Tottenham beware! Newcastle could hijack Spurs’ new bid for player

Tottenham will renew their efforts to sign James Maddison from Leicester City this week, but a rival bid from Newcastle United remains possible.

This week, Tottenham will step up their efforts to acquire James Maddison from Leicester City, although a counteroffer from Newcastle United is still a possibility.

Following Newcastle’s acquisition of Milan’s Sandro Tonali, rumors from the most recent England training camp stated Maddison is determined to join Spurs.

Newcastle still thinks they can make a bid for Maddison after paying an initial £55 million for the Italian Under-21 international in a six-year agreement that would rank him as the club’s second-highest move ever.

Leicester want £60m for the 26-year-old, who has one year left on contract, but Spurs’ initial proposal is around half that figure.

Tottenham wants a center defender and another forward, such as Harvey Barnes of Leicester, in addition to completing the £17.4 million signing of Empoli goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario after the player passes his medical on Sunday.

Tottenham’s list of defensive options includes Juventus centre-back Gleison Bremer, Edmond Tapsoba from Bayer Leverkusen, Marc Guehi of Crystal Palace and Wolfsburg’s Micky van der Ven.

Newcastle want a centre back, too, with Palace’s Joachim Andersen among those favoured.

Palace, meanwhile, are keen to sign Torino centre back Perr Schuurs.
