James Maddison has been Arsenal’s main target throughout this summer transfer window.

Brendan Rodgers has talked about his player and his cost, convincing that he values as much as Jack Grealish.

The Leicester City boss hinted that Maddison has the same price as Manchester City’s new star by comparing their abilities.

“Stylistically, I think they’re the same. They are both creators,” said Rodgers,


“But I would say they are both totally different. One is a dribbler – one commits people down the sides. James is more central and he’s more of a passer.

The Foxes head coach indirectly admitted that both Grealish and Maddison are ‘stylistically’ the same.

“I think they are both close. They are both very talented players.


The England international has scored 14 goals and provided 16 assists in the last two Premier League seasons.

The Gunners seem to be unwilling to accept Leicester’s £60m valuation of Maddison this summer, as they prefer a player-plus-cash deal.
