Liverpool held negotiations with Leicester City starlet James Maddison and preparing to make an offer in July when the transfer window opens again. Jurgen Klopp wants to strengthen the front-line, and his primary target is the 22-year-old playmaker who had an impressive campaign and proved his worth one more time.
Xherdan Shaqiri linked with several clubs, Adam Lallana is in terrible form, and they need replacement. German manager ready to spend big money on the player during the summer transfer window. Man United, Arsenal and Tottenham are also eager to sign him, and there will be a battle for the footballer.
Maddison joined the English club from Norwich City in 2018 with a €23m deal. He became a key figure for the club and scored several incredible goals since joining. In this season, James played 38 matches, scored seven goals and provided seven assists in all competition.
It is a great result, and he can improve his consequences with top-class partners. English attacker has contracted with the Foxes until 2023, and his release clause is around €30m. His price could increase and become much more during this June. Probably he will accept the correct offer from the German coach.
Merseyside club will do everything to add him this summer, but it will be difficult as Red Devils, Gunners and Spurs also planning to make a bid during the transfer window. Reds heavily linked with Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz, Ajax forward David Neres, Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne, Sporting midfielder Bruno Fernandes and Wolverhampton superstar Ruben Neves.
