Clearly, the BBC Match of the Day host thinks highly of Maddison, and we should take his word for it, seeing as he supports Leicester.
To hit double figures for both goals and assists takes some doing, so Maddison’s efforts this season should not be glossed over.
Arsenal could beat Tottenham to James Maddison
In our view, Arsenal have a good chance of beating Tottenham to Maddison’s signature, even if Spurs secure Champions League football.
Back in 2021, the Gunners tried to sign the England international, and it was even said that he was interested in a move to the Emirates Stadium.
Ultimately, a move failed to materialise.
Now, however, Arsenal are in a much better position than they were 12 months ago, so it’s possible that Maddison remains interested.
Of course, the Leicester No.10 has also improved since 2021, so he may now be setting his sights on the Champions League having already tasted Europa League football with the Foxes earlier this season.
Nevertheless, anything could happen this summer, so keep your eye on the situation.
