Pundit Ray Parlour has urged Tottenham Hotspur to sign Leicester City playmaker James Maddison this summer.
Speaking on TalkSPORT (13/6 8:57am), Parlour and Ally McCoist were discussing the 26-year-old’s future.
The England international is almost certainly going to leave the King Power Stadium before next season.
His ten goals and nine assists from an advanced midfield role made him one of the best performers in the league.
Unsurprisingly, he’s already been linked with moves to Newcastle and Tottenham among other clubs.
He believes the 26-year-old would fill a spot in the Spurs squad that’s been vacant for years now.
Parlour urges Tottenham to sign Maddison
Asked about where the playmaker might end up this summer, Parlour said: “I would say that [James] Maddison at impact at Spurs wouldn’t he than Newcastle?
“I think Newcastle’s midfield is a lot stronger.
“[Rodrigo] Bentancur was out for quite a while and they missed him in central midfield.
“But, Maddison, they’re dying for a player like him at Spurs.”
Ally McCoist added: “I don’t think they’ve replaced [Christian] Eriksen in that particular role.”
Whether or not Tottenham will move to Maddison will depend on how new manager Ange Postecoglou decides to set up his new team.
