Norwich City midfielder James Maddison is being tracked the three of the Premier League’s top clubs, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The Canaries have strong ties with Tottenham and the north London club were the first to show an interest in the prodigiously talented attacking midfielder. His talent is underlined by his inclusion in the Football League team of the season.

However, if they were expecting a straightforward deal, Spurs are going to be disappointed; Arsenal, Everton, and Manchester City both declared an interest in the England Under – 21 international.

Maddison learned his craft at Coventry, making 42 appearances including 11 on loan after his move to Carrow Road in February 2016.

After spending last season on loan at Aberdeen, the midfielder returned to Norwich, making 44 appearances, scoring 15 goals.

While the trio of big clubs might turn heads, Maddison wants regular first-team football, opening the door for the Toffees, as well as Brighton and Southampton who are also monitoring his progress. The Saints and Seagulls are, however, aware of his desire to make the step up to Premier League football; relegation is not an option.

Maddison’s current deal runs to 2021, leading the Canaries to feel confident that they can achieve the £25m valuation they placed upon his head.
