who represent Son Heung-min and Richarlison.

That should definitely help if talks do get going. But obviously, the fee that Leicester want for Maddison is going to be a major hurdle.

The England international enjoyed a stunning season last year. He scored 18 times and contributed 12 assists in all competitions, with 12 goals coming in the Premier League.

He would certainly be a hugely exciting signing for Spurs. Conte probably could do with more creativity in those attacking midfield areas. And Maddison would absolutely provide that.

He is a ‘sensational‘ player. Talks may not be underway, but if he gets off to a flyer at the start of the new season, that situation may well change.
