Arsenal join Liverpool in hunt to sign exciting Football League star



Coventry City’s 19-year-old academy star James Maddison is being monitored by Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool, according to the Independent.

The attacking midfielder is regularly regarded as one of the hottest English prospects outside of the Premier League and showed as much at the beginning of the season before suffering a serious injury in August that he has only just recovered from.

The Sky Blues’ star asset made his comeback as a substitute during their 1-1 all draw with Oldham on Saturday, and Mowbray says he will ease him back into first team football to ensure he is fighting fit for his side’s new year promotion push.

This is because Mowbray appears pretty confident that he can warn suitors away from his teenage sensation despite reported potential bids of between £5m and £10m, depending on if the Sky Blues clinch promotion to the Championship.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Mowbray said:

“I think English teams want the best English players. Teams are getting in kids as young as 11 and buying them houses because they want those players.”
“These big teams might think that they’ll able to get a player from a League One club but I have to say I think the owner is pretty resolved on the matter.”
Mowbray seems convinced that Maddison should be allowed to develop at his home town club for years to come, but this may not be a reality if the big clubs continue to monitor Maddison over the coming months.
