Liverpool legend Steve McMahon has urged manager Jurgen Klopp to make a move for the highly-rated Leicester City midfielder James Maddison.
In the latest interview with Stadium Astro, Steve said, “ I think Maddison has another level to go. I think there’s a top team, if it’s not Liverpool then United maybe, they’ll be in for him. He can only get better.
“Jurgen loves up and at them players, 100 per cent, non-stop work rate. He knows his full-backs can create a chance, space and can go for an overlap.
“I don’t see Maddison sitting on the bench [at a big club]. Say he comes to Liverpool, I’m not telling James Maddison to leave, but if I’m Klopp I would be looking to sign a player.
“He’s young, he’s English, he’s got a lot going for him. He changes the tempo of the game, why wouldn’t he get in Liverpool’s midfield?”
James put in a goal-scoring performance for the Foxes against the Merseyside club the previous week. However, his goal wasn’t enough for Brendan Rodgers’ side to get anything out of the clash at Anfield as midfielder James Milner successfully converted a match-winning penalty in the 95th minute.
Klopp has already seen what James is capable of in the Premier League. The English midfielder has enjoyed a magnificent spell at the King Power Stadium after signing from Norwich City in the summer of 2018.
The 22-year-old star has gone on to make 46 matches for the East Midlands outfit, scoring ten goals while picking up nine assists on all fronts. He has also managed to start this season firing on all cylinders, having netted three goals and creating two assists in eight matches for the Foxes thus far.
