Tottenham legend Hoddle urges club to make transfer bid for James Maddison as he’d be ‘absolutely sensational’ | The Sun

TOTTENHAM legend Glenn Hoddle has urged his former club to sign James Maddison in January.

Maddison, 25, was heavily linked with a move away from Leicester during the summer transfer window.

Newcastle attempted to sign him in August for around £40million, but the Foxes refused to let their star man go.

And now Tottenham are claimed to be considering a swoop.

According to GiveMeSport and transfer expert Dean Jones, Spurs boss Antonio Conte is a huge admirer of Maddison.

Tottenham legend Hoddle also believes the midfielder will be a perfect fit for the north London side.

Because at the moment it’s down to them [Kane and Son], it’s down to Harry dropping in and creating when I think the style of the players they’ve got up the pitch, if you did have that [Christian] Eriksen when he was Tottenham, for example.

"Maddison, I agree with whoever said that in the background, I love him, I think he’s one that should be in the England squad.

"I think if he was playing at the top – no disrespect to Leicester – but if he was playing in a top-six team he would be absolutely sensational and probably a shoo-in.

"You know, someone like that who comes in off the lines, creative, you’ve only got to look at the best teams in the country and you’ve got them sort of players."
