Manchester City join Liverpool in hunt for highly-rated Championship midfielder



Manchester City have become the latest club to join the race to sign Norwich City midfielder James Maddison, according to a report in the Bristol Post.

The Citizens have been watching the progress of Maddison, who has been in excellent form for the Canaries this term, bagging eight goals and notching five assists in the process, despite Norwich not having the sort of season they expected at the beginning of August.

Maddison is also being courted by the likes of Liverpool and Spurs though, and with Norwich reportedly slapping a £30m price tag on their star midfielder’s head, it could well be City who move ahead of the pack in the hunt for the former Coventry man.

City manager Pep Guardiola will be hoping to add some more young talent to his squad for next term, and has come under pressure lately to begin introducing new talent to his squad after only naming six substitutes in the Premier League last weekend.

Norwich though are likely to fight tooth and nail to keep Maddison, and will no doubt be hanging on for as much money as possible if they are forced to sell.
