Everton eyeing move for Norwich City midfielder James Maddison
It’s no secret that Everton are interested in James Maddison. But who isn’t?
The reports in England suggested that Everton are eyeing move for Norwich City midfielder James Maddison.
The England international joined Norwich City from Coventry City for a fee in the region of 2.65 million euros in February 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2021.
Maddison made 53 appearances across all competitions for Norwich City, scoring 16 goals and supplying 13 assists in return.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 21-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
James Maddison has represented England at Under-21 level, winning three caps.
His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including Everton.
Marco Silva wants to sign a new midfielder and James Maddison is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The report claims that Everton manager has extensively scouted James Maddison and is considering a move for the midfielder.
Everton will be desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
His tricky dribbling, fantastic shot and pace make him a nightmare for any defender to defend.
According to the Sky Sports, “Everton are expected to start the bidding for Norwich City’s player of the year James Maddison – with an offer likely in the next week, according to Sky sources. With parachute payments now coming to an end, Norwich look set to cash in on Maddison – and are looking to recoup £20-£25m for him.”
