May 21, 2018

Man City and Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Norwich City wonderkid James Maddison after his impressive season in the championship.

The 21-year-old’s fine form for the Canaries so far this campaign has resulted in interest from some of Premier League top clubs, founding the back of the net 15 times on his way to being named the club’s player of the year.

The Mirror reports that the Canaries are ready to cash in on 21-year-old midfielder too, placing a £30m asking price tag for his signature.

Liverpool are believed to be ready to meet Norwich’s asking price for Maddison as well as Manchester City.

Maddison – an England Under-21 international last season spent on loan at Scottish club Aberdeen, however, has since established himself as one of the key players for the Canaries appearing in all, however, two of their Championship outings this campaign.

In addition to scoring 15 goals, 21-year-old Englishman has created eight chances for his teammates.

Norwich could also lose winger Josh Murphy who has been heavily linked with a switch to Leicester City.
