Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Leicester City attacker James Maddison this summer.

Leicester City's James Maddison is reportedly a transfer target for Arsenal, as the Gunners look to bring a new attacking midfielder to the Emirates Stadium.

The 24-year-old only signed a new long-term deal with the Foxes last August but is said to be open to leaving the King Power Stadium during the current window.

Maddison, who was left out of the England squad for the European Championship, scored 11 times and contributed 10 assists in 42 appearances for Brendan Rodgers's side this term.

According to Sky Sports News, the Gunners are interested in bringing the playmaker to North London, although Leicester could ultimately price him out of an exit.

The report claims that Mikel Arteta's side would need to offer in excess of £70m to convince Leicester to sell Maddison during this summer's transfer window.

The former Norwich City youngster, who struggled with a hip problem in the second half of last season, has a contract with the Foxes until June 2024.
