Arsenal are willing to offer Leicester’s Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles as part of an additional £50 million bid to get James Maddison.
The Foxes ace is seen as a big target for the Gunners this summer, looking to get another no. ten
Mikel Arteta needs more creativity in midfield and Martin Odegaard is unlikely to return to Real Madrid on loan or permanently.
Leicester star Maddison proved to be a very influential part of Brendan Rodgers’ team when he was in good shape.
And the East Midlands part, of course, is not in the mood to give up any of its most valuable assets.
But the Gunners hope the inclusion of secondary members Nelson and Maitland-Niles will help reduce the asking price a bit.
The man on duty, Maitland-Niles, was spotted by the Foxes last January and looked stunning while on loan at West Brom in the second half of the oblast season. In addition, Rodgers would try to hire a striker at King Power Stadium, and Nelson can still prove he is a top player at just 21 years old. Leicester reportedly turned down a £70m offer from another Premier League club for Maddison last season, and the England international signed a new four-year contract.
That means stocks of it will be higher than ever, putting the Foxes in a strong position and no need to sell.
