‘He’d be their version of Dele Alli’ – Arsenal looking to seal midfielder transfer agreement: The verdict



Arsenal are among a host of clubs looking to secure a deal for Norwich City’s standout attacking midfielder James Maddison, reports the Telegraph.

Would the 21-year-old be a good signing for the Gunners? Or should he move elsewhere?

We discuss…

Jay Williams

After a poor season by their standards, Arsenal could do with an injection of creativity in their midfield for next year.

Maddison is young, English and a raw talent who could reach the very top level – He’d be their version of Dele Alli.

But Maddison needs to ask himself whether he will get as much playing time at the Emirates as he would in a mid-table Premier League side?

Alfie Burns

I struggle to see where Maddison would fit in at Arsenal, with some high-profile players already competing for an attacking midfield role at the Emirates.

Arsène Wenger hasn’t got a huge reputation for handing opportunities to young English talent, which questions whether Maddison would even play.

If I was the Norwich City star, I’d be avoiding a move to North London.

George Dagless

I think he should avoid them.

Arsenal – for all their good players and Wenger’s record of bringing through youth – are in a bit of a mess right now.

Maddison doesn’t need to get involved with that if he can help it and though it’s still a big deal to play for the Gunners, right now it doesn’t guarantee success as it once did.

Gary Hutchinson

If James Maddison is going to fulfil his potential then I can’t help but think he needs to avoid the Gunners like the plague.

Most of the Premier League top six do not have a great record with bringing through home grown talent and the pressure at the Emirates increases with every day Wenger keeps hold of the reins.

My advice to James Maddison? Avoid.
