Norwich demand £25 million for midfielder as Premier League clubs hover

The Sun reports that Championship side  Norwich City want £25 million for their midfielder James Maddison, who is being watched by Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester City and Everton.

The England under-21 international cost just £2.5 million from Coventry City when he moved to Norwich just two years ago, but has made a big impact since his time at Carrow Road, scoring 14 times this season as well as providing a number of assists.

That form has attracted attention from a number of other Premiership clubs, with Southampton and Championship leaders Wolves the latest to show an interest.

However, Spurs and Liverpool are thought to be the favourites to sign him, having already alerted Norwich of their interest during the last transfer window.

Maddison spent the first part of the 2016/2017 on loan at Aberdeen, for whom he made 17 appearances and notched 2 goals. Now he looks set to move again in the summer, although his destination is yet to be decided.
