Tottenham Hotspur have failed to sign a single new player in the last 16 months, despite losing first-team midfielder Mousa Dembele in this time.

Spurs have yet to fill the void left by the big Belgian, and they could also be forced to replace Christian Eriksen if he is to leave for Madrid this summer (Daily Star).

One playmaker who Spurs have been linked to recently is Leicester City midfielder James Maddison, a man who enjoyed a wonderful breakthrough season in the Premier League (Daily Mail).

Maddison recorded seven goals in his first season at Leicester, including three free-kicks, and also chipped in with seven assists.

Leicester bought Maddison from Norwich City last summer after an impressive Championship campaign, paying only £20m for his signature (BBC).

However, after proving he has what it takes to play in the Premier League, Maddison’s value has shot up, and The Mirror now report that Leicester want £60m for the player.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Tottenham reportedly are bidding that kind of money for Giovani Lo Celso (Gianlucadimarzio), but I would much rather take it and lump it all on Maddison. He is young, English, Premier League proven, and looks the real deal. I would be more than happy paying £60m, as long as we get decent money for Eriksen.
