Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou (57) has requested the signing of James Maddison (Leicester).
Tottenham will be led by Postecoglou from next season. Postecoglou led Celtic to a dominant treble (league, league cup, FA Cup) this season. Tottenham are preparing to make a change with the signing of Postecoglou to a four-year deal that will see him take charge of a team that has thrived on attacking football.
On the club’s official website on Monday, Postecoglou said, “I’m very happy to finally be the manager of such a great club and I’m really looking forward to the future. This is an opportunity to set a new direction for the club, while continuing to uphold the values and traditions of Tottenham.”
With the transfer window approaching, the recruitment process will begin in earnest. One of the first targets Postecoglou wants to pursue is Madsen. On the same day, Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European soccer transfer market, tweeted, “Medison will leave Leicester. Postecoglou has asked clubs to sign him. Tottenham and Newcastle will be in the race.”
Maddison is an attacking midfielder in the English Premier League (EPL). He’s an accurate passer and shooter with a tremendous right-footed kick. He can score as well as assist, and he can also play on the flanks. This season, he led Leicester’s offense with 10 goals and 9 assists in the league 안전놀이터.
However, Leicester fell to 18th place and faced relegation. This has led to the departure of several key players, including Maddison. Tottenham will be looking to capitalize on the Foxes’ situation. What’s more, Maddison’s contract runs until 2024, so Leicester would have to sell him this summer to realize a transfer fee.
The variable is Newcastle. Newcastle had a breakout season this year, finishing third in the league and qualifying for next season’s UEFA Champions League (UCL). Tottenham, on the other hand, finished eighth and failed to qualify for Europe. Newcastle is a well-funded team, so they’re not going to be easy competition for Spurs.
