Arsenal warned James Maddison will cost £100m by Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers after Jack Grealish’s record transfer

BRENDAN RODGERS reckons he has his own £100million man in James Maddison.

The Leicester boss thinks Maddison could be every bit as valuable to them as British record signing Jack Grealish is to Manchester City.

And with Arsenal rumoured to be lining up a summer swoop, Rodgers has warned it will take a similar offer to prise Maddison away from the King Power Stadium.

After beating City in the Community Shield, Rodgers said: “I think they are both close. They are both very talented players.

“Stylistically, I think they’re the same. They are both creators.

“But I would say they are both totally different. One is a dribbler – one commits people down the sides.

“James is more central and he’s more of a passer. So yes, they are both creative players but stylistically they are both very different.

“Everyone could see today how hard James works for the team, his quality and how he takes the ball. His eye for the last pass.

“He is a wonderful talent and I thought he was excellent tactically because they really challenge you in that respect. I thought he was brilliant.”

Rodgers, who is fending off the Gunners’ interest in Maddison, has backed his star to add to his single England cap this season.

He added: “James was unfortunate in that he suffered from a number of injuries which curtailed his progress last season.

“This will be a big year for him, trying to maintain that fitness – you need a little bit of luck with that as well.

“All he can do is play to the highest possible level for Leicester and see where it takes him.”
