Maddison’s contract still has three more years left to run, leaving Leicester in a strong position.

But according to The Guardian, the 24-year-old is very ‘open’ to the move – despite Arsenal’s lack of European football on offer.

The Gunners have already spent around £75m this summer.

And they could look to lower Leicester’s price by offering players in exchange.

Football London claim that homegrown talents Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Joe Willock, Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah could all be on the table.

They also reckon that negotiations have so far been ‘slow’ and ‘like a game of chess’ between the two clubs.

But a deal could be struck before the end of the month.

Maddison has made 127 appearances for Leicester, scoring 27 times and assisting a further 20 goals.

He has won one England cap, but failed to earn a place in Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad.

Alternatively, Arsenal could still try and bring back Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants have reportedly shown a willingness to sell the Norwegian ‘for the right price’.
